Friday Flashback: Hardsoul feat. Ron Carroll – Back TogetherDavid Akermanis | Friday, June 25th, 2010 | No Comments »
Hailing from the Netherlands, Hardsoul consists of brothers Rogier (DJ Roog) and Greg van Bueren.
Founded in 1997, Hardsoul began releasing music on Soulfuric Recordings, a label owned by Marc Pomeroy and Brian Tappert. This led to another release on Soulfuric, “Sweatshop”, in 2003, before graduating to Defected Records’ sublabel ITH Records, where they released Back Together, a vocal anthem sung by Ron Carroll, in 2003. It received airplay on mainstream radios and topped at #60 in the UK Singles Charts.
They have also remixed tracks for Black & White Brothers, Todd Terry, Blaze, King Britt and Africanism.
In 2004 Roog and Greg launched their own label, Hardsoul Pressings, under the Soulfuric umbrella. In 2006 Roog and Greg launched their second label, R&G Electronics, which is meant to be a platform for the less well known cutting edge in house music.
