    NEW VIDEO: DREAMS

    DREAMS is the second single off of the Contraband Mixtape - a dub reggae infused hip-hop anthem (prod. by DJ DSharp) about achieving one’s aspirations against all odds. The visuals for DREAMS (directed by Woodstock) bounce along to the song's theme of creating the things we envision, and seeing obstacles as opportunities. Accompanied by a driving beat DREAMS culminates into a chorus that features vocalist Sonia Whittle, a pyramid and visuals that move to the music.Check out the video for DREAMS here:

    OUT NOW: Contraband Mixtape!

    What's good people! I'm happy to proudly share with you my latest project: Contraband Mixtape.  This record is the result of 4 years of perseverance and faith (that sometimes came and went)  to complete something I didn't know would ever "see the light of day" as they say. Now here it is, and the journey to bring this music to you feels well worth it!

    Please take a listen, and share with others ;)

    Free Download: http://s-o-u-l.bandcamp.com/album/contraband-mixtape

    Contraband Mixtape is a collection of 12 songs that feel like a full length concept album: with its unifying themes of raw emotion, plagued by social ills, haunted by love gone, and 2 timely interludes, it is able to cover a range of topics without losing continuity or the listener’s ear. From the first single “ Hand Ova Fist” a pounding track (borrowed from Brenk Sinatra’s “Tryin”) with a lyrical tale about being on the run from the police, to “DREAMS” (prod. by DJ D Sharp) dub reggae infused anthem of achieving one’s aspirations against all odds. While “All These Guns” (prod. by Woodstock) features guest appearances by Stic.man (DeadPrez), Bicasso (Living Legends) and Do D.A.T. is a powerful Gil Scott-Heron inspired track about police brutality, and the struggles that confront the Black community. Contraband Mixtape journeys further to celebrate a new day on one track, to asking provocative questions on the next. Its ultimate strength, however, is its ability to be relevant to current events, and remain entertaining all at once. sOuL from the O’s Contraband Mixtape is available now for free download for a limited time. Take a listen!
