Quakers To Release Self-Titled Album

 

Quakers is a 35 member hip hop collective, which centers around producers Fuzzface, 7-Stu-7 and Katalyst. Fuzzface is known to many as Geoff Barrow of the lauded Portishead, 7-Stu-7 is Portishead’s engineer, and Katalyst hails from Australia rounding out the trio for some massive sound. Peep the tracklisting for Quakers on the Stones Throw website.

Set out to make music they cared about, the producers sought out “genuine collaborators” to form this impressive project. Their hard hitting beats seemed to have done some serious talking with the line up these guys have scored, which includes legends and up-and-comings alike. Amongst the many talents, there are: Prince Po, Booty Brown (The Pharcyde), Dead Prez, Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson, MED, Lyric Jones, Raydar Ellis, and Buff1, just to name a few.

Take a little peek into the release with the stream for “Fitta Happier” with Guilty Simpson below! Look for the album to drop March 27.

The Space Invadas album Soul-Fi was released last month in Australia, and it already has four hits including “Original” and “Done It Again.” Space Invadas is Katalyst and Steve Spacek. Katalyst, the Sydney based producer, runs the Invada label in Australia with Portishead’s Geoff Barrow. Steve Spacek originates from London, landed in Sydney via LA, and has worked with the likes of J Dilla, Mos Def, Slum Village, Common and many more. Getting much love in the US and throughout Europe where the record is yet to be released via BBE Records, it looks like it’s gonna be a big year for Space Invadas!
