Cantaloop: The Yardbird, Birmingham - 13/06/2014

Birmingham based soul/funksters CANTALOOP played a rather intimate gig at The Yardbird in the city centre last night to launch their latest single 'Avalanching'. Upon arrival at the venue, the party was already in full swing with slick old skool soul classics being pumped out from a DJ and people busting their skanking moves out on the intimate dancefloor, occasionally spilling out in to the forecourt.

Cantaloop bring fusion to new single Avalanching

When Kettle introduced Cantaloop to me, I have to admit I was not quite sure what to expect as I was a little unfamiliar with their work. But with their new single Avalanching, their song certainly tumbles down with mixed emotions. For although they are a fusion of jazz and funk, it is not junk.
