Soul Candy is the difficult-to-categorize DJ project of Greenville, SC native, Ryan Laffler. His passion for music is driven by the pursuit of understanding how and why music impacts us in different ways. Why do I like this but not that? Why does the same song cause one person to dance and another one person to contemplate their existence and why people park in a driveway but drive down a parkway? Trying to understand how music impacts us has largely shaped Soul Candy’s aggressive and unique mixing style. Bouncing between genres and tempos, sometimes quickly sometimes meditatively, Soul Candy shows are a psychedelic plate of Waffle House hash browns, scattered all the way.
