Look Around The Corner

Quantic & Alice Russell

The first full collaborative album from musical soulmates Quanticand Alice Russell, two of the UK's best loved independent artists and longtime leading lights of the international soul/funk - and more recently, latin - music scene. This intoxicating session mixes sweet soul and blues with overtones of folk, gospel and lush latin rhythms, from the inimitable swing of Quantic's outfit, the Combo Barbaro, who form the core band. Recording at Quantic's own studio in his adopted home of Cali, Colombia, the producer and singer/songwriter Russell had the space
and time to revel in their creative chemistry, building on the spirit of some of their previous collaborative
tracks which have peppered the years (including big hitters for Quantic Soul Orchestra and for Alice Russell's solo guise). The culmination of a somewhat will they-won't-they ‘waiting game' for fans, it proves beautifully that good things come to those who wait.

"Two favourite modern artists collide and collude in a dreamy-sounding, rhythmically spacious reunion.
Only complaint is there isn't more!" - Harry Shearer NPR , USA

"They're back - two of my favourites from around the world" - Gilles Peterson BBC Radio1
