The Soul Rebels are rebelling against one, albeit detestable thing: starchy paint-by-numbers music.
As the New Orleans collective gears up to release their eclectic Power = Power mixtape on December 3 as a free download, the eight-member band has dropped a few aural treats along the way. These include: a remix of their cover of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” a sonic hodgepodge of Jay-Z classics fused together and titled “Thank You” and other stand-out edits of modern music, including a Drake cover of “Headlines,” from his second LP Take Care.
Somewhere between Cypress Hill, Brand Nubian and Miles Davis, The Soul Rebels are filling the gaps. Power = Power features studio recordings, live versions and remixes of original works, making for a colorful musical mishmash, in which a hint of NOLA brass flair can always be found.
Hear for yourself in our exclusive premiere of "504" (MiiM Remix). The original – named for the NOLA area code - is from the band’s 2012 album, Unlock Your Mind. Dial in.
