Federation vs Solomonic cds are in stores now!
Here is our first review from turntablelab.com
Philly's Solomonic Sound and NY's Federation meet in an all exclusive, all dubplate, all specials mix! They take things pretty much head to head, trading off dubplates from all the biggest artists, with special versions of some absolutely monster tunes. The cd is arranged by riddim, so you get stuff like a John Holt dub of "Police In Helicopter," followed by no less than 3 Capleton vocals over the same riddim. Shit gets real serious when they start heading into things like the Real Rock, Far East and Stalag and it's capped with a tune fi tune segment featuring insane versions of Sugar Minott's "Never Give Up," Sizzla's "Solid As A Rock," Buju's "Murderer" and much more. Partial artist list: Damian Marley (on the Truths And Rights riddim), Johnny Osbourne, Richie Spice, Bounty Killer, Sanchez, Marlon Asher, Anthony B, Chuck Fender, Yami Bolo (killer version of "Put Down The Weapon"), Beres Hammond, Luciano, Turbulence, etc. Extra points for the super cool throwback cover- recommended.
FEDERATION meets SOLOMONIC inna dubplate style
"FEDERATION meets SOLOMONIC inna dubplate style" is a ground-breaking new mix cd from two powerhouses in the dancehall/reggae world. FEDERATION, known for their incredible collaborations with VYBZ KARTEL, and "ROOTS, REALITY, & CULTURE" series, get together for the first time ever with good friends SOLOMONIC SOUND, known worldwide for their culture vibes and imprint, Worship Recordings. Together, on this cd, the two sound systems take the term "clash" two another level. Studio-mixed, it is a dubplate extravaganza made up 100% of exclusive "specials" from artists like Sizzla, Capleton, Beres Hammond, Luciano, Anthony B, Richie Spice, Bounty Killer, Buju Banton, and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, just to name a few! Non-stop vibes from beginning to end, "FEDERATION meets SOLOMONIC inna dubplate style" is guaranteed niceness from start to finish with over 60 classic dubplates from the two big sounds, here for the first time ever, on one big cd.
FEDERATION, based out of New York and Philly has long been known for bringing a unique sound and crazy creativity to everything they do. Not only have they been pioneers of the mix cd scene, but FEDERATION was also responsible for some of the biggest remixes of the last couple of years... Beyonce & Baby Cham (Crazy in Love)... Usher & Baby Cham (Yeah)... Jay-z & Bounty Killer (p.s.a.b.k. 2004)... Pharell, Jay-z, Vybz Kartel & Wayne Marshall (frontin' dancehall remix). Representing Philly, Kenny Meez and Curly Locks wave the flag for FEDERATION at their numerous weekly parties and bring pure vibes to the city of brotherly love. Max Glazer represents New York for the crew while traveling world wide bringing the Federation Sound to new audiences almost daily. Max is currently touring with Def Jam recording artist RIHANNA, as well as dancehall superstar BABY CHAM. From Philly to New York to London to Japan to Germany to Barbados to Jamaica, FEDERATION has been there, spreading the vibes... all over the world.
SOLOMONIC, currently based out of Philly, was formed by Rob Paine and Zacharijah Eberz in 1998. Both internationally known djs in their own right, Rob was in Philly, while Zack had Burlington, Vermont on lock alongside selector Jahson. In 2001, when Zack moved back to Philly, SOLOMONIC had already been voicing dubs for several years. Soon Papa Fz joined the crew, and most recently selector Roots has stepped up. At full strength, SOLOMONIC has proven to be one of the wickedest culture sounds in the world. With nuff weekly parties in Philly (Fridays at Filo's... 6 years and counting!), Honolulu, Burlington, and constant worldwide touring, the crew brings the conscious vibes as only they can. Not just a collective of djs, Solomonic also runs a top notch sound system used at many Philly area music events, a world class recording studio, as well as their own label. Look for their original riddims and a full length mix album featuring Philadelphia's top ranking artist, EL FECO B, in the near future.
