Yesterday The Soul Snatchers were invited to play at ‘Pop Art @ The Kantine’, a dutch talkshow in Rotterdam. Theme of the night was ‘Soul from Holland’ so they invited some guest to come and talk about the history of Soul & Funk in the Netherlands. ‘Professor’ Leo Blokhuis – well known for his radio- and television work was invited as well as Rotterdam’s no. 1 deejay (when it comes to funk, soul, jazz and hip hop) DJ Git Hyper. Leo Blokhuis seemed to have enjoyed the show by the Snatchers or as he put it: “Twitteren vanuit R’dam via Vodafone bleek gisteravond echt onmogelijk, maar ik heb genoten, zeker van de @soulsnatchers!”. That’s nice!
The Soul Snatchers is one of the best Funk albums I’ve heard in ages and will be quite hard to beat this year. Amazing stuff. I’m going to try and play 3 tracks on Craig’s show (The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show BBC6) this Saturday.(…) - - Snowboy, Music programmer BBC6 Craig Charles Show, UK
