Catch The BeatThe Best Of The Soul Underground
hat gave us rare groove, go-go, hip hop and house, the magazine delivered consistently brilliant writing about the artists, DJs and clubs at the heart of these scenes (which established titles like NME and Melody Maker largely sidelined).
Collecting the best pieces from the magazine as well as all its charts, rare photos and hand-picked news stories, Catch The Beat is a unique and evocative record. It was the first to interview many artists who later became stars, as well as covering scores of influential DJs and producers who were otherwise ignored. For clubbers, DJs and record collectors this is an essential time capsule.
