Sol's been makin' waves since well before What's Good first stumbled upon him on a late-night Soundcloud-spiral - upon which we immediately signed him up to two of our biggest gigs of last year: the debut Kingsland Block Party, and our inaugural The Goods.
2016 has only been bigger. Only two weeks ago, he shattered the mainstream with an unprecedented cloud rap interpretation of hip-hop heavyweight Future's 'Rich Sex'. A busy mind has already driven Sole to produce the musical collab and visuals of a track with neighbourhood fam, Debris.
The two Grey Lynn boys met when they lived across the road from each other, dabbling in mutual musical interests on the regular. Sparks resonated when Liam (Debris) entered Sol's beat lab and asked him to whip something up. That very evening, Liam got writing, Sol on the electronics, and Porticom was the result.
The track infuses feel good hip hop with a Latin swing, culminating in an opiated video shot at an abandoned house by mates OZMOBB. The boys are depicted in their natural state; drinking beers, smoking spliffs, and in Sol's on words, "Just generally being scumbags."
As the summer of production drew on, Sol and Liam continued to write raps and toss beats across their porches - before things got a little too lit and Liam's house literally burnt down. We've been told to expect more from the pair over the coming months, despite the process having slowed a tad with the duo now living fifteen minutes walk away from each other.
