Dwele's Forth-coming album, W.ants W.orld W.omen will be in stores June 29, 2010! I've been a LONG-FAN of Dwele, like circa 2003 'Subject' that shit truly changed my life, as so many artists have! Such a neo-soul staple talent, Dwele has stayed pretty consistent over the years, and thou not his BEST track yet, its pretty damn good, here it is for you, first, via LA's KEY to new music!

So, Music is my Life....or a large & inspirational & mood altering part of it! SO I cant help but share this amazing & sultry beautiful new Danish group QUADRON!
Its a real genre defying act and mood creating, consisting of lush beats from Robin Hannibal coupled with Coco's beautiful vocals. If I had to pin it I'd say soul fusion, mixing a bit of jazzy vintage soul r&b with a bit of British styled electronic production and gorgeous instrumentation! And I have to thank my friend and amazing talent Aaron Byrd of KCRW for turning me on to such a life-changing group. To be completely honest, and yes I have always been obsessive with my music but, I have listened to the BEST song "Horse" about 250x since first hearing it 48 hours ago. When I'm not listening to it, I still here it or am longing to hear it again, or sing it, its interestingly perfectly in my range, and oh I wish I sounded as sweet as Coco ;) No joke. Its that good. Well the whole album, is and I'd urge you to buy it...but as a taste, here are in my opinion the two best songs of their debut album "Quadron", 'Horse' and 'Average Fruit'! As it stands local indie heavyweight record label Plug Research — which has put out albums from Flying Lotus, Shafiq Husayn, Milosh, Mia Doi Todd and countless others — is now releasing the album with distribution.
And if you become addicted as I did, and I hope you do.... so then you will want to see them LIVE in LA (yes they are from Denmark HAHA)....Mr Byrd along with KCRW, is producing a show + live DJ set/w/ vocalist, on Wed April 14th at Zanzibar and you can get presale tix for this double banger, only $12 here....
FREE DOWNLOADS for you!
