Soul Central are a British music production duo consisting of Andy Ward and Paul Timothy,


They had a number 6 hit with "Strings of Life (Stronger on My Own)" on the UK Singles Chart, released on Defected Records[1] and it also reached number 1 on the UK Dance Chart.[2] The track featured vocals from house veteran, Kathy Brown. The Danny Krivitt re-edit also appeared on the Ministry of Sound compilation album, The Annual 2005.

The follow-up single "Need You Now" was an instrumental, and failed to match the success of the previous single, peaking at 109 in the UK.[3]

In May 2006, Soul Central released "In-Ten-City", a single promoted by Pete Tong on his BBC Radio 1 show. The track was released by the record company Soul Heaven/Defected and featured Billie in the vocals. The song's title appeared to pay tribute to the Chicago, Illinois-based R&B and house-music act "Ten City" (derived from intensity), that enjoyed a number of club hits and urban radio hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In August 2007, "Time After Time!" (featuring Abigail Bailey) was released. It did not appear in the UK Singles Chart, but debuted at number 11 in the UK Indie Chart.[4]

In 2008, Soul Central remixed "Glitter", a number 1 hit song by the Japanese star, Ayumi Hamasaki. The remix appeared on her album; Ayu-mi-x 6: Gold.
