The “it” factor is something all bands long for but few attain. Having “it” boils down to a handful of essential conditions, including setting, timing, and, most importantly, chemistry. If you want to know what “it” sounds like, take a listen to One Block Radius. The Pop/R&B/Hip-hop three piece from Chico, California was meant to make music together. Maybe it’s the way their voices harmonize, or the unique approach they’ve taken to genre-blending. Whatever it is, it works. Their remix of their new single, You Got Me, is about making it to the top without forgetting about those who were with you at the bottom. The remix doesn’t stray too far from the original, except for the addition of verses from guests Baby Bash and Fabolous. The track will be featured on their self-titled sophomore album, out September 16. If you need some OBR to tide you over until then, check out their interview with DJBooth early next month.
