"Soul Kind of Feeling" was a single released in September 1984 by Australian soul music group Dynamic Hepnotics from their album Take You Higher. It was their highest charting hit, which appeared on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart in October 1984 and peaked at No. 5.[1][2] In 1986, "Soul Kind of Feeling" won the APRA Music Award for 'Most Performed Australasian Popular Work'.[3]

"Soul Kind of Feeling" was written by lead singer, Robert Susz.[4] The 12-inch single version, "Soul Kind of Feeling (12" Hepno Mix)" was remixed and extended from the earlier 7-inch single. Both were issued on Mushroom Records' White Label Records. In 1998, Mushroom released a three-track CD version.

Other uses[edit]

The song featured prominently in the background in Australian soap opera Neighbours until the early nineties. The song was also performed in an episode of Home and Away by Dan Baker (Tim Campbell), at the reception of his wedding to Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou).[5]
