"Fans of Massive Attack and Grand Central your new favourite band is here...stunning" Muzik

"This girl could sing the telephone directory and still break your heart" DJ

"Hands down, the most powerful album I've had the pleasure of listening to this issue....anyone with a heart needs to hear these sounds. Soulful music with a breakbeat edge has never sounded so good. Buy this today." Knowledge

The Bluefoot Project are an amalgamation of urban heads based in West Yorkshire, England. Formed in 1997 and sharing a variety of musical backgrounds they set about fusing many different styles into a vocal-led, beat-driven, 21st century soulful funk with nods in the right direction to reggae, hip hop, gospel and leftfield.

In 1999 they approached newly formed Chocolate Fireguard, developed by Kava Kava singer Pat Fulgoni and at that point running as a live booking agency. They started gigging the club and festival circuit in the UK. Following an amazing set at Glastonbury Festival in 2000 it was decided that the time was right to record their debut "Observations EP' Released in 2002, it hurdled the likes of Jill Scott and Jamiroquai to the 'sureplayer' review in DJ magazine (R&B page) while top tune "Soma" found its way onto the essential Chocolate Fireguard compilation "Taster ....... Sounds From The Funky Underground Volume 2" (also available here) as well as "Best Of British" Virgin Megastores USA.

The band also feature on new compilation "Interesting Flavours" (Chocolate Fireguard) alongside tracks from artists including Bentley Rhythm Ace, Freddy Fresh, Jason Sparks, Kava Kava and features the new remix of Bluefoot Project material by the Awayteam!

Over the years, The Bluefoot Project have grown musically together and are now widely known for their unique sound which combines influences like Massive Attack, Squarepusher, Lamb, Goldie, Stevie Wonder and King Tubby.

Straight to the point and distinctly urban, they kick out a cool live soul with deep grooves over lush sample based technologies and produce clever, but airy song structures with enough space to let Rachel Modest's nebulous vocal experience shine through.

Needless to say, their debut album "Brave" has been receiving some serious critical acclaim from the UK press (see below)
and while the band work on their second album, Rachel has been notching up sessions for the likes of Jason Sparks, Kava Kava, LA Cedille and other labels like Robsoul, First In Flight and Emotif. But remember ... you heard the soul first on Chocolate Fireguard !!!
