Music Plug! Introducing Solaariss

Written by on 13/10/2020

Welcome to Music Plug, where we put you on to some bangers you didn’t know you needed to hear! 

This week we got to catch up briefly with the talented Solaariss, after the release of his Debut single “Up until Recently”. After being able to exclusively premiere his song on our show – which you can tune into every Sunday from 9 – 11 am- We thought it only right to find more about the artist. 

Solaariss is an Artist/Producer from South London who boasts an arsenal of instruments, most notably, the saxophone. Having collaborated with contemporaries such as Lex Amor, Alxndr London, and more, Solaariss found himself taking a step into the light with this single.

The track is an upbeat, rhythmic vibe, with a deep reflective undertone as a result of the realisation of not being there for someone at a time they really need you. When asked about the inspiration for the track he told us:

“I’d say my favourite my favourite part when coming up with the track ‘Up until Recently’ was definitely coming up with the concept and the meaning behind the track, although it’s quite relatable and simple, it’s something we really need to all strive to do more of especially in these times, just be a carer to the people that we love, the people around us, and anyone who may need our help.” 


You may have to listen to this track twice, to grasp the true meaning behind the catchy Afro Latin inspired song.

Solaariss then went on to describe his sound as ” Alternative Rnb Fusion with all the genres I’ve grown up with, from Afrobeats, classical music, to jazz with a proverb on top.”

For those who may not know what to expect from his music, he describes his sound in 3 artists: Pharrell Williams, Labrinth and Hans Zimmer.

You can find him on all major platforms @solaariss, and go check this song out!
