From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Solesides was an underground hip hop label based in Northern California, founded in 1992. It comprised various DJs and MCs, the most notable being DJ Shadow and MC–producer Lyrics Born. In 1996 the label won a "Goldie" award from the San Francisco Bay Guardian, being described as "Both a progressive crew of deejays and rappers and a fiercely independent artist-owned label...".

The label produced some of the most notable and memorable hip-hop music of the early 1990s including Blackalicious's "Melodica", Latyrx's "The Album" and DJ Shadow's "Entropy".

Solesides disbanded in the winter of 1996, and was reborn as Quannum Projects in spring of 1997.
