Sol.iLLaquists Of Sound — Look

Discovered by firebrand rapper Sage Francis, the Sol.iLLaquists’ combustible live presence prompted the world renowned MC to take them along on two global tours. Steered by machine-gunning MC and Vocal Polyrhythmatician Swamburger, The Sol.iLLaquists achieve lift-off with the fervent virtuosity of MPC (Midi Production Center) whiz DiViNCi. Yet the urgency of this group’s approach is keenly tempered with the harmonic vibrance of Alexandrah’s soulful vocals and the spoken contemplation of Tonya Combs.

Fusing brutally honest messages with a multi-dimensional sound, As If We Existed — built with irrepressible positivity, chest-filling spirit, and body-throbbing rhythm — is a public service announcement with spit. Launched with “The Pledge of Resonance,” a poetic musing that links personal action, sound, and truth, S.O.S. focuses in on specific issues, including cultural revolution (“Black Guy Peace”), ethnic alcoholism (“Property & Malt Liquor”) and personal wellness (“Our 2 Cents”).

A thinking person’s brand of the genre — imagine Digable Planets or The Fugees with greater dynamics and a bigger chip on their shoulders — Sol.iLLaquists of Sound look to change the world one listener at a time. Leaving music lovers well-grooved, duly enlightened and — quite possibly — inspired, The Sol.iLLaquists are a family based on likeness of mind and because of it are, in many ways, more functional than any unit based on bloodline alone.
