Solace Family makes big moves with their newest release, a compilation album titled “Augmentation“. It is filled with heavy bass frequencies from a wildly talented roster of artists. This collective has been making waves, with their series of events dubbed “Nexus” out of Indianapolis, stacked record label, and massive festival last year “Electric Wave” which featured headliners MeSo, Freddy Todd, G-Space, and Smoakland. At the helm of operations is Ujuu holding it down, steering this ship straight toward success.
The collection begins with a softer vibe from Adiios before the wonky wobbles kick in on his track “Smoke Dogg“. Buzz Junior and Yxnwr keep the energy up with “Name Drop“; Buzz came out the gate swinging in 2023, with an EP on Gravitas Recordings and a show announcement with Luzcid in March. Fluent‘s “Whisper” marches along at a confident stride, with the simplicity of a whisper but the impact of a ton of bricks.
A familiar name to the blog, jordnmoody goes for the headshot with “Shottas“, a grimey symphony of bassy goodness. He will be returning to the Untz Festival this year for his second year in a row and we can guarantee that won’t be a set to miss. RYNS, a pillar of Solace Fam, changes things up a bit with some silky smooth drum and bass that is injected with a heavy dose of synths in “funfunfun“. The energy is strong with this one! Also, don’t sleep on the collab EP from RYNS and Ujuu, released last year on SSKWAN — you can read our thoughts on that project here!
Another friendly name to HIHF is Saint Miller, he was part of our guest mix series last summer and you can listen to his contribution here! His effort “Concentrate” will certainly get your neurons firing; it’s heavy hitting from beginning to end and really packs a punch. Listeners can find what they’re looking for with Ujuu’s “Searching“. This one creates a cinematic soundscape before submerging you into a wobbly wonderland. We wrap things up with “Intentions” from VISKUS featuring Skvlez who deliver a more melodic tune, filled with stylistic glitters and intricacies that give this one a complex yet lustrous vibe.
Honorable mention to the other talented artists on this massive work: SAAS, Sushi Mane, STERFRY, & Squirrely Bass all produced incredible tracks that cannot go without note. There’s no question that Solace Family is going for the moonshot with these artists, and we can confirm they have certainly blasted off to space with this hefty work!
