The Soulquarians

[youtube id=”E3UkN62x98k”] The Soulquarians were a ’90s collective that included Questlove, D’Angelo, J. Dilla, Erykah Badu, James Poyser and Common. Pitchfork put together a video to give an overview of their work and impact. Their sessions produced D’Angelo’s Voodoo, Common’s Like Water For Chocolate and The Roots’ Things Fall Apart. Q-Tip, Raphael Saadiq and DJ Premier are some of the artists who made music with them in Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios. Their time as a collective ended after a 2000 story in Vibe magazine offended some artists by suggesting that they were under Questlove’s rule.
