Frank Raines (aka The Soul Controller) returns for the 2nd time to grace Soul Summit with his vast range of funk both contemporary and new. As the owner of Funk Night Records, Frank has released just over 100+ releases since it’s inception in 2010, importing HEAVY funk sounds from Estonia and Russia (The Soul Surfers/Great Reviver/Misha Panfilov) as well as mining talent from the Detroit area. He is truly a force within the community and an outreach partner for bringing in funk sounds from across the globe. Frank also heads up the legendary Motor City Funk Night party held in Detroit every last Friday of the month.

He is the exoskeleton, backbone and architect of two legendary parties and is responsible for digging up and “discovering” many records that are now considered staples on this scene. Growing up in Detroit, he moved to Chicago in the mid-90s and worked alongside Soul Summit residents Duke Grip and Sloppy White at Reckless Records. Scott was one of THE ORIGINAL DJs of Danny’s famed ‘Soul Party’ along with Supreme Court(land) Green and was also one of the creators of Detroit’s famed ‘Motor City Funk Night’ parties when it was hosted at The Detroit Contemporary.
