about

As the title suggests, “Hopes & Dreams” encapsulates Solrakmi’s hopes for a better world, whilst simultaneously capturing reminiscence for the “good old days”. With his roots in Boombap and classic 90’s Hip Hop shining through, Solrakmi’s album “Hopes & Dreams” alights our nostalgia whilst also remaining relevant to present day issues.

“Hopes & Dreams” demonstrates the exceptional way that Solrakami pieces together an album, showcasing his use of chops and re-arrangement in ways that masterfully showcase a particular concept. Jazzy, head-boppingly catchy and bittersweet, each track features speech samples that introduce a subject. The music then sets a layered and complex mood, shifting from sadness, reminiscence and all the way over to hopefulness. An album with far more sustenance than your average beat tape, there is a tinge of hope and positivity throughout “Hopes and Dreams” that will bring listeners back time and time again.
