This UK-based hip-hop soul act was formed by Ricky Fabulous (guitar) and DJ Modest (decks), who had been playing live sets on the London club for a number of years before a chance meeting with vocalist Kathrin deBoer prompted them to launch a more song-based project at the start of the new millennium. The trio released a number of limited edition 7-inch singles on their Hippoflex label in the mid-00s, and also recorded a cover version of T. Rexâ€™s â€˜20th Century Boyâ€™ for the If Music label. In 2006, they signed a contract with the hip Brighton-based independent Tru Thoughts. The following yearâ€™s album debut, Turntable Soul Music, was similar in approach to early 90s acts such as Morcheeba and Portishead, with the sultry vocals of deBoer floating over a bed of gentle scratching and funky guitar. Vocalist deBoer has also worked with DJ Vadim and Bonobo.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
