Battle of the 1Bands


Born in Newark, New Jersey, Isaac “Soup” Campbell is a multi-faceted, Brooklyn-based creative with an expansive array of talents. Most notably, he is recognized by his work as a DJ and photographer. Now in his sixth year of DJing, Soup has established himself as a prominent player in the ever- shifting culture of NYC nightlife; with every set, he converts new ears into loyal fans and followers. He stands out in his craft through a well-versed knowledge of what is current as well as what inspires, pulling nostalgia from various genres, including: Hip-Hop, RnB, Soul, Funk, Reggae, Afrobeat, House, and more. Soup is self-driven and set to outwork everyone, but his largest source of inspiration comes from the memory of his late younger brother whom he lost to cancer in 2008. He seeks to honor his brother’s love for music by fulfilling his dream to become a successful DJ.
