Soul Summit DJs + Guest DJs David Haffner & Cyrus D
Proudly returning to the Soul Summit, David Haffner treats the search for a higher plane of music with reverence – that ethereal and elusive feeling of hearing songs you know already, songs that you feel like you know, and songs you’ve never heard before. Music is his church. Building on the foundation of the Friends of Sound – his record store of 11 years – he currently works at Records By Mail in Portland. Easily the largest and most respected mecca of records in the world, his new position has honed his collection and knowledge. A veritable vinyl tastemaker to tastemakers worldwide – expect nothing but the finest selections.
In addition, he is the force behind multiple reissue projects through labels like Athens Of The North, Jazzman, Light In The Attic, Big Crown, and his own label: The Preservation Project.
After 25 years of music, records, and djing, he has traveled worldwide sharing music. Most importantly, he has known and called many of the most influential people of a generation friends.
Cyrus D (now 35) came up in Lawrence, KS in the early/mid 2000s and has now been passionately in the game for 15 years. During that time he’s held DJ residencies in Lawrence, KS, Kansas City, MO, Saint Louis, and with Austin Boogie Crew in TX. He’s traveled nationwide looking for records, he’s dealt thousands of records privately on his own and publicly through his time co-managing both Friends Of Sound (Austin/SA, TX) and now at Love Garden Sounds (Lawrence, KS).
Cyrus’ love for DJing has grown with the times to the point where his own path embodies his content. His sets champion a far-reaching ethos. While every song is bound by a raw and soulful groove, every song is also a moving part in an ever-changing story on the dancefloor: tracks in his sets are inspired by their predecessors just as they are influential to the next, things are always moving forward.
This will be Cyrus’ 3rd time @ Soul Summit. Attendees can rest assured that the grooves will slap, the soul will reach deep, and that the thoughtfully mixed collage will serve as a refreshing take on music in 2018.
