Kentish Town (UK) based OthaSoul just released their newest album (today), #TheRemedy, and it caught our attention the moment we hit play. The homies over at OkayPlayer mentioned previously OthaSoul was, “arguably the smoothest-sounding British rap collective [they’ve] heard in recent memory”. That’s a bold statement, but it certainly has it’s credibility.
We peeped the entire project this morning, over a cold brew and a light spliff. #TheRemedy is an eclectic 14-track collection of polished beat work, live instrumentation and zealous lyricism. Living at the intersection of hip-hop and soul, OthaSoul provides refreshing originality and a level of class that is rare in the realm of hip-hop. #TheRemedy showcases their tremendous range as a group of rappers, musicians and producers.
Our team favorite off the project, “Let It Breathe” (ft. Knytro), is a movie. Groovy bass lines compliment mellow percussion and pulsating background synths, while the crew of talented MCs take turns coasting on that buttery AF beat. “Let It Breathe” is our Knock of The Day and #TheRemedy is our Cop of The Day.
