Sol Azul

Sol Azul

Nice & Smooth

Released: 8th August 2005 | 14 track album
Following the successful release of their worldwide smash hit 12' 'Sola Bossa' (Oscillate Recordings), SOL AZUL release their debut full-length CD. Spearheaded by Toronto musician/producer D'Arcy McGuire, singer/songwriter RUBI, with additional acoustic elements by Toronto guitarist Juan Dino Toledo. Prolific Toronto junglist crew VISIONARY (aka Marcus Visionary and Nemesis), add their unmistakable riddim's and remixing talents to the album, resulting in a brilliant collection of thumpin? breaks with sexy melodies and tasty Latin undertones. Visionary's extensive discography includes Metalheadz, Soul:r, 31 Records, Karma, Architecture, Flex and Yard, Vinyl Syndicate, Oscillate and Hustlin? Beats. Their remix of the Sol Azul track Encanto has been getting steady play for nearly a year on white-label, most notably from Dj Bailey on BBC's 1Xtra in the UK. Mista D of The Salads guests on 'Lovely Inside', and Cathy Craig of Gypsy Sol and the New Deal chimes in her trumpet magic. Anthony King of Cityfolk guests on 'Babuba Samba', and Hip Hop up-and-comer Sincere spits on 'Amor Y Fuego' and 'Encanto'. Jay Guerriere of Que Es! and Kidd Rasta and the Peacemakers thumps it out on the kit, congas and background vocals. Justin 'Swiss Army Knife' McWilliams also adds his eclectic electric guitar and vocals to many of the tracks. The album's opener, Paixão (pronounced 'Pie-SHAO') is a wicked blast of house-tempo broken-beats that is bound for dancefloors worldwide, and will be issued on vinyl July 21st/2005 with all new remixes (NICE 0024). Sol Azul are currently preparing to take their live act on the road this summer in support of the album, and are already working on a follow-up of all new material.'
"reminiscent of Zero dB and comparable in quality, which is saying something...worth more than a casual glance."
Exclaim! Magazine
"'Paixao' is a light and breezy broken beat affair while Toronto junglists Visionary provide remixes reminiscent of Drumagik's samba d&b style. As essential to your summer as a new pair of shades."
