After impressing the world with the well received ‘Soul Sellers EP’ back in October of last year, the superb sounds of Soldjasoulz returns! For those that have been sleeping under a stone or maybe have been out the game for a minute, let us re-introduce you to the real and rugged undertones of Soldjasoulz a two man Hip-Hop crew from East Anglia consisting of DPF of Son Records and Reds from Chronic Redeye. Their sound combines the raw real Hip-Hop sound of UK Rap with influences from dub, reggae, funk and a special ingredient of uniqueness that only they seem to have.
‘Your Mum Loves Reggae’ is a five track EP that takes the listener on an audio journey through roots, dancehall and underground hip hop with enough low-end thump and heavy wordplay to keep any summertime jam session bubbling. The EP features a guest verse from Franko Fraize who recently impressed the UK urban scene with his ‘140 Show EP’, while production is handled by Soldjasoulz themselves alongside the likes of the talented duo DJ IC & TBone, as well as UK Runnings & Rago front man Tricksta.
‘Your Mum Loves Reggae’ is an EP that is definitely something you are going to need on your iPod this summer. Hosted by the wrong uncle to have in your party ‘Uncle Joe’, Soldjasoulz bring a combination of flavours in their own original style and let the world know a little known fact about life in East Anglia. mums really do love reggae!!!!

TonyAs describes himself as an artist that has evolved over time, inspired by many and has now ultimately come into his own. The art started as a musician- Rapper turned Singer but TonyAs has also embraced his other passion- writing (as a song writing and feature writer). Formerly known as theSaint- TonyAs has taken it one step further opting to strip it bare, go back to basics, whereas theSaint was a straight talking hiphop artist, TonyAs the musician has embraced other influences and as well as rapping- also sings, adding another dimension to his works.
As a musician the style is charismatic, easy listening emotional type music, in his own words ‘he wants people listening to be able to feel what he’s saying- to empathise, whether having experienced it or witnessed the content of his verses’. Sound wise it’s fundamentally hiphop- though his evolution as an artist has lead to incorporations of Reggae, Soul, Funk and other such genres. Lyrics are still his forte if you like, and he prides himself on being a vivid and lyricist.
2011 promises to be an interesting year, the SexDrugsPoetry brand grows from strength to strength, there’s the music, the ‘Y Is It’ articles and videos that TonyAs himself produces. 2011 will see the release of his ‘Introducing TonyAs’ project. Singles to look out for ‘Back into my groove’, ‘Real money’ and ‘Loving it’.
01 – Back Into My Groove
02 – Lovin It
03 – Real Money (Radio Version)
