So Solid Crew – Since U Went Away ft. Megaman, Lisa Maffia & Romeo

Guess who’s back?!

I bought you the exclusive news that they were making a comeback and here it is, England’s finest collective are back by public demand with their first offering, Since U Went Away:

Featuring Megaman, Lisa Maffia and Romeo, This is the first release from the new So Solid Crew album, a more mature sounding So Solid, after speaking to Megaman he mentioned this being a personal album, he wanted to answer the fan’s questions and deliver something they will appreciate, something they have been asking for. Seems like they are on the right track, I like this, Megaman still has the lyrical ability that many looked over as well as an on point flow, First Lady, Lisa Maffia’s vocals are sounding stronger than ever, then the ladies favourite..Romeo with a nice verse, they all sound good and it looks promising for the So Solid crew upon their much awaited return.

The video is a good look, it looks fun more than anything, I am gutted that I could not go to the shoot due to prior commitments but it is balanced with the joy to see the outcome of the video being a success along with the song itself, featuring cameos from Comedians Kojo and Kevin J, as well as members of both So Solid Crew and D-Fam.

Despite their success, they remain humble and I cannot help but to feel proud for all they have acheived and will continue to do so, they have opened many doors and elevated the scene to bigger heights.

Look out for more from the So Solid Crew.

Wise words of wisdom with Megaman (So Solid)

With artists like Dizzee Rascal, Tinchy Stryder, Wiley and Chipmunk dominating the charts, the urban scenes are buzzing as more doors are opened, at the same time I think people should understand the originators, the pioneers who first turned that door handle, such as More Fire and before that, probably the biggest urban movement in the UK, the So Solid Crew.

During a recent video shoot, I had a chat with Megaman, who humble as ever explained his dream, desire and dedication, a man who has accomplished so much in terms of music and business, I felt it was only right that we share more wise words of wisdom from the So Solid captain himself (Along with Ozzie B).

G – FrSH – Afar ft. Tinie Tempah & Deniro from D-Fam (Official Video)

Recently reviewed this track, I highlighted the unique factor that it possesses and the video just emphasizes my point even more, as the video itself is a quality production.

Directed by none other than Jak Frsh, one of the best directors in the country (his portfolio of previous work proves it). The quality is reminiscent of the mainstream standard videos from the So Solid Crew, this however takes things to a higher platform, with the POV (point of view) style sequences, the special effects compliment the visuals as the synths do for the audio. I like the blend of styles within, as it keeps you watching, almost as if you’re there with them. The best thing about this video is that it compliments the song extremely well, just like G-FrSH raises the standard from his last single (Do It), so does this video. With cameos from heavyweights such as Wretch 32 and Scorcher, both G and Tinie Tempah’s performances and the quality of the video itself, Afar should help FrSH entertainment go even higher as they set a new standard.

Fáris Rating:
9/10

“Cos She Knows I’m That Guy, She Knows Who I Are, I’m Sippin’ On My Drink And I’m Just Watchin’ from Afar, I Watch Her While She Laughs, I Watch Her When She Dance, The DJs Playin’ Funky, But Shes Got Me In A Trance, She Knows I Can’t Tech (Take) – No, No..For An Answer..”

D-Fam – You’re My Baby

When the heart of the UK’s biggest urban collective introduces a group or artist, everyone has to take note. so when So Solid Crew’s Megaman introduced us to D-Fam, a collective of young talented rappers and singers, everyone’s ears were open and the addictive single that was Whatever You Want, really had their buzz growing.

09 and they have returned with ‘You’re My Baby‘, featuring a more mature ‘Taj’ and ‘Castro’ leading the vocals, new member ‘Junks’ and ‘Jemmel’ (who vocally reminds me of a young Babyface) serenading the ladies with the hook. The track itself is easy to listen to, it’s far from gritty and the explicit urban culture that the genre gets stereotyped with yet possesses that street element with the presence of Taj (I still think we have not heard the best of him yet) and a slick looking Castro. Castro is someone to watch not just in front of the camera, he reminds me of when Megaman was fresh on the scene, more than just one of the rappers, a young entrepreneur out to fulfill ambitions, hopefully he and his collective D-Fam can match and even surpass the success and create their own legacy, with the guys all in their early 20’s, time is definitely on their side.
