Music from your favorite DJ you’ve never heard of. This guy is a friend of mine from a little ol’ city called Buffalo, NY. He sent over this gem and it definitely merited some exposure on URB. Just for some credibility, back in 2006, DJ Cutler won Scion’s national Free Up Your Mix contest for the best remix.
Here’s what he had to say about the current mix:
“Here’s a new mix of tunes from the past couple of years that I’m really digging… As per usual all vinyl (save for track one which isn’t yet on wax). Support these artists and buy their records now before they’re out of print! Feel free to share far and wide and many thanks for listening.
DJ Nu-Mark, member of lauded group Jurassic 5, chops it up with Quantic aka Will Holland, a trail blazing artist whose live band incarnations (see Quantic Soul Orchestra) and collaborations (wow inducing Alice Russell) have blown minds internationally. Currently, Quantic is on the road with his Ondatropica project with Colombian musician, Mario Galeano. DJ NU-MARK is releasing the Broken Sunlight 10” series over the course of 2012. The series will be consolidated into a full-length album later this year with a docu-style accompanying DVD. The pair also collaborate on an upcoming single for Broken Sunlight series, “Tropicalifornia.”
These two musical forces of nature share their thoughts on evolving with new musical formats, traveling with toys, gear they can’t live without and the power of listening. …MORE
Today marks the release of Quantic & Alice Russell’s album “Look Around the Corner.” Together, multi-instrumentalist/producer/DJ Will Holland aka Quantic and UK singer, Alice Russell, came together to create an incredible record bringing back life to the sounds of Rotary Connection, Minnie Ripperton, etc.
In celebration of the album release, check a beautifully shot one-take video of Alice Russell and pianist doing a stripped down version of the song “I’d Cry.” The audio from this video, is a bonus track on the album, exclusively at iTunes. The video was shot and directed by B+ for www.Mochilla.com.
You can also stream the entire “Look Around the Corner” album this week at AOL/SPINNER!
Both video and audio for this mini documentary were captured at a direct to disc recording session in The Carvery Studios in Hackney, London in August 2011 during the London Riots.
The album version of this track is on the new Quantic & Alice Russell album “Look Around The Corner” out April 3rd via Tru Thoughts.
“I’ll Keep My Light In My Window” is one of Russell’s all-time favorite songs which has scarcely sounded better than in this current incarnation, on which she exercises her famed powers as a classic soul vocalist.
Quantic & Alice Russell will hit the US for a string of dates including SXSW and you can also stream the album version of the track below.
