SILVIO SOUL ENLISTS BRAZILLIAN ROCK GROUP ROSETTA T. FOR MELODIC HOUSE CROSSOVER ‘BE A KING’

Brazillian house dignitary Silvio Soul returns to his own Soul Soul Records for a profoundly unique single. Blending his own melodic house mastery with the uplifting instrumentation of Brazillian rock outfit Rosetta T., ‘Be a King’ stands out as an unparalleled crossover track with an immediately broad appeal. ‘Be a King’ is out now on all streaming platforms via the newly-launched Soul Soul Records. 

STREAM: SILVIO SOUL, ROSETTA T. – ‘BE A KING’ [SOUL SOUL RECORDS] 

Be A King’ opens firmly grounded in the melodic house space as Silvio Soul layers percussion and atmospheric synths to set the tone. Slowly, Rosetta T.’s rock influence begins to show, first subtly with a gorgeous harmonic guitar riff. Soon, lead vocalist Armando Neto arrives to provide his highly emotive lyricism, meshing seamlessly with the dense production. As more light guitar and delicate synths work in, ‘Be a King’ begins to settle into a calm and mesmeric groove. However, at the second chorus the single erupts into a joyous combination of Soul’s powerful production and Neto’s soaring performance. Eventually, ‘Be A King’ slows to a tranquil close as it began, instilling a newfound hope and optimism into listeners. 

Silvio Soul (aka Silvio Soldera) is known across Brazil as one of the most prominent DJ/producers and entrepreneurs in the country. Locally, he’s stamped his name on the club scene thanks to his globally renowned sister clubs AME and Laroc (ranked 18th in DJ Mag’s “Best 100 Clubs In The World”). In addition to his roles as the creator and artistic director of both AME and Laroc, he also commands a highly sought-after residency spot at both clubs. After 20 years of club experience, Soul released his debut LP ‘Temple’ in 2020, a stunning house record that draws heavily on his mastery over a club setting. In addition to his personal discography, Soul has overseen the wildly successful AME Records, guiding the label to a lengthy and revered tenure. Recently, Soul launched his second record label Soul Soul Records in an effort to continue fostering the connection between the fans and rising producers by focusing on unique songs and intriguing mixing styles in a creative new imprint.

After launching in 2019, Brazilian rock outfit Rosetta T. have quickly made a name for themselves thanks to their 2020 EP ‘Unreleased.’ Drawing inspiration from Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Bon Jovi, and Pearl Jam, the quartet always looks to imbue their recordings with heavy doses of emotion and attitude. Comprising vocalist and acoustic guitarist Armando Neto, electric guitarist Dani Mialchi, bassist Gui Dalan, and drummer and backup vocalist Vitor Roman, Rosetta T. are a young group that should certainly be watched closely by rock fans worldwide.  

Combining two incongruous genres with ease, look for ‘Be a King’ to make waves in DJ sets and playlists everywhere. ‘Be a King’ marks a stunning leap forward not only for Silvio Soul and Rosetta T., but for Soul Soul Records as well.
