Clear Soul Forces – Detroit Revolution​(​s)

While searching for some new soul albums worth listening to from 2012 on Bandcamp (I found none), I found this album. Now, it’s not actually a soul album, but I can definitely feel it. This is Detroit Revolution(s) from hip hop group Clear Soul Forces and it is very good. As the title shows, the four piece comprised of E-Fav, L.A.Z., Noveliss and producer/emcee Ilajide hail from the birthplace of Motown, Detroit and, as they say themselves on their Facebook page, “bring the soul back to Motown”. Playing through, you really get the impression that these guys have learnt from the musicians who gave Detroit its fame and the album seems like both a homage to those past greats and an attempt at making a mark off their own backs. Ilajide knows what he’s doing with the beats and they all know what they’re talking about.

It’s pay-what-you-want so dig deep and support a great group.
