August 3, 2013 at 8:43 am


In only a couple of years, Los Angeles production trio (Todd M. Simon, Itai Shapira and Adam Berg) have cemented their reputation in the studio and on stage as the premiere production team and live band for artists like Rhye, Kelis, and Hollie Cook.

They have also garnered the attention of great worldwide tastemakers such as KCRW music director Jason Bentley, the legendary Gilles Peterson of the BBC, Jaime Cullum, Okayplayer, Wax Poetics, Bandcamp and many more.
Rarely emerging from behind closed studio doors, The Decoders love combining their specialized brand of “decoded” classics from the 60’s and 70’s soul movement with an excitingly new blend of genres ranging from Lovers Rock to Dub, Brazilian Music to Psychadelic Soul.

Coco O. (of Quadron), Noelle Scaggs (of Fitz & the Tantrums), Leon Ware, Raul Midon and many others have lended their vocal talents to this special project with more to surely come for each new volume.

In alive setting, The Decoders are 10 piece ensemble featuring LA’s top musicians and session players. Thus far, they have released 2 volumes and a dub remix EP, including a few tunes from their upcoming LP, Adventures From Paradise: A Tribute To Minnie Riperton (vol 3), which will be completed in the fall of 2013 and features special guest vocalists and musicians.

“This is not music, its chemistry. Get into the science.”

Quadron “Baby Be Mine (LIVE)”

March 10, 2012 at 12:58 am

An original music video of this cover came out quite a long time ago, and everyone was excited about it, but I really like this particular live video of Coco’s performance.  Luckily, the sound is pretty good, and it’s in black and white.

Coco is one half of the duo known as Quadron.  Check out their self-titled album.  It WILL change you.

Robin Hannibal “Transit”

October 9, 2011 at 12:55 am

Before I praise this track, let me say that this might be the worst ending to a song I’ve heard in a long time.  That said, I’ve been simmering on this one for a minute.  Really listening to it as much as possible.  Extremely strong beginning, with heavy drums and compelling guitar.  It’s to the point where I’m waking up with this in my head.  Hannibal has been making serious waves in the past two years, especially with the success of Quadron.  He is working with numerous artists on multiple projects, but this is from an EP that is 100% Robin Hannibal.  Production, vocals, everything.  I get a feeling that this is more of an example of demos that Plug Research decided to release, which is why you have certain moments such as the end of this song that make you ask, “what was he thinking?!”  Either way, I love this track…
