Soho Kings are rapper Celsius911 and producer/singer Bryce Alvord, two incredible artists in Manhattan, New York that have come together to make what they describe as "an extremely accessible, yet edgy form of alternative, hip-hop influenced pop." Although their formation of Soho Kings is recent, their collaborations together and love for music stretch back a few years.
As a child Celsius911 appeared on the album "Kings Kounty" along with artists like Jay-Z, M.O.P. and Lost Boyz. He was also one of the first ever rappers to appear on BET's "106 & Park." Bryce Alvord was in the group Spit Hot Fire whose music landed on The WB, TV shows like "The Real World," and they released several albums. Celsius911 kept busy releasing a solo album "Diary of an Arthur" and several mix tapes and managed to discover Bryce Alvord's talent along the way and the two have been inseparable since.
Bryce Alvord's production offers up a very eclectic and upbeat musical sound and griping vocals fit perfectly with Celsisus911's smooth, articulate flow. They are currently working on their first album together but so far the first tracks from the duo demonstrate a fresh new energy. "Hush" sounds likes a superhero theme song and delivers clever rhymes and a catchy hook. "Killen Me Slow" has a similar vibe to it, offering an electric instrumentation that drives the song forward and is extremely catchy. Soho Kings also give us an amazing pop tune in "Like Glue" mixing piano/classical and hip hop in an effortless way.
It will be exciting to see what this original pair come up with next and what the future holds. The music industry is already taking notice and it won't be long before we hear more from Soho Kings. Their songs are like finding the perfect pair of sneakers and the freshest jacket ever, and having them both match. Next time you step out of the house make sure to rock that Soho Kings outfit because it will turn heads.
