AM444: Album Sampler

AM444 is the new collaboration project of Chinese singer ChaCha (chachachina) and Dutch producer Jay.Soul (jay.soul)

Guiyang, China native ChaCha is part of Shanghai's premiere reggae crew Uprooted Sunshine and has performed all over China as well as in Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam etc. She has also already recorded with the likes of Kode 9 (UK - Hyperdub), Clive Chin (Randy's Studio 17, Jamaica), Jahtari (Germany), Sickstar & Sunbiz (Shanghai) and many others. She's generally considered as one of China's brightest underground music stars, switching effortlessly from toasting over reggae, dubstep and drum & bass tracks, to singing soulful melodies over hip-hop grooves, downtempo and funky electronica. She also writes her own lyrics.

Jay.Soul (aka The Groove Architect) is a veteran underground music producer, beatmaker and dj from Amsterdam, currently living in Shanghai. He has produced a wide range of tracks for Mr.Windmill (Netherlands), Cecilia Stalin (UK/Sweden), Sole Profit (USA), Giovanca (Netherlands), Corey (Netherlands), NineFifty (Netherlands), and many other artists as well as remixed Nas, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Proov, Roots Manuva, etc.

Ever since hearing ChaCha sing and mc in 2008 at Shanghai's best underground club The Shelter (where Jay is one of the resident dj's), plans were made to work together. Due to both artists' busy schedules it took a while, but now the collaboration is finally a fact: AM444

Debut EP expected February 2011.

Style: Electronic, Soulful, Leftfield, Pop, Beats

"Held"  by Ernesto (Sweden)

I wish I could tell you all about Ernesto, his life, his music, etc. Truth is, this track was sent to me a couple of years ago and since then, I can't find any further info on Ernesto. Always loved this groove and looked forward to a collabo with this artist. Maybe this time around you all can help me. Let's put an APB out on Ernesto and here's to hearing from him soon. Until then my friends, enjoy....

Whatever happened to SEEK?

Does anyone remember the group SEEK? They came out of Atlanta and had that smooth, mellow vibe of soul music that we appreciate? I remember having quite a few conversations with group member Freddie Luster a few years back. This was wayyy before I started podcasting, yeah, back during my days in the "mixtape" game. So what happened to SEEK? Does anyone know or have any leads? If you find them or a point of contact, drop us a line so we can reconnect. In the meantime, listen to "Believe Me" which came from the album "Journey Into Day".
