Hip Hop and Sole
Only when caught first waking up in an airport will you gain a whimsical insight into the vibrant mind of a musician. Aside from the slight grogginess and a hilarious fascination with a deformed Siamese cat with two faces, Jeremy Sole is a really cool person with a great passion for exploring people’s reactions to music.
The entire conversation was amusing, but, most importantly, it shined light into the soul of Jeremy’s music. Speaking almost poetically about his musical collages, called musaics, one can see how his charm and grace is reflected in the cultural diversity of his pieces. Like mosaics, musiaics are taken from different music forms from around the world, and are pieced together to create a mind blowing melodious journey. This is clear by his “weekly Afroboogie ritual” at Zanzibar in Santa Monica. “Like L.A.,” he explains, “[music] is a melting pot. If you put them together and heat it up, it’s going to melt down into something.”
