VIDEO: Baba Soul brings original soul

Written by 
Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk and a hint of reggae combine with Baba Soul and the Professors of Funk in their official debut/video single - If You Love Me.

The charming video introduces us the smartly dressed, dreadlocked singer who sounds like a combination of James Brown and modern soul legend Charles Bradley.

We've been following the soul singer for several years while he and his band cultivated their sound with shows across Europe, entertaining crowds with his vintage soul voice.


From roots in Portugal to his home in Norway, Baba Soul (Hugo Pereira) leads the eight-member band Professors of Funk and this debut gives an ideal example of their retro soul music.

If You Love Me - is the first single from Baba Soul & The Professors of Funk upcoming album, “Chronotapes”, scheduled for release 16th of June 2017.

  • Public Secret won't be a secret for long
    The debut single from Copenhagen-based future soul band, Public Secret - Tears (To Water Her Roses) is the first beacon to what we feel will become a shining soul light.

    Inspired by the sounds of Bilal, Andersen Park, Frank Ocean, D'Angelo and Thundercat, Tears (To Water Her Roses) is a beautifully titled, lyrically engaging track. Deftly produced by Lush Reality, the tight soulful rhythm builds to a dynamic and passionate crescendo. 

    Released with the digital track is a creative music video, filmed and directed by band members Ölle Häggberg and August Campeotto. In the video hooded lead singer Bobby Bovell (who we discovered as a solo singer) meanders against the backdrop of Copenhagen's futuristic urban architecture.
