The Afrosonic Collective and Providence Black Repertory are proud to present a very special AfroSonic Jump party featuring the band TORTURED SOUL.

This amazing trio from NYC has already blessed us with their soulful sounds for Sound Session a few years ago and is coming back for their CD album release " Do you miss me" Friday May 29th as part of their new WORLDWIDE tour.

Called "the future of house music" by Gilles Peterson, Tortured Soul was born of the simple yet adventurous belief that modern dance music can be performed completely live. Their unique live performances have astounded audiences around the world, from top nightclubs such as Fabric (London) to 15,000+ crowds at the Montreal Jazz Festival, while their recorded oeuvre pushes the genre boundaries of soul, dance, and pop. From their now-classic early singles such as "I Might Do Something Wrong," to their highly-lauded debut album Introducing (2006 Purpose/R2 Records), Tortured Soul's style is both an echo of the past and a challenge to the future, combining elements of old soul and funk with a modern dancefloor sensibility.

On March 6th 2009 Tortured Soul will drop their new album Did You Miss Me (TSTC001) on the band's own newly formed TSTC Records (released on Dome UK/Europe, Columbia Japan), a 13-song set that picks up right where Introducing left off. The title is both a tongue-in-cheek nod to the fans who have been waiting with baited breath for the band's sophomore effort, as well as an allusion to the primary motif of the album -- travel and it's various tribulations. Drummer/vocalist John-Christian Urich, bassist JKriv and keyboardist Ethan White have played close to 400 shows together worldwide in Tortured Soul's 5-year touring history, so it's no wonder they have transit on the brain.

This will be an amazing event also featuring an opening set by the AfroSonic Collective DJs BlackDove, Mikedelick, Nick de Paris and Dublin.

Cover will be $10, doors will open at 9pm, don't miss this very special occasion to see this amazing band perform LIVE at the Black Rep!
