about

"Sole & DJ Pain 1 re-invented political rap" - SF Weekly
" an engaging project that weaves through self-reflection, philosophy and existentialism with an anarchist perspective " - Truthout
"Indie Rap Legend" - Spin

'Death Drive' is a collision of two very distinct worlds; the scorched earth of indie rap legend, Sole, and the concrete jungles of certified platinum producer, DJ Pain1. 'Death Drive' combines modern pop/rap aesthetics with the political edge reminiscent of hip-hop classics such as “Fear Of A Black Planet". Sole & DJ Pain1 utilize the golden era hip-hop approach of a rapper and DJ without employing gimmicks or rap cliches typical with more formulaic two-turntables-and-a-mic unions. Cross-pollination between mainstream music and the underground has been happening for years, but anything that bubbles up is always devoid of substance. Death Drive is a political rap album executed in a way that eschews the rapper persona of savior/prophet and speaks from the riot line. In a period of human history where critical music is absent from the airwaves, this is true resistance music.
