Karolina-Release Me (prod. by Sabbo & Kuti)

Karolina was asked to do a cover version to this song originally by Shalom Hanoch.It was from a project of new cover versions to His 83' album "White Wedding".
Me and Kuti had only a few days to produce it because there was a lot of pressure from the label to finish it.Obviously it took more than a year for them to actually release it...
Truth is,We really hated the original version and had no idea why this was considered a classic.

We decided to take the song and flip so instead of this macho rock we made it into a feminine statement ( I guess....)

Everything was recorded and mixed at my place aka Maze Studio.It features horns from Shlomi Alon and Sefi Tzizling
of Hadag Nachash and Funknstein fame.
It also features Moshe Levi on fender rhodes who also played on the original version.

Balkan Beat Box-Digital Monkey (Soulico Remix)

You probably all know BBB by now,they mix things up with dub and electronics, juxtaposed with ancient Moroccan and Mediterranean melodies,and they are one of the best live acts you can get !

BBB are releasing a remix album called Nu Made and Soulico were asked by the JDub people (we are on the same label) to remix this tune.

We play it a lot on our parties and it always set the crowd on fire!

A Blast From The Past : Soulico's first mixtape (Jan 2001)

Eyal Rob finally found some time to clean his house and accidentally discovered this forgotten mixtape from January 2001.
At that time we used to throw parties in the deep basements under Dizengoff Center and on the mythical underground club,Dinamo Dvash. We used to call our parties Soulico Croov (we still don't know why...)
Back than we had DJ alarm as a Soulico member.He's the one on the decks on this mix.
This was mixed live from our vinyl collection and features "Live Mashups" Done the oldskoool way.

As you can hear,the mixtape represents what we used to spin back than,We were always into good times for the good girls music.Soulico are probably the the first DJ crew to mix Hip-Hop,Reggae and Funk in Israel.
We are the only crew who survived these long years and still doin' it.

This Mixtape also features a funny song we made for our first party.It's called Soulico Anthem with all of us "Rocking" the mic... :)

Soulico are just putting the finishing touches on our forthcoming album Exotic On The Speaker to be released soon by Jdub Records. More details (and music) coming soon.

Malca-The Good Days

Me and Kuti first heard Malca while we were in Jamaica. At that time we were mostly into recording and producing reggae and dancehall tunes and riddims. Piloni of Shabak Sameh played us a tape with Malca's songs and asked us if we would like to produce her album once we return to Israel.
We were very impressed with the sincerity in her voice and in her songs.

It took us few more months to finally start this album and we were exited to do it.
We did most of the production and recording at my studio.

The album was released by NMC and was accompanied by a single and a video.Later on they released another single and I don't even have a copy...NMC didn't support it any more. I don't think they ever believed in it in the first place. It did get some support from the radio and got pretty good reviews,
but I don't think this album ever really had a chance...Malca is not the "pushing" type at all.She never really wanted to be famous at all...

That's why I'll be posting the entire album,one song per month.
Here's the first song.

OTG & Elparvar-Ding Dong (Sabbo's Oldskool Remix)

Ortega and Elparvar did this song like three years ago.It was never released officially. I grabbed the acapella from
Crack Attack forum and put it on a very basic,very oldskool beat I made (very quickly !)
I just thought this beat gonna fit well since that the song is about keeping it real and against commercial hip-hop.
