MySpace Monday: Elisabeth Troy

Elisabeth Troy has a way poppier style than we’re used to over here at 4080, but I thought we’d go for just a tinge of diversity in the MySpace Monday posts.

Beyond the fact that she’s other London-based soulstress, I can’t find too much other information about this young lady.  If any of y’all know, please leave a comment.

Her style’s soul with a bit of a dance/electronic vibe to it.  Her track Higher Ground can be found remixed all over the internet.  House deejays in particular love to play with it, but here it is straight from her:

Sadly this will be one of the least informational MySpace Monday posts, but check her out anyways.

MySpace Monday: Baby Charles

Baby Charles is a Brighton-based soul band (fronted by Dionne Charles) who’s mighty talented, in my opinion.  Her sonorous voice is accompanied by the rest of a pretty skillful band.  They claim that their influences are from James Brown, our boy Fela Kuti, and a bunch of other Jazz and funk superstars.

They definitely tend to evoke memories of a much older act, but I like the way they try and stay current.  You can hear a lot of breakbeat style from the drummer, and the rest of the band has these little bursts of instrumental creativity.

Here’s I bet you look good on the dancefloor
