Founded in 2013 by Zebuel Early, Smoked Out Soul started out as a mixtape concept fusing southern hip hop beats and modern production with classic funk & soul. Eventually he took that sound to clubs, started a bi-monthly party in San Francisco which gave birth to a touring live act, a production team and record label.
Smoked Out Soul (S.O.S) is a one of kind party held at a premier night club in San Francisco now every Thursday at Monarch SF and performed at festivals and venues around the country. DJ / instrumentalists Zebuel and Will Magid are joined by drummers Paul Oliphant and Brandon Lee to bring you a sound that is both classic and futuristic: “Old School Taste, New School Bass”. S.O.S. blurs the line between a live show and a DJ party, bringing in the bay’s finest musicians and DJ’s playing on top rated sound systems. Come enjoy delicious cocktails with beautiful people as classic soul music is reinterpreted in the moment.
Smoked Out Soul aims at blending the thriving DJ culture with the live music scene in The Bay Area, putting a fresh spin on a classic sound, tunes rooted in soul with a nod to the future.
