SOUND SPOT: LIQUID SPIRITS
Looking for some fresh musical sounds to get away from the same ole' same we call mainstream radio? Of course you are. Well, you can start by checking out my new favorite group representing Amsterdam, Netherlands that call themselves Liquid Spirits. This is a very diverse of talented folks that have come together for one common cause, which is making good soulful music. Liquid Spirits consists of 8 members (4 leadsingers + 4 instrumentalists) and they have collaborated with great artists like N'Dambi, Leon Ware, Lalah Hathaway, Phonte (Little Brother) and Daughters of Soul. With that members I think it's easy to name them the Wu-Tang Clan of U.K. Soul and R&B.
If you already dig the flavor of the groups like The Rebirth, The Brand New Heavies and Owusu & Hannibal, this group maybe right up your alleyway. Their first album entitled "Liquid Spirits" dropped back in December 2006, and even though it was a solid release it didn't make much noise over here in the United States. Fast-forwarding to 2008, L. Spirits are releasing their second album "Music" in November 2008. After hearing a few joints off of their promo joint, I'm digging it! If you snatched up my last mixx, you already heard a track from this project featuring Phontigalo.
