SOUL HEAVEN RECORDS

Soul Heaven came about from a conversation International resident & Master At Work Louie Vega had with original owner Oli White discussing the idea of taking Soulful house music to large-scale audiences & events around the world. Ministry of Sound seemed like the obvious choice as a world-class venue to launch this concept so Oli contacted Gareth Cooke and Simon Patterson who were running Rulin at MOS on Saturdays. It was decided that Bobby and Steve would be London Residents alongside Jeremy Newall, Phil Asher and Chrissy T & the first date was fixed. The name came about after Simon & Oli heard the Pastaboys mix Soul Heaven in the box at Ministry & a perfect name was chosen for a perfect night!

Bobby & Steve parted company along with Jeremy & Chrissy in 2003 but by this time the team was already established with Phil Asher, Andy Ward, Aaron Ross & Neil Pierce, soon to be joined by present owner Fleur Woolford in 2004 alongside an international roster which firmly placed Soul Heaven at the forefront of soulful house events around the world. Soul Heaven parties (House Music touched by Soul) always create a great buzz of excitement whether it’s a sell out season in Ibiza with Louie Vega, a classy pool party in Miami for WMC or capacity road block event for Masters At Work at MOS.

Soul Heaven has had a long standing residence at Ministry of Sound in London & has hosted parties in America, Australia, South Africa, China, Thailand, Korea, Indonesia & closer to home in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Holland, Portugal & Switzerland. Soul Heaven has played host to some of the biggest names in House Music from International residents; LITTLE LOUIE VEGA and partner KENNY DOPE (plus of course MAW) to, TONY HUMPHRIES, FRANKIE KNUCKLES,JOCELYN BROWN, LIL LOUIS, BARBARA TUCKER, ANANE, JAZZY JEFF, DJ SPEN, OSUNLADE, JOE CLAUSSELL, RON CARROLL, KERRI CHANDLER, DENNIS FERRER, BLAZE, TERRY HUNTER, KARIZMA, MR. V & all who have contributed either at their live events or have mixed for their now established series of compilation CDs.
