Music Review Soular235 It has been an absolute pleasure to be able to write this review of Soular235 and his music, I only hope I can do him the justice he so clearly deserves! For My People is a song with a message, not just for the guys in “da hood” but one that can go worldwide. We all have our families, but this track helps us all realise we have global relatives, that earn and require respect from us all. I have managed, very easily, to fall in love with See You Smile. A beautifully crafted song (feat. Federro) that reminds me of the UK’s Craig David, but Soular235 still has his style stamped though it, and it would be so easy for Soular235 to head off into soul/R&B any time he chooses. By Hurting You is the second song I fell for hook, line and sinker. Soular235 has merged, effortlessly, two very different styles - his own and Hurt by Christina Aguilera (in itself a beautiful song that makes me cry every time). What a beautiful mix and one he should be extremely proud of! No-one could fail to hear the message of hope in Poverty To Prosperity, that goes out to all those people that think they are hard done by or down trodden by circumstance. Soular235 openly shows his Faith in this track, the message to focus on our goals and to aim for them, and that nothing is impossible to achieve. Don’t Worry is, to me, quite personal for Soular235. His struggle to be recognized in most aspects of his life. But also his rise above derision, and lack of encouragement, to get to where he wants to be, to succeed. And succeed he will! Tears Of Glory is a glorious fusion of Soular235’s rapping craft and Bhangra/Asian Underground, which is more than a nod to his ancestry. It deals with corruption, arms and chemicals. Even if the message is lost to you, the fusion is one that I personally could listen to a lot. Taken over all, Soular235 has converted me to Rap/Hip Hop, its not sugar coated commercial sentiment, but it’s the truth as he sees it. Beautiful mixes and heartfelt lyrics. What a combination! I am in awe of this guys professionalism, ethos and sheer determination to succeed. I know our station www.pheonixradio.net are proud to play his material and certainly wish him every success in his future career, which I for one am certain will fly. you have my respect. - Sarah Jones Aka DJ Wild Pony www.pheonixradio.net


Lyrically I see you standing Next to 2 Pac, and Bob Marley, what you speak of, Opened the eyes to not only myself, But The 1000’s of listeners who request your song Everyday, stay on a positive path and never lose faith in your self, I for one believe in you”. - Dj Digital B. 101.2FM (London Radio)


“I Like where he is coming from – Refreshing in Real, has a distinctly NY Which is a blessing and a curse; Strong lyricism”. - King D – King’s Country Radio Broad Casting Live.


With tracks like “For my people”, and “Don’t Push Me”, He truly epitomized the true essence of what an artist should be. His song writing ability and on screen presence is match by his ability to move a crowed on any level. - Peace, Mahmoud “Moody” Fleary Writer Tour-mag.com

The Biography of: Christian Bindah Aka Soular235

“Now my goal is to educate this world to the best of my ability through my own personal experience. Since this game is changing, in my heart I know that I can make a difference. I vow on my soul, I will never give up until the gates of heaven open up, and God himself calls me out”.

Christian Bernard Bindah, a.k.a Soular 235, was born in Queens Bridge, NY, but not long after his birth his parents relocated to the borough of stars, Brooklyn, New York. Unlike some, Soular 235 came from an encouraging family where his mother worked hard to provide the necessities he needed in life, but this life he lived would be shattered full of pain after his mother was murdered in front of him. Lost and confused, and not knowing what next to do, he became inspired by his loss, and nurtured by his Mentor George Shannon, a gifted rapper as well as a musical engineer who began teaching him music through his own lyrics.

Eventually Soular235 put his basketball dreams behind him to pursue his true calling, Rap. Performing in Canada, New Zealand, and Germany he is fully buzz worthy to take the USA by storm. To date there has been no one with the youth and capability like this in a long time with the capability to utter pure lyrical precision that cuts over a track like a hot knife thru butter.

With over 30,000 mix CDs sold, and distributed internationally it’s definitely his time to shine. Relating to the individual pain and happiness of life is what he brings to the forefront, and as a repayment, foreign countries has taken note of Soular235 and has embraced this lyrical monster “I realized that I’ve become much stronger through people’s criticism than ever, I’m basically known as a workaholic to my friends as well as my enemies”.

The game has definitely changed, and with the mic in hand, and a confident team backing him, he will continue to share his stories from over 100 mix tapes. Soular235 humbly steps into the mainstream scene with a persistence and confident swagger rarely seen in a freshman. Vowing to never give up on his fight as a new school contender, he will continue to grind until success has manifested itself as Hip Hop and only than will SOULAR 235 be truly free of his pain.
