Sole & DJ Pain 1 | Sludge Factorie (V8 & Morbidly-O-Beats) ft. DJ Ambideckstriks | Empty Bottle September 11, 2014

Death Drive is a collision of two very distinct worlds; the scorched earth of indie rap legend, Sole, and the concrete jungles of certified platinum producer, DJ Pain 1. 'Death Drive' combines modern pop/rap aesthetics with the political edge reminiscent of hip-hop classics such as “Fear Of A Black Planet". The album is set for release on June 10th 2014, with Spin recently premiering the searing album cut "Coal" (also available on Soundcloud here). Sole & DJ Pain1 utilize the golden era hip-hop approach of a rapper and DJ without employing gimmicks or trappings of more formulaic two-turntables-and-a-mic unions. Cross-pollination between mainstream music and the underground has been happening for years, but it's unique alliance when two personalities like these lock up for a collaboration, let alone for an entire album. In a period of human history where critical music is absent from the airwaves, this is true resistance music.
