With six albums under his belt, a raft of accolades and well over a decade of producing genre-splitting music, Andrew Spraggon’s work as Sola Rosa has cemented him as one of the world’s most exciting and versatile producers.
From a humble, self-released one man project, Sola Rosa has grown to a live collective of international repute. Successfully melding hip hop, reggae, jazz, latin, soul and funk, the group have never sat comfortably in one box, but with Spraggon’s guidance, that restlessness has been channelled into six succinct albums.
With all that behind them, Sola Rosa recently released their latest album, ‘Magnetics’ which has drawn together a host of familiar names and new faces to produce an album that’s more beat-driven, but as always, tinged with his trademark soul and funk.
Coreysan is a mysterious, soulful, rootsy, bass driven musician who brings an entirely new flavour to the electronic scene. Steering clear of imposed genres, Coreysan describes his music as Electronic Caribbean World Fusion.
The powerfully spirited islands of Trinidad and Tobago that is his homeland brings a Caribbean sound that is combined exquisitely with driving electronic soundscapes, soulfully earthy bass work and the hauntingly ethereal Theremin.
Raspy, soothing vocals complement the music with a storyteller approach to his lyrical compositions, reminiscent of Calypso with a universe perspective. A deep love for eastern/old world music has further influenced Coreysan's style, giving the music a deeply spiritual sheen.
