No stranger to our corner of the music industry, rapper Souleye has worked with luminaries like Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, and STS9, melding his hip-hop sensibilities with the EDM world. On May 12, the Los Angeles-based rhymesmith unleashes his latest EP, Identified Time, with one of our favorite producers of all-time, Stephan Jacobs.
Bringing west coast bass to the table, Jacobs is able to lay a foundation of snappy synths and trappy drops upon which Souleye can lay his uplifting verses. There's a juxtaposition of darkness and light in today's premiere, "Waiting For You," that is not only reflected in the production and the delivery, but even in the album's artwork, skillfully crafted by artist Rob Prior. The EP demonstrates a shift for both Souleye and Stephan Jacobs' in their artistic catalog, but three tracks aren't enough; it leaves us hungry for future collaborations.
