I had the pleasure of conducting an interview with the LA based record label Stereocure, who gave me better insight into just how deeply they find intimacy with music. It's not just an undying love for the object that is music, but an all out motive to succeed within the industry. "Stereocure is a collective of musicians, writers, and artists dedicated to a vision of contemporary music culture that is inspired by a progressive and creative spirit." Even their description makes me faithful in the next few years of artistry.
Today I bring you the first release off of his forthcoming untitled EP, "Take it Slow," with the full project slated to release on July 22nd. This being his third release and his first full-length vinyl release slated for January 2015, A Sol Mechanic’s music often derives from the grass roots hip hop instrumentalism that has lasted for years. This premiere is a slab of piano complemented by an easy-listening vocal arrangement, perfect for any breakthrough in one's career. This single, mastered by Conrad Magabo of Cosmic Zoo Studios, epitomizes the A Sol Mechanic sound: "modern jazz harmonies coupled with hip-hop beats and the twist of a future funk mentality."
A Sol Mechanic has already embarked on a slough of shows for the summer of 2014, having already visited the YouBloom Festival in Dublin, Ireland, NXNE in Toronto, Canada, and here are a few upcoming dates just in case your nearby:
- 7/6 @ Sun Scream @ The Mondrian Rooftop

Enjoy "Take it Slow" and get ready for a fun-filled July.
