UK based DJ/production duo Soul of Man were at the forefront of the late 90’s breakbeat uprising, founding the seminal label Finger Lickin’ Records, which would release music by leading breakbeat acts such as Krafty Kuts, Lee Coombs and Plump DJs. Soul of Man are comprised of Jem Panufnik and Justin Rushmore, who founded Finger Lickin’ Records in 1998. They were based in Camden, England, where the label’s office also functioned as a record shop, café, and bar known as Vinyl Addiction/Bar Vinyl, where DJs would spin nightly. Panufnik and Rushmore inaugurated Finger Lickin’ Records with the debut Soul of Man 12″ EP release, Love & Hate, in 1998, followed later in the year by another Soul of Man EP, Between the Eyes. In 1999 they made their DJ mix album debut as Soul of Man with Breakthru, Vol. 1: Revelation on the short-lived label Sixty Degrees North Records, followed later in the year by another mix album, It’s a Finger Lickin’ Thang, this one on their own label.
