About urban soul

Two singers, the classical rock quartet, alto sax and a wide use of analog synthetizers are the source of Urban Soul’s live sound. The two voices are involved together to create complex harmonies; the quartet’s job, together with the alto sax, is to funk the house; a non-trivial set of cuts and loops, sometimes coupled with live percussion, completes a wide spectrum of sounds which faces every day the challenge to mix harmonic research with physical movement, dance with melodies.

The band was formed in 2000, and the main task of the early periods was to blend the diverse experiences and musical backgrounds of the members in a straight and close funky style.

In summer 2001, the Urban Soul release their first self-produced CD and bring their songs on outstanding Rome stages (Il Locale, Classico Village, Big Mama, Bush, Sonica, Jailbreak, Circolo degli Artisti), and in prestigious locations all over Italy (Napoli Strit Festival, Portacomarock, Spazio Giovani 2003, Arezzo Wave Lazio 2002 and 2003, SpaghettiMusic 2002).

After recording their second mini-CD, Fun2k in summer 2002, starting from early 2003 the Urban Soul toured the new songs among pretty all the top musical scenes in Rome and underground festivals around the country. The programmatic title of the album, synthesizing the mixture of funk and new millennium dance sonorities, has been for a while the label under which the band got widely known in the Italian underground circuit.
