Israel, stand up! DJs Sabbo, Wido, Rob, and Shimmy Sonique of Tel Aviv’s Soulico crew have stepped into the Booth with a tune guaranteed to get worldly heads out onto the floor. The title track and current single off the foursome’s forthcoming full-length, Exotic on the Speaker, is a dancefloor-scorching blend of the foreign and the universal. Over Soulico’s upbeat Middle Eastern groove, Rye Rye (also heard on Blaqstarr‘s In the Mood), recounts a night spent drinking, smoking, flirting and wilding-out at the local nightspot. If the Baltimore femcee’s distinctively-flowed verses don’t get you moving, the breakneck chorus should do the trick – supplementing Rye Rye’s chopped vocals with a bracing, synth-accented double-time groove, Soulico deliver a hook drenched in pure aural adrenaline. Are clubs stateside ready for this Israeli crew’s globetrotting sound? You be the jury. In any case, readers looking for more exotic jams to put on their speakers are sure to find what they seek on Soulico’s latest LP, out now on iTunes and Amazon and set to hit stores everywhere Oct. 6.
