2012 has got to be one of the best years for Fitted Life and I. I’m truly grateful to have been a huge part of the ride to Fitted Life’s current success – on top of the connections and networks we’ve made this past year. One event which I’m particularly grateful for is getting acquainted and befriending Joe Kay & Andre Power of SOULECTION. I’ve partnered up with these guys in a past photo coverage of San Diego’s very own Freddie Joachim & AbJo’s live performance at Kava Lounge. Since then, I’ve remained in close contact with the two and documenting live art shows and music events in the Southern California area. I love attending these events to show some love with high appreciation for local artist. Their degree of passion to the arts brings back so much energy towards the community. I’ve been photographing these events since April and it has been a great experience.
For those of you who are wondering who SOULECTION is – I gotta tell you… I must say they have opened my eyes (and ears) to the best timeless & raw music I’ve ever heard in years. Established in 2011, they’ve grown a wide audience for the short time that they have been performing. I actually stumbled upon these guys accidently. One thing that surprised me is how close they were to home than I thought; based out here in Southern California. Their sounds have a wide variety of Future bass, Nu Funk, Soulful hip-hop – “Timeless music”. An amazing part of SOULECTION’S music is that it portrays culture, celebration of life, conscious mindset and love, all qualities which I highly appreciate. I personally think it’s very humbling to have met these local artists/producers whose music is a part of my every day living. Lately I’ve been tuning in to all of the albums posted on their Bandcamp. please lend your ears to these timeless beats and I promise you will not be disappointed.
