Pitchfork have released this brilliantly animated short video documenting the rise of the “Soulquarians”, a group of artists who are credited with the rise of the Neo-Soul movement of the late 90’s. The founding members of the group – Questlove from The Roots, D’Angelo, James Poysner and J Dilla – found a common interest in the offbeat rhythms of modern underground music as well as love for classic Motown and Soul music. Making Jimi Hendrix’s old studio in New York City their headquarters, the collective were responsible for some of the most classic recordings in modern music – from D’Angelo’s Voodoo, to Erykah Badu’s Mama’s Gun.
