Multi-disciplinary New Orleans brass outfit The Soul Rebels have released a pair of never-before-heard bonus tracks from their most recent album, 2019’s Poetry In Motion, mixed with “360 Reality Audio” technology.
The first, “Groove Train”, a smooth, smoky slab of baby-making R&B, features lead vocals from fellow NOLA local Nigel Hall (Lettuce). The second, an instrumental called “Musica”, is a Latin jazz odyssey guided by lauded trumpeter/composer Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah.
According to a press release, 360 Reality Audio is “an immersive music experience that uses Sony‘s object-based 360 Spatial Sound technologies. Individual sounds such as vocals, chorus, piano, guitar, bass and even sounds of the live audience can be placed in a 360 spherical sound field, giving artists and creators a new way to express their creativity.”
“We are so excited to share these new songs with our fans in Sony’s 360 Reality Audio,” The Soul Rebels said in a statement. “We’re committed to delivering the best listening experience and spatial audio allows us to provide a truly live sound experience to our fans.”
Throw on some good headphones and listen to The Soul Rebels’ new 360 Reality Audio singles, “Groove Train” featuring Nigel Hall and “Musica” featuring Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, via the Spotify player below.
