G.E.D. Soul Records is a label from Nashville, Tennessee founded back in 2007. With artists on their roster such as DeRobert & The Half-Truths, A.J. and the Jiggawatts, The Gips and Sky Hi, the label is all about uncovering raw funk and soul music. Authenticity is key there: contemporary artists who sound like they’ve taken a time machine from the heydays of deep funk and soul.
G.E.D. Soul Records was founded by Dave Singleton and Nick Devan. Both of them are also part of Magic In Threes, an instrumental trio part of G.E.D. Records grounded in an intriguing mix of cinematic soul, library records, and hip-hop beats.
The Nashville-based label releases a handful of vinyl records each year, always putting the music first rather than throwing everything on wax for the sake of releasing it. All from G.E.D.’s own Poor Man Studios located in the north of Music City.

When sampling from Tracklib a single sample license is valid for all available tracks of a song. The total sample time is counted using the master track as a reference, so if you sample the same five seconds from all separate tracks it's still only five seconds total sample time.
