SXSW // Quantic + Alice Russell

It’s impossible to see Alice Russel sing live—as we did on a sunny afternoon at SXSW—and not get chills. The UK chanteuse has the kind of voice that will work its way into your mind and just won’t let go. Paired with her regular collaborator, producer/DJ Quantic, Alice’s old soul chops fast-forward into the new century. We stole a moment with the pair backstage, when we got them talking about the stirrings of soul, new music, and recording in Cali, Colombia, where Quantic has built his Sonido del Valle studio.
