Soul II Soul:
Soul II Soul have been producing memorable quality music since the late eighties. They've sold over 6.8 million albums in 35 territories across the globe and appeared on over 100 compilation albums. Their Club Classics Vol. 1 album was named one of the top 50 British Albums Ever by Q Magazine. They began as a sound system in the early 80s, playing at various house blues parties, street parties and local youth clubs, adopting a unique style which became known as 'Funki Dred'. Soul II Soul signed to Virgin Records, and the rest is history. Tracks such as 'Keep On Movin' and 'Back To Life' have stood the test of time.

Backed by his band The Light, Hooky first played 'Unknown Pleasures' at the Factory club in Manchester in 2010, and has continued to tour the back catalogue ever since.
