Soso presents his third self-produced release, tenth street and Clarence. Soso locates his work in a cold and desolate place – the middle of nowhere. An artist,writer and beatsmith from Saskatchewan, Canada, his songs are unapologetic and decidedly home-made.
Cutting his production teeth on a vintage Akai S900 sampler, Soso has been knockingout distinctive beats with that low end thump since the mid 90’s. Lifting old drums and melodic bits from his expansive (and expanding) vinyl collection, Soso has been chopping and assembling beats, developing his unique sound and earning the respectof the independent hip hop community.
In 1999, soso established Clothes Horse Records as a vehicle to develop and disseminate his unique musical vision. A number of successful releases followed and in 2002, soso dropped birthday songs — Birthday songs asserted itself as one the finest productions of the year, capturing a nomination for Outstanding Rap / Hip Hop Recording at the 2003 Western Canadian Music Awards.
