1. Product Details

Emerging from the grey-green Pacific Northwest Solar Power: New Sounds in Seattle Hip-Hop collects the best and brightest tracks from Seattles current hip-hop underground. This is music that thrives in the shadows in basements abandoned warehouses and undiscovered realms where mixtapes and mics are passed like spliffs. Local media has been positive: The Stranger declared that Solar Power shines a light on Seattle hip-hops experimental brilliance. Much like a sunbreak crashing through the gloom this record illuminates a wildly diverse spectrum of talented of-the-moment MCs and producers. These 14 cuts alternately build upon and refute the idiosyncratic foundations laid by Shabazz Palaces Blue Scholars Macklemore and Sir Mix-A-Lot. Seven of these songs are from the queens of the current scene including a short dense firework from THEESatisfactions Stas Thee Boss DoNormaals haunting nouveau trip-hop and G-Funk inspired R&B from Gifted Gab. Jarv Dees town classic I Just Wanna is the requisite Washington state weed anthem while Dave Bs Kandi masterfully counterpoints smouldering guitars with vocal acrobatics. Wrapped inside a radiant reflective sun painted by Seattle artist Ari Glass youll find a honey-yellow disc musical DNA a slick vinyl engine: This is solar power. Seattle rain-damp and stir-crazy sequestered and inventive generates its own seductive energy especially when it comes to music. Drop the needle on any song here and youll hear a tale untold an equation without a solution an anthem in search of a nation thats ready to fight fuck or dance. This album is an instant artifact capturing in permanent wax some of the ephemeral energy and angst of this auspicious confounding moment in time. Recently proclaimed as the best new music currently coming out of America by Tokyos hip-hop mecca Manhattan Records Solar Power is the freshest hip-hop youll hear all year. Play it loud Soak up this sunbreak music. Solar Power gives Seattle hip-hop its place in the sun. -Seattle Weekly
