Free DL: Soldjasoulz 'Soulz of the Storm'
Courtesy Park Street PR.
The collision of two Norwich based lyrical giants DPF (Son Records) and Reds (Chronic Redeye) has produced some of the most exciting hip hop to come from the flatlands of the East in recent times. With a style owing as much to dancehall reggae as it does 90s hip hop, the duo have shown their versatility with a string of EPs and mixtape appearances that range from the dark and melancholic 'Soul Sellers EP' to the summer cheekiness of 'Your Mum Loves Reggae.' Their work has led to performances on the same bill as legends such as Souls of Mischief, RA the Rugged Man, Task Force, Klashnekoff , Rodney P, Black Twang and Phi Life Cypher to name a few.
This latest offering is another display of the explosive outcome when DPF's incredible flow and effortless delivery combine with the gritty wordplay and deep imagery from Reds - A slice of hardcore hip hop packed full of quotable bars that bangs from front to back. This full length release cements the name Soldjasoulz as true underground representatives and shows once again why both emcees have achieved critical acclaim in their own right, with DPF's 2008 solo album reaching the HHC list of top releases for that year and the same publication calling Reds ''the real deal.''
Guest productions on 'Soulz of the Storm' come courtesy of the one and only Tricksta as well as long time collaborator DJ I.C from the Hoodlem camp, however the bulk of production this time round is handled by Reds. His return to the boards sees him serving up his own brand of deliberately stripped down, yet infectious riddims based around hypnotic synths that set the tone perfectly for the lyricists to do their thing. Underground U.S legend Main Flow even shows up to bless a Reds production with a killer verse for the banger 'Night Breed,' a testament to the grind these cats are on. Soldjasoulz are running things in their own lane with a unique style, bags of talent and a healthy amount of cynicism for pop rap industry fakers. This is some heavyweight music, don't sleep...
