The singer, composer and producer of music known as Cidic Sol has released his latest single, “Obaa.” The track has been independently released and is the most significant official release from Cidic Sol to date. It has been concurrently published alongside its official music video by the same title, available to the public for viewing everywhere. Groovy, exotic and uplifting, “Obaa” by Cidic Sol is one of the most intriguing and new dance singles to appear in 2014 so far.
Cidic Sol cites as main artistic influences such artists as Omar, Osunlade, and Floating Points. His signature sound is inspired in part by these, but takes cues from a vast spread of varying styles throughout the genres of R 'n' B, nu soul, hip hop and electronica. This amalgam is further augmented by Cidic Sol's musical culture, which has its origins in Ghana, Africa.
Speaking of his start in music, Cidic Sol's representative writes that he began by performing “his own songs backed by old hip-hop tracks which steered from a boarding school fresher’s initiation in sixth form whilst reading sciences in the Volta region of Ghana.”
The themes of “Obaa” are playfully romantic in nature, though not dramatic. Speaking of this, Cidic Sol writes, “Obaa (Woman) talks about how the pressures of life make us make different choices to please others, but at some point we have to take a break to look at what we really want.”
The artist, who now lives in England, writes of his music career in the UK thus:
“Cidic Sol was a young artist who had a deep love and affection for music and all that it had to offer. Performing at the National Theatre, fashion shows and Guinness-sponsored talent shows earned him management, although short lived due to the call of education.
“Life really started in London for Cidic Sol as he hooked up with various artists and producers heightening his senses and homing in on his hidden love of something different. The love of Hip Hop, Reggae, Rnb and Nu Soul was soon to be fashioned into his own interpretations...
“With an ever-evolving music industry that is now becoming more accessible the plan was to learn develop and move forward. Writing and recording was next on his list working with a few different engineers and producers, however it had not always been easy being understood creatively. It was inevitable that he would get drawn to a producer by the name of Patric Mclean (Dark Chambers), at Brickworx Studios, the home of CS Gas Records. Together they embarked on developing and the production of Cidic-Sol’s EP, 'Dialect,' merging his mother tongue and the journey of his influences so far.
“As Cidic Sol plans his next project with the BrumTown Hit Factory, surely another great contribution is set to follow.”
“Obaa” by Cidic Sol is available online worldwide.
