Singer and lyricist Soia loves her producer Mez’ beats.

The two Viennese musicians first collaborated for their 2011 single 'Obtaining', which received love from blogs such as Moovmnt and BamaLoveSoul, and was featured on radio shows and mixes all over the world. Soia and Mez released their first album 'Mood Swings' on Philadelphia-based label 'Record Breakin’' in 2013. Melancholic and gentle, then demanding and powerful, Soia’s vocals oscillate between Soul and Electronic Hip Hop, dancing effortlessly over the Dilla-esque beats and beautiful harmonization of Mez. The biotechnologist’s lyrics are engagingly weird - All sorts of creatures, real and imagined, land on her operating table and under her microscope. The half Israeli Jazz pianist Mez has been producing for over ten years and is possessed by the search for the perfect sound. The Jazz pianist has produced for US rapper Raashan Ahmad. With the last 'Soia' album carrying a more Neo Soul sound and feel, the new material is oriented more towards world music samples, and contains Ethiopian, Kurdish and Jazz sample flakes. The sophomore LP is definitely be more upbeat, with deeper bass and was released in USA and Japan in 2016. The two are working on a new EP.
