MoQuannum: Soul to Sole, ist ein HipHop-Kollektiv von gleichgesinnten DJs, Rappern und Produzenten. Guillermo Chiapa der zuletzt dazu beigetragen hatte, das geniale MashUp-Projekt „Yasiin Gaye“ von Amerigo Gazaway aus dem Jahr 2014, mit an den Start zu bringen, sieht sich weniger als Musiker sondern mehr als Künstler und so ist auch The Goodwill Projects, dass sich dem weltberühmten Soul-Label Motown widmet, eine wundervolles Remix-Mashup-Album geworden:

Soul To Sole, is a kindred fusion of past and present. To say the least, Motown records echo some of the greatest musicians and instrumental arrangements in musical history. Quannum – originally known as Solesides – is a like minded collection of artists that came together to pool their ideas and energy into something prolific and independent in contemporary music.”
