Solah - King
Proudly presenting her debut album on Hospital Records, SOLAH's 13-track longplayer 'King' is a delicately crafted masterpiece marking a key milestone in her career as a trailblazing singer-songwriter and vocalist. Since embarking on her journey with Hospital Records at the start of 2022, SOLAH has built impressive momentum with her first selection of singles including 'Everything Is Possible', 'Love For Me Too', 'Elevate' and 'Constant'. Now get ready to delve even deeper into the ever-expanding sound of SOLAH…
Album title track 'King' sees SOLAH showcase her signature soulful sonics as she pens heartfelt lyricism and delivers captivating harmonies. With a beautiful meaning behind the track, SOLAH states “the King in this is not me. It's dedicated to my son and started a lot of the creativity that is on this album.” With Halogenix on the production and the pair boasting an impressive string of collaborations including 'Out Of Line', 'The Night' and 'Flames', this one is yet another future classic from SOLAH as she lays down a loving tribute to her son.
Embracing her R&B influences, 'Brand New' is a vibrant bouncer featuring the production of the rapidly up and coming artist Waeys. SOLAH comes through with addictive toplines which float seamlessly above a bubbling bassline and skippy drums. If the sunshine had a soundtrack, this would be it.
On 'Glorify' SOLAH's exquisite musicality and magnetic wordplay strike again. Not afraid of a switch up, she heads into techy territories with an instrumental courtesy of the one and only Enei. Whether it's home listening or lighting up the dance floor, this deadly drum & bass cut is an indisputable anthem.
The dreamlike 'Firefly' is a gorgeously put together liquid drum & bass soother as SOLAH links up with BCee once again. Sombre piano chords and rolling drum work lay the foundations for SOLAH's angelic melodies to shine through. Becoming quite the pairing, SOLAH & BCee have worked on numerous tracks including 'Everything Is Possible' and 'Fly' on Hospital Records, 'Say It Loud' on Sigma's 'BeatsBassLife' imprint and 'Spirals' on BCee's very own Spearhead Records.
Last and certainly not least, 'Time' is a stunning album round-off featuring the heartwarming sprinkles of a gospel choir to inject even more euphoria into the already uplifting melodics and harmonies of the track. Produced by drum & bass newcomer Son, brace yourself for a spine-tingling journey through raw emotion encapsulated into a touching drum & bass ballad.
Other notable album moments include the garage-infused stepper 'Haven't You Heard' with rising duo Tease & Reset on production, and 'Something To Get Over' sees a welcomed vocal feature from Manchester's very own Slay, with Mitekiss on production duties.
It's already been a huge year for SOLAH as her voice has been dominating the drum & bass circuit and beyond worldwide. Stay tuned for what she has on the horizon as her debut album is set to step things up a notch even more for the multitalented Brighton-based artist who has already received a wide range of industry support from the likes of René LaVice, Fred V, Mollie Collins, DJ Marky, Makoto, A.M.C, UKF and more.
