"Nosolo "A New Sound Is Forged""

Nosolo – ‘Aerosol Prankster’



Arising from the San Francisco Bay area, that infamous hotbed of creativity from freaks of all fashion, flavor and form; five piece outfit Nosolo, release this free to all download five demo track EP.

Working together for the past ten years, the band exist to play and record live music, always delivering a highly contagious, body rocking sonic experience that is embraced by both clubs and festivals alike. A unique sound has been developed, forged from their combined experience and influences, based on the live and electronic music scenes of Johannesburg, London, New York and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Although reminiscent of 1990’s trip-hop the alchemical melding of drums and bass with intense psychedelic guitar alongside skills at the wheels of steel as sharp as a blade and a consciously intelligent, funky lyrical flow, move things into a different dimension.

This international ensemble not only draws together their individual cultures but also deftly crisscross’s through the borders of musical genre, stepping into styles from disco to dub and heavy metal, to a well seasoned crock of dance music expressions and strange electronica. Most definitely experimental, yet unpretentious; this highly listenable and deeply danceable mash-up, mixed by Jonah Sharp of the sumptuously lovely acid and ambient Space Time label, will lovingly place you on a groove bound for the far reaches of the cosmos. - Stoner Magazine


"CD Baby Says "Best I've ever Heard""



Mezmetic to be featured on CDbaby.com!!! Solid Review!!! ?Current mood: excited ?Category: Music
We're REALLY picky about what goes on the front?page. We get about?150 new albums a DAY coming in here now, (about?150,000 total), and?yours is one of the best I've ever heard.??THE DATE TO BE POSTED (mark it down somewhere)?Friday, May 25th 2007??OUR REVIEW?This Bay Area producer has created a hip hop hybrid?that is as?smoothly flowing as it is technically adept. With?assistance from a?trio of vocalists, Mezmetic dips into a deep array?of jazz, dub, soul,?R&B and hip hop, all with stellar control of the?instrumentation.?Starting with a base of distinct MPC beats, the?tracks are layered?with solid bass lines, slinking keys, understated?guitars, and well?placed turntable work, yielding a sound that is?warm, welcomely?complex, and tough to categorically classify. The?lyrically potent?MC's featured on the more straightforward hip hop?tracks do justice to?the solidity of the beats, laying down verses that?wisely match the?intricacy of the production. The same can be said?for tracks like?"Soul Arrival," where the soul-soaked female vocals?blend with the?keys to give a real depth to the song. If you ever?feel like the men?behind the boards don't get the props they deserve,?check this out and?witness a producer who has put in some real work.??-CDbaby.com
