PRLog - Sep. 4, 2009 - ATLANTA -- (Atlanta, GA) – Newly signed to X Records, the uber-creative duo known as Blac Soap, will get some northern exposure as they leave the sun and palm trees of Tampa for the crisp air and picturesque landscape of Ontario, Canada. The Hip-Hop dynamos are on deck for a busy month that includes a video shoot for their breakout hit “80’s Boom Box” being shot in Hamilton [Ontario] on September 25, 2009. Taking the production to another country is dual-purposed—
The group that is Blac Soap is comprised of two multi-talented producers, musicians, writers, and visual artists known as Seif and Fly Beads. Originally from Long Island, New York and Fayetteville, North Carolina, respectively, the two reside and call Tampa, Florida home. Their unforgettable presence and fresh style caught the attention of Tampa native, Prechae Rodriguez, the agile star wide receiver for the Canadian Football League’s (CFL) Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The immediate friendship that sparked unveiled a slew of common interests—mainly music and the arts—and would eventually bring Blac Soap to Rodriguez’s playing turf.
Blac Soap’s brand new single, “80’s Boom Box” is making serious waves and garnering a buzz that has made the CFL take notice. The impending video will illustrate the cool, futuristic and funky vibe that resonates in Blac Soap’s music. “80’s Boom Box” takes you back to the fresh-dressed Hip-Hop that once exuded the four elements instead of shading them. The group’s motto, “Green Music for Blue People” speaks volumes in a time where people are searching for the simple things in life again. “80’s Boom Box” is the beginning of a solution for a musical culture experiencing so many problems. Shooting the video in Canada affords a fresh perspective, as well as some promotional resources for their breakout project.
“Linking up with Prechae Rodriguez and having that relationship connect us to others is amazing”, says Seif of Blac Soap, “Everything we’ve been working so hard for is coming together, and our creative vision is being realized. Being able to go to Canada to do the video…to bring our style and sound to a new environment is something every artist shoots for”.
Production begins on Friday, September 25th and will extend through the weekend.
