Solar Heist is a pop project by S.F. natives and childhood friends Jason Powers and Justin Karcich. Now based in Studio City, they each had separate career paths (Powers as a singer-songwriter and Karcich as a DJ/producer) before collaborating on what they could only possibly agree on: electro-fused neo-funk. Their sophomore EP, Day Trip, drops tomorrow (June 2nd) which includes a collaboration with composers Gray Bashew and Erik Groysman on the track “Ready To Roll.” The song is a fun fusion of funky guitar licks, heavy synth bass, and driving percussion while the lyrics describe an idyllic music fest experience.
“Let’s get it started, I’m ready to roll.”
