First introduced by a mutual friend, vocalist Coco O., and multi-instrumentalist/producer Robin Hannibal had immediate chemistry. “As soon as I met her I knew she was special.” Robin says of their first encounter. “She could sing the phonebook and make it sound good.” Dubbing themselves Quadron, as a respectful nod to both of their heritages as being ¼ Black, the two began making waves across various taste-making blogs. It was only a matter of time before the Danish duo was picked up by Los Angeles –based Plug Research Music and introduced to the stateside audience.
The Motown-inspired "Slippin'" quickly made Coco a darling among music critics. Soon to follow, Quadron found themselves on the soundtrack for the Oscar-Award nominated film The Kids are Alright, as well as multiple TV placements including Grey’s Anatomy.
In 2009, just a few months after Quadron began issuing their music, renowned BBC DJ Gilles Peterson found himself enamored by the sensuous track "Day", and included the song in his highly anticipated year-end special of Worldwide. Also recognizing the tremendous talent of the duo, both New York Magazine, as well as L.A’s well-respected KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez, named their self-titled album as one of the “Top Ten Best” of the year. Most notably, however, has been the tremendous support Quadron’s been given by industry heavy-hitters. Among several others, Prince and Adele have labeled themselves as fans, and Raphael Saadiq invited Quadron to be the opening act for his 2011 tour. (read more)
