Professor P & DJ Akilles would like to thank:
Jacqueline and Saša at Rumblewood + crew for their great work and determination. Leo and Jakob for forming two epic, yet short-lived, bands with us. Theo for being a good sport and a great A&R douche. All the fantastic people lending us equipment, clothes etc during the making of this video. Hanna Lambertz for helping us out with the scenography. Footish.se for hooking us up with shoes/gear and Tommy at Zellout for letting us use their office to shoot the record label scenes.
About Rock Your Soul:
”Rock Your Soul” might sound like a classic 96 BPM banger, and in most ways it is. Lyrically however, there are more layers than what you may hear the first time you listen. 15 rock artists/bands are incorporated in the first verse and 16 soul artists/bands in the second verse through various forms of wordplay. See https://genius.com/Professor-p-and-dj-akilles-rock-your-soul-lyrics for lyrics. ”Rock Your Soul” is taken from the forthcoming Professor P & DJ Akilles EP ”Rock Your Soul EP” scheduled to be released later this fall/winter.
