With number 1 charting singles and worldwide album sales, SoulStice and Haysoos are both accomplished artists in their own right. SoulStice has recently released the much-acclaimed album, "North by Northwest: Solid Ground" and has been featured in XXL, SCRATCH, URB, Elemental and many more. SoulStice hails from Chicago, but currently resides in Maryland where Haysoos calls home. Both taking prominent roles in the east coast hip hop scene, a few collaborations eventually led to the smash single "Rock Solid," featuring former Terror Squad member Cuban Link. The single was so successful that the duo began recording an entire album as Wade Waters, which is due out on Wandering Soul in the fall of 2006 with distribution through Raptivism/Ryko. With a sound that readily appeals to hip hop fans of all types and a rapidly growing domestic and international buzz, Wade Waters is the group to watch in 2006 and beyond.

The debut album, Dark Water, finds SoulStice and Haysoos collaborating with the legendary AZ on the LPs lead-single, "Speak On It" (produced by Analogic) and former Terror Squad member Cuban Link on the smash single "Rock Solid" (produced by Shuko). In addition, Wade Waters captures the signature sound of D.C./Maryland with the aid of up-and-coming producer Kev Brown, who contributes production on "That's My." Additional production is handled by Analogic, Speaks, Bring it Back, and SBE Audiologist. According to Neil Levine, head of Urban Marketing at EMI/Caroline, Dark Water is "a classic gem from Wade Waters bringing back real hip hop."

Won't say to much except if you ain't heard this album, then you're missing out on one seriously dope album. Every track is a banger, with lashings of that soulful boom bap we all love to hear. SoulStice & Haysoos are some intelligent MC's and really flow well together while spittin on a real positive vibe that everyone can relate to. This is an album you cannot afford to let pass you by, look at the producers!!! It don't better than that. Get familiar with the likes of Analogic, Shuko, SBE, Kev Brown because they are the future right here. If you haven't already, make sure you cop the SoulStice solo album he dropped in 2007 called Dead Letter Perfect, here's the link... Dead Letter Perfect... Really dope album which features production from another ill producer, Oddisee, as well as Analogic & SBE... don't sleep!
