SoulRocca feat. J-Live ‘Real Recognize Real’

SoulRocca feat. J-Live ‘Real Recognize Real’

For the first single ‘Real Recognize Real’ off the forthcoming SoulRocca ‘In Good Company’ album, the German production trio teamed up with legendary J-Live from New York.

J-Live achieved his cult status in the Rap community through numerous albums over the past twenty years. 50% Soulbrotha + 50% Roccwell = 100% SoulRocca. ‘In Good Company’ by SoulRocca is a collaboration album by the Hamburg veterans Boogiedown Base and 12 Finger Dan, who have operated as Soulbrotha for many years, and the Munich producer Roccwell. Boogiedown Base has been a producer and remixer since 1993. In 2005 he met DJ 12 Finger Dan to form the production duo Soulbrotha. The two mainly produced for and with American artists such as Sadat X, DJ Premier, Large Professor, Big Shug, Blaq Poet, Masta Ace, Beneficience, Cella Dwellas, Edo.G and El Da Sensei. Soulbrotha came in contact with the producer Roccwell from Munich by chance. Through the common love for soul samples, hard drums, the clanking of the E-MU SP-1200, dope raps and spectacular cuts, the idea of a collabo-album came up. ‘In Good Company’ is a celebration of the classic Boom Bap sound with top-class features. Among others, the New York cult rapper J-Live was won for the first single ‘Real Recognize Real’. Q Ball & Curt Cazal aka QnC from the legendary D&D Studios in New York show on ‘Classic Position’ why they are still relevant after more than 20 years in the game and the Boston MC M-Dot proves on ‘Toil’ why there is a hype around his person. The album is a homage to the many Rap classics of the last three decades but always remains fresh thanks to the contributions of talented artists such as J57, Dro Pesci, Wildelux, Resolute or Empulse. ‘In Good Company’ will release on November 25th through Beat Art Department/Compost Records on all major digital platforms and vinyl.
