"The soul tapes"

Hey there,
Yes, I’ve recorded a soul album, pure soul and some good old rhythm and blues. New songs mostly, with two of my favourite songs covered too.I had the dream of making an album that’s influenced by Hi Records (Al Green, Ann Peebles and many other classic artists are on that label), but also felt like adding some rhythm and blues. So this is a “dream come true” side project, you could say. -Billie

German techno auteur Pantha Du Prince will release his first proper studio album since his 2010 breakthrough Black Noise and 2013’s collaboration with The Bell Laboratory, Elements of Light.
On the new album’s conceptual framework Weber says, “Black Noise was very much about me being alone in a small room in Berlin and composing. The Triad opens the structure to more human ways of interacting, not digitized ways of interacting. It's not about Facebook; it's about meeting up and jamming. I wanted to cut through the digital dust that surrounds us.”
