Black Orange Juice

London producer and Hyperdub acolyte Ossie joined together with frequent vocal collaborators Paul Black and Tilz last year to form Black Orange Juice, a group dedicated to examining the bombast and soul stylings of classic Chicago house and their own disco influences.  Having already paired up on a few previous tracks — most notably on “Supercali” and “Set the Tone” — this trio is set to release an EP’s worth of new material with 3 Started Alone (September 23rd via True Panther Sounds).  The lead single from the release is the soulful, house-indebted track “Alone.”  Meshing the neo-soul vocals of Black and Tilz, Ossie weaves a striking portrait of soul music in 2013.  Feeling like the next logical step for the genre, while still standing on its own, “Alone” drops gorgeously subtle synth flourishes and Stax-esque vocal harmonies alongside a sparkling beat that never feels ostentatious but acts as the song’s faithful guiding light.  Check out the track below.
