Badass Soul Collective
Badass Soul Collective is a large ensemble based in The Hague, NL. Born as a community of musicians eager to express their love for Motown and Soul heritage, BSC is now a place where solid groove and powerful horns meet the sweetness and elegance of strings, creating an unique sound that emerges through a variety of their arrangements.
Having one foot in the jazz tradition, BSC looks up to modern-day music and wants to be part of a contemporary scene, while keeping close to their heart an admiration for the sound of the 70’s. A melting pot where hip-hop meets classical music, jazz, funk and whatever is needed to deliver a solid and powerful message of inclusion and hope.
Being a community of many different individuals, BSC’s first objective is to make music that people can relate to, and not only lyrics wise. With their music, BSC aims to create and paint emotions for the listener to experience, from joy to anger, passing through grief and love.
Having released on September 1st 2021 their debut EP, BSC is ready to take a step further and include in their live set some original songs. Despite the love for the current soul classics repertoire from the 70’s, BSC feels the need to express more and be part of a movement of young musicians that want to make their voices heard.
