"If you put this album on and you don't connect with it, you ain't got soul..." - Trevor Nelson talks us through his new compilation Soul Selection

Since the mid-1980s, back when Kiss FM was still a pirate radio station, DJ and presenter Trevor Nelson has been a key figure in bringing urban music to the masses. In recent years he's also developed a nice little sideline in compilation albums, applying the skills he learned as a DJ to a series of lovingly curated albums packed with classics from all genres, from hip-hop to R&B to soul.

His latest compilation Soul Selection hits the shelves in stores today and features more than 50 soul-stirring tracks by the likes of James Brown, Marlena Shaw, Roy Ayers, Chaka Khan and many, many more.

With his latest collection is stores this weekend, the DJ gave us a rundown of what we can expect to find on his latest compilation and why the songs on it are so important to him.
