While the ‘mecca’ of Canadian rap has honed itself in Toronto, the talent that subsides just outside of it reveals just as much talent – and this time, it comes in the form of Mississauga via London, ON, artist, The Goodz.
Layering elements taken from several genres, including rock & roll to R&B, the singer/song writer carries elements of his upbringing as the son of Motown’s Gary Martin of the legendary Funk Brothers and intertwines them with hypnotic melodies and bass-heavy production.
With production from Mikhail, Deli and Fax Cain, as well as a feature from Roscoe Dash, the 5-track EP creates an experience that ties in elements of the London, ON, music scene alongside the dark waves and ambient vibes of Toronto.
‘Solace’ takes listeners through a remarkable two-year absence that left Sami homeless. Bravely original, the E.P is a mixture of rap, spoken word & soulful vocals. Produced by Ross OD and legendary film composer Andy Gray, it is the honest story of a young man fighting for his place in the world.
A story seemingly destined to be forgotten. ‘Solace’ was only made possible by the unexpected generosity of a stranger; a man who remains largely unknown but was moved enough by Sami’s words during an impromptu poetry performance at Ronnie Scott’s to finance the E.P’s creation, bringing him out of the darkness to create clarity from the chaos.
