2 Years after the release of their critically acclaimed album Death Drive, Sole & DJ Pain 1 announce the follow-up album, “Nihilismo.” This album embodies the overlap of their music with the world of activism and journalism. Nihilismo is a revolutionary hip-hop album that challenges the nihilism of modern life, of late stage capitalism and of a world that seems to have no future. It is a DIY testament to how both artists have plotted a way out of that despair through DIY ethics and a life of making working class, yet revolutionary music.  To be released on collaboration with Fake Four Inc. & Alpha Pup.

The winning collaboration between indy rap iconoclast and platinum producer DJ Pain 1 has resulted in truly original music that has been heralded by industry standards including 2DopeBoyz and Spin, as well as popular radical media platforms such as Russia Today and Truthout. Featuring contributions from punk rock icon Chris Hanna of Propagandhi, anarchist author Scott Crow, Decomposure, Fake Four label head Ceschi, Jah Boogie, Church Fire and The Delta Mirror, "Nihilismo" pushes the boundaries of the genre. The album also includes the title track for the upcoming documentary on Drone whistleblowers, "National Bird," which recently premiered at the Berlin Film Festival to rave reviews.

Your support will allow us to press up vinyl for our new album and make a vinyl version of our last project, Death Drive. With your supportive pre-orders and donations, we will mix the album, & get it mastered.
