Q-Sounds Recording was founded by Chris Thomas & Ludovic Bors aka Norman Smuggler in 2009. It’s the one and only French Label exclusively dedicated to Soul music. Ludo & Chris are both music fans, diggers, DJs, musicians & producers. Their aspiration was to produce & release records they would like to listen to. ​ They built Q-Sounds like an old 60s Soul label, with a house band, a crew of musicians who would back different singers. Their recording method is preferably live and on Tape in their friends’ studio to capture that authentic sound:The Q- SOUND ! Throughout the years, several vocal bands emerged and Q-Sounds produced quite a few records with their répertoires. Their back catalog containing over 40 vinyl records is pretty impressive considering the 100% DIY modus operandi. In 2021 Q-Sounds Recording consists of 4 live bands : Principles Of Joy since 2017, The Vogs since 2016, Laura Llorens & The Shadows Of Love since 2019 and the instrumental all star band The Supertights since 2019.

Le label Q-Sounds Recording a été fondé en 2009 sous l’impulsion de Chris Thomas & Ludovic Bors.

Musiciens, djs, diggers et fans de Soul, ils ont créé un label afin de pouvoir sortir des disques correspondant à leurs aspirations musicales.

Ils ont organisé le label selon un schéma bien connu dans la Soul américaine des années 60 : un groupe maison capable de produire et jouer le répertoire des différentes voix du label. A cette organisation, ils ont ajouté un mode de production analogique sur bande privilégiant la prise live avec un son brut, afin de faire naitre de cette émulation une véritable identité: le son Q-Sounds Recording.
