Aquanote

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life

 

Fans of Naked Music hold a special memory of Aquanote and the music that was so much part of the romance of the label. Aquanote is the solo musical project of songwriter  Gabriel Rene. The west coast USA based jazz-soul producer kicked off his career as one half of Soulstice alongside Andy Caldwell.

 

The pair released an album on the Om label (Illusion), and René began writing songs for a solo project. He was then signed to the like-minded label Naked Music - a fusion of jazz, funk, and house. For his Aquanote debut, 2002's The Pearl, René called on an array of musician contacts he'd made around San Francisco, as well as a half-dozen female vocalists.

 

His released put the label on the map, whilst Aquanote went on to appear on other labels including OM, Nite Grooves, Street King and more.
