London's Solsine have been making some noise lately and they are about to get a little louder with the drop of their new cut "Proton." This is one of those tracks that blends some old school vibes into the mix and reminds me of early 90s stuff from acts like Massive Attack, 808 State, Faithless and others who pushed the boundaries back then. It sounds remarkably fresh compared to a lot of stuff that we have been hearing lately with the smooth soulful vocals of Brownie and the quick rap lyrics of Santego. Solsine are capturing that perfect future-retro sound that is bringing back some much-needed musicality into the world of electronic dance music. Even the video gives a nod to the old school. Much respect to Solsine!
More On Solsine
Glacial soundscapes set the backdrop for a noxious mix of garage basslines and melancholy vocals in this latest release from Solsine. Featuring the haunting vocals of Brownie and rapid fire delivery of rapper Santego, 'Proton' galvanises multiple contrasting elements and keeps you guessing throughout. Rising Garage stars Rare Candy return on the remix, injecting an infectious summer vibe and Moony strips it back with a driving, minimal garage construction.
Solsine formed late 2014 and, under different aliases, have performed with NME, Kiss FM, reached No1 on The Hype Machine and remixed for artists including Florence And The Machine.
The London-based duo and their close-knit group of featured artists have collectively released with Island Records, Defected and Stealth, written songs for Rudimental's recent album and supported Laura Mvula and Ella Eyre.
Aimed at the festival scene, Solsine have been likened to Chase & Status for their varied style and to Rudimental for the high energy performance they deliver on stage. In the last year, they have performed at top London venues including Proud, 93 Feet East, The Stillery, Kensington Roof Gardens and South London’s answer to Carnival, Brixton Splash.
After supporting acts such asScroobious Pip and Russell Lissack (Bloc Party) and with a return visit to Ibiza Rocks this summer 2015 is shaping up to be an exciting year.
