Detroit rap group Clear Soul Forces bring an energetic mix of ill beats and well written rhymes, all with the feel of a classic hip hop crew. Formed almost by accident after a mammoth rhyming session for Royce Da 5’9, who suggested they make music together rather than individually.
The group have a very polished style, each member has a unique sound but they all blend together incredibly well. Their energy is great and it brings a real intensity to the rawer tracks they have. Although they have a classic crew vibe, this doesn’t mean they restrict themselves to a classic hip hop sound, using synth based electronic sounding instrumentals as well as the boom bap beats we all love.
The group’s latest release is their Departure EP, with guest producers such as Hudson Mohawke, Nameless and Best Kept Secret, it is definitely worth a listen. You can listen to and purchase both the Departure EP and their original mix tape, Clear Soul Radio on bandcamp.
