A Couple of Prototypes – Soul Cycle Featuring Rogiers & Jesse Boykins III

30 08 2010

Prototype was one of the prime cuts on Andre 3000’s game-changing The Love Below back in 2003. And now we have two outstanding 2010 cover versions from Soul Cycle featuring Rogiers and Jesse Boykins III.

The Soul Cycle version is from their excellent recent album, Flipped. Rogiers vocals are quite beautiful and there’s an outstanding keyboard solo from the group’s leader, Jesse Fischer. If you like this, you’re sure to love the whole album. Get yourself over to their Bandcamp site and download a copy. Tell ’em SoulCuts sent ya! You won’t regret it!

Jesse Boykins’ version is more languid and stretched out, referencing Highways Of My Life, complete with a little Ernie Isley styled fuzz. It’s an ethereal, blissed out cut that’ll be receiving much attention from the new soul cognoscenti. You can download it for free via Jesse’s Bandcamp site. Quick, hop to it!

Sounds like a dead heat to me!
