Quasimode – Music Can Change the World

31 01 2011

We have to thank Soul DJ and all round top bloke Roger Williams for introducing SoulCuts to this fabulous slice of Japanese Jazz-Funk by Quasimode. If you’re a fan of work by Mondo Grosso, Monday Michiru, M-Swift and the like, then this will be right up your street. If you’re unfamiliar with the aforementioned groups but enjoy jazz dance with a soulful slant, you’re going to love this celebratory track, Music Can Change the World, replete with deft horn and string arrangements. It’s a storming, energetic cut, brimming with positivity and overwhelmingly good vibes. The album came out on Blue Note in Japan last week but I have no idea if it’s coming out elsewhere. We’ll keep you posted.

And if you need the track on your iPizzle, grab the podcast of Roger’s excellent Soulsorts show that airs on the last Sunday of every month. His show is always worth a listen if you’re a fan of independent quality soul. His last show featured new music from Reel People, Joy Rose, Big Brooklyn Red and Heston among others. Need I say more?
