Quantic & Alice Russell with Combo Bárbaro – “Look Around The Corner” video

Watch this stunning live recording of “Look Around The Corner”, by Quantic and Alice Russell, performing with Quantic‘s wonderful band Combo Bárbaro. If you’re new to the powerhouse soul vocals of Alice, you should definitely dig through her discography–she’s a singing queen. And over Quantic‘s warm production and live instrumentation of the band… wheeeeeew, perfection.

The video was filmed and directed by B+. The song was recorded and cut live in Hackney on August 8th, last year, during the London Riots. It’s now available on a deluxe, full-color 10″ vinyl (Fat Beats) and digital download (iTunes).

SOUNDCHECK: Soapbox Melodics

I just recently got put up on Soapbox Melodics. I came across the video for their 2009 track, “Nevermind“, and marked it to “Watch Later” on youtube. Started watching it this weekend and was really feelin’ the style and sound. And Anya‘s (the gorgeous girl in the image above) soulful and alluring voice pulled me in. Created in 2007 by Anya and Dirty Nate, and joined by another member named Darby, Soapbox Melodics is a hip hop crew from the Bay Area (San Francisco). They incorporate other styles into the hip hop groove such as downtempo, soul, jazz, and funk. The music is incredibly appealing to me, so that’s why I’m here sharing it with you!
