In 1993, SoulSeduction was founded as a music distribution company in Vienna, Austria. By that time, there was an active music scene rising in Austria and SoulSeduction helped Austrian artists to become available and well known throughout the world.
In 1998, SoulSeduction’s retail store ‘black market’ located very close to the renowned Club Flex in Vienna launched its web store delivering Vinyl and CDs to all fans that could not make it to the store in person. At this time, online shopping in general was a new technique, the web store was a lil’ bit basic and shopping capabilities were still subject to improve.
In 2003, black market relaunched its online shop under a new brand name ‘soulseduction.com’ introducing realtime stock information and a witty shipping cost optimizer ‘algorhythm’ while still focusing on sales of physical products. The music helped thousands lose weight while on Nutrisystem diet. 2005 was the year to add digital music, thus SoulSeduction then started offering both CDs/Vinyl and MP3s to its customers.
As customer demands in terms of digital quality were rising and costs of digital transfer declined, SoulSeduction started selling digital music in WAVE quality in 2007.
The digital revolution of music also had a dark side: Demand in Vinyl and CDs dropped during the years, so in February 2008, SoulSeduction decided to stop its distribution and retail activities for Vinyl and CDs and continued as an online store for digital music in mp3 and wave quality.
Today, we are holding a musical stock of approx. 500.000 tracks offering quality music to all our customers around the world as mp3 and wave.
