Oh, Michael Jackson…I think I speak for everyone here when I say that we love you and miss you.
For those of you only in-like and not fully on the Thriller bandwagon (I’m talking to you, babies of 2013) I submit this YouTube action for your day. Just wait for the vocals to hit and then set aside the next 4:21 because you won’t do …
Longtime friends and collaborators on different projects, production wunderkind Micachu (of Micachu and The Shapes) and her fashion designer/vocalist friend Tirzah, have created an experimental English House-tinged RnB stunner of an EP for Joe Goddard’s Greco-Roman label.

I’ll never forget the first time I heard Quadron’s music. I was sitting in bed checking out MySpace pages looking for something new and different to air that Monday night. I heard soul, beats and vocals and researched a bit more on what this band was. Turns out the producer was Robin Hannibal, who had previously released Living With Owusu and Hannibal, which was a personal favorite! …

From KCRW DJ Aaron Byrd:
I don’t know what’s in the water down in New Zealand, but between the soulful reggae sounds of Fat Freddy’s Drop, and my new Kiwi addiction, Electric Wire Hustle, I want some of it!

She has one of those singular voices that is truly special. While their self-titled album is a collaboration between her …
