“Souls Rest delivers hip hop that hits you with distinctiveness and innovation…”
(Steve Hayes – Cross Rhythms UK)
Established in 2003 in Liverpool, England, Souls Rest gained a reputation for creating dynamic and inventive hip hop music in both live and studio settings. Comprised of emcee ‘The Rawface’ and DJ ‘Philamonic’, Souls Rest recently emigrated to Canada setting up a recording studio and working on the creation of new music for an EP (’Two Minutes”) which was released in November 2009.
Souls Rest originally began as a 5 piece live band, playing at small underground nights in Liverpool before moving to larger events across the UK. Over time the group changed shape, culminating in a sharper more focused sound based around the traditional hip hop elements of the DJ and the Emcee. Souls Rest have three previous CD releases: 2003’s ‘Hip Hop Fun for all the Family’, 2004’s ‘Extended Wordplay’ and a self titled EP released in 2006. Having played at venues ranging from grubby clubs to large-scale festival stages, Souls Rest bring with them over six years of live performance experience.
Souls Rest’s original sound is a result of two distinctly different approaches to music production. ‘Philamonic’ began DJing by spinning house and then drum and bass records, before moving on to the art of turntablism and hip hop music; while ‘The Rawface’ was heavily into London’s UK Garage scene before maturing into a hip hop MC. This eclectic background as well as a love of all genres of music (with the exception of country obviously) has developed within Souls Rest a passion not only for the music they create but also for those that hear it.
Souls Rest focus upon using their diverse musical influences to infuse this culture with positively proactive sounds and are excited to bring to Canada their inspiring and innovative hip hop music.
You will find rest for your soul.”
