The Classics – Series 2: SOUL


Still can’t believe its around the corner (Wed. Dec. 2) but here we are at The Classics – Series 2: SOUL.

Been having just as much fun with this version as the first along with giving you guys, both online and off, some cool extras, strong if not stronger content, and if things go my way – my surprise feature will blow minds.

Big shouts to Karim (Smirnoff), Jeremy (Lounge of 3) Amy and Dana (The Source), DJ YZO, Nick Da 1da, DJ 2-Tone Jones, Soul 1 (Frank White Gallery NYC), Tom Nikosey, and Mike (Rock Pop Gallery).

Washington, DCSoul. It’s considered by most to be a weighty word.  It’s used to describe a variety of people, places, and things and even the most intangible of ideas.  Soul has implications of every kind, from food to the spiritual, but perhaps none are greater than it being used to define an era and a genre of music.

And, coming off of the success of their RAP exhibition, on Wednesday December 2 Art vs Commerce, Smirnoff Vodka, and The Source Magazine will again partner on the second installment of The Classics – this time with Series 2: SOUL.  Similar to the first exhibition, this version will feature a bevy of album cover art however this one will consist of over forty classic Soul album covers, courtesy of DJ YZO.  SOUL, in some ways, will actually serve as a prequel to RAP, in that a variety of the albums on display contain songs that have been sampled and used in many classic rap music records.

Taking it’s lead from RAP, SOUL, which will take place on Wednesday December 2nd at Lounge of 3 (1013 Ust NW), 5pm-9pm, will again have Nick Da 1da and DJ 2-Tone Jones providing the sounds, along with DJ YZO.  Guests will also be treated to a new series of complimentary signature cocktails (7pm-9pm), courtesy of Smirnoff, which include the Stevie Wonder and Gil Scott Heron (Note: Lounge of 3 still serves the signature drinks from the RAP exhibition).

In addition to the album covers displayed, SOUL will also have its own series of cultural projects and a few extras that include a:

  • Interview: Tom Nickosey (
  • Instrument Highlight: The Clavinet
  • Connoisseur Profile: Nick Da 1da
  • Soul Food items added to the menu
  • Surprise Feature
