The popular and influential music icon, Prince Rogers Nelson died at his home in Minnesota at the age of 57 a few weeks ago. Until now and many years to come – if not forever – the legend will be remembered for his contributions to music, fashion and the lives he touched in one way or the other.
Surprisingly, Prince has gained more fame posthumously. There has been an all out releases of his songs through edits, bootlegs and mix sets all over the internet.
During the Coachella Weekend show 2, Soul Clap dedicated their entire set in the Yuma Tent to Prince. The music bank shared their favorite original tunes, edits and remixes online, too.
As a follow-up to previous recordings, they have today released the mix via mixcloud as a full stream of that set for the world to enjoy. What a great idea in favor of fans and music lovers scattered everywhere around the world.
“News of Prince’s passing came smack dab in the middle of our first ever Coachella experience. We were of course shocked and knew immediately that a tribute of some sort was in order… But HOW could we POSSIBLY pick one song or two to represent our gratitude for The Purple One’s immeasurable musical contributions? We wondered, what songs would other artists be playing? Should it be a slow intro or a peak moment? After hours of deliberation we realized that we had to dedicate our ENTIRE 2nd weekend performance to one of our greatest musical heroes. Partially planned but mostly improvised, we took the crowd, ourselves and each other on a journey through some of our favorite Prince hits. By the end the Yuma Tent was full of tears and love and dancing bodies, all celebrating the life and music of Prince Rogers Nelson. It was a truly humbling experience, thank you for joining us.” – Soul Clap
