RED HOT DANCE MUSIC: Solsine – “Proton” (feat. Brownie & Santego)

Remember back in the ’90’s when 2 step/garage had its big moment, arguably peaking with Craig David’s international smash “Fill Me In”?  Well, Solsine would seem to remember it, too.  (Although we suppose they could be too young to remember it.)  And, guess what, that’s not a bad thing.  Somehow, the way they blend garage and drum ‘n’ bass influences with a keen pop sensibility and a dash of dub sounds entirely refreshing.  Their current single, “Proton,” features ethereal vocals by Brownie that provide a nice contrast to Santego’s impressive rapid-fire rap skills.

Solsine have been compared to Chase & Status and their sound is no less dazzling, lighting up your serotonin receptors like crazy as you listen.  Another act they’ve been compared to: Rudimental, which isn’t surprising since they actually wrote songs on his latest album.  They’ve also been busy doing remixes, the biggest of which was for none other than Florence + The Machine.  In other words, they’re an unstoppable force and you should check them out now so you’ll recognize them when you catch their songs all over  EDM radio, which you’re sure to do as they’re already receiving considerable airplay from such trendsetter DJs as  Mike Delinquent (Kiss), Charlie Tee, TS7 (Kiss Fresh) and DJ Woody (Capital Extra)​.
