Spiritland Legends: Soulquarians with Stephen Titmus


  • Hip Hop
  • Jazz/Funk/Soul

Even if you don’t recognise the ‘Soulquarians’ name, you’ll almost certainly be familiar with the people involved: D’Angelo, Questlove, and J Dilla were all founding members of the hip hop-informed neo-soul collective, with artists like Erykah Badu, Q-Tip, Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and more later joining their ranks.

The Soulquarians were known for their intense collaborations, technically ambitious music, and their progressive, good-natured lyricism. They also played a wealth of instruments, gravitating away from the sample-heavy sound of late 90s hip hop in favour of the intricate melodies, dynamics, and rich textures of live instrumentation.

Stephen Titmus joins us for the evening, Playing music from the collective behind some of the best Hip Hop and Soul of the late ‘90’s and early ‘00s.
