Biography

The SolaZul project is spearheaded by Toronto musician/producer D’Arcy McGuire, working closely alongside singer/songwriter RUBI, who adds a sultry mashup of English, Spanish and Brazilian-Portuguese vocals to the group. Additional acoustic elements are rounded out by Toronto guitarist Juan Dino Toledo.

Prolific Toronto junglist crew VISIONARY (aka Marcus Visionary and Nemesis), add their unmistakable riddim’s and remixing talents to the group, resulting in a brilliant collection of thumpin’ breaks with tasty Latin undertones. Visionary’s extensive discography boasts releases on top UK labels such as Metalheadz, Soul:r, 31 Records, Karma, Architecture , Flex and Yard, as well as Toronto labels On Point, Vinyl Syndicate, Oscillate and Hustlin’ Beats. Their remix of the SolaZul track Encanto had been getting steady play for nearly a year on white-label before release, most notably from DJ Bailey on BBC’s 1Xtra in the UK.

What inspired you to make this record?
The song ‘Remember’ got it started. It was like another color came out of the sound with Adam on Vox and Kai on the Horns and it was ON after that. Why does Rubi mash up different languages in each song?
Because she likes to, so much that I asked her if she’d sing the song ‘Jamais’ in French, she graciously agreed and nailed it!
Who are the guests on the album and what is interesting about each one? LOTS of guests it seems…
