Grapefruit and Amuka Make a Perfect Musical Fruit Salad

Grapefruit Sound Lab is NJ’s Robert Cotnoir. The NY native is a fan of virtually all styles of music, from classical to hard rock to funk and everything in between. Fueled by his love of music and desire to create, Cotnoir has honed his own sound as an electronic producer that blends sounds and styles together to create catchy and unique tracks.In his latest single, he enlists Sheila Brody aka Amuka. A P-Funk alum and members of the Brides of Funkenstein, Amuka has worked with the likes of Public Enemy, Peter Rauhofer, and John Mellencamp, among others. Her soaring vocals combine with Cotnoir’s musical lansdcape to create a fun and funky singalong pop track that’ll have even the most cynical toes a’tappin.

Grapefruit Sound Lab has a distinct sound reminiscent of acts like New Mexico’s The Echoing Green, renowned DJ BT, and the always enthralling Massive Attack – yet the sound is still its own. While not the first collaboration with Amuka, this may be the best. “Love Cards” has driving bass, soaring vocals, and an emotional core. As a teaser to the upcoming album from GSL, this will surely wet one’s proverbial whistle.

So, sit back and enjoy the music video for the “Love Cards”… and if you’re so inclined, pre-order the album on vinyl, due out in December!

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
