Eyeplug defines its Soul focus, as a passion for the mainly Black American independent music explosion that happened in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s with roots in the Gospel/Church/Testify communities, that fused R‘n’B with these deeply emotional expressions from the Congregation. Soul Music is about poverty and day to day drudgery and the emotions that are spawned from tough times and limited Civil Rights.
The Soul singers of the golden period of the 1960’s and 1970’s became the voice and heart of rebellion, that spearheaded massively long overdue socio-political changes. The music has evolved into many sub-genres and takes on many forms and is probably best knock globally by the record labels Motown and Stax.
