The studio will be hosted by Studio Soulrock. At the very beginning (at Docklands 31-12-98/01-01-99 to be precise) Carlos Valdes was hit by the Electronic Music Experience. From that moment on, he started to discover what nightlife had to offer. At that time, he wanted to help organizations that impressed him, by promoting events in and around Amsterdam.

After 1.5 years, he worked for several organizations where he carried out various functions and realized it was time to get to some serious action, as he knew this was the world he wanted to work in. He started thinking of a name for his company, a difficult task, but after some puzzling around with his own name, he came up with Soulrock. Carlos backwards makes Solrac. He added some letters and left others out and there it was, Soulrock was born (October 1st 2000).

Soulrock kept expanding its activities, collaborating with various organizations, promoting artists within their booking agency and selective others, taking concepts abroad, providing news about events and scene developments. Hard work and dedication of the past brought todays company; a steady event-, bookings agency and music label.
