is an unparalleled combination of intelligent lyricism and spine melting R&B vocals upon a foundation of meticulously produced original bass music. Initially joining forces for a Burning Man project, this team of West Coast musicians quickly won the affection of any audience who caught their show, which features an infectious array of supreme talent, friendship, humor and creative prowess on stage.
Ultimate Fantastic is comprised of Julian Fritz (Dropical) on production, Deja Solis on seductive, soulful and intriguing vocals, and Pharroh and Wink delivering intricately laced word-play and emcee vocal precision. All four members are seasoned artists who have toured extensively world wide and been involved with a versatile line-up of influential musical groups including Albino, Hamsa Lila, Vagabundos, and Pega5u5 to name a few.
Steeped in the West Coast, the group draws from a variety of influences including underground hip-hop, festival sub- cultures, electronic dance music and roots and soul tradition; and synthesizes their original artistry into ardent and unbridled musical expression and storytelling. Their sound is at once tasteful and classic as it is futuristic and imaginative. Their debut album “Super Human,” released by Jumpsuit Records, is sure to win your heart and delight your senses with its adventurous, refreshing, and refined musical spirit. Album release January 27th 2017.
Coming up in what now seems like a lost culture of originality and stylistic expression, Pharroh is an architect of designer music. Deeply immersed in the Northern California hip-hop underground, Pharroh has been leaving his mark on outdoor festivals, with his slick musings and musical, rhythmic cadence.
A versatile storyteller, his conscious lyrics commit to an honest reflection of where we are as a society with wit and an unnatural lack of hubris. His ability to take the listener through deep concepts with a silly, sometimes playful sense of humor is what sets him apart from your everyday lyricist.
Deja Solis is a singer, songwriter, dancer, humanitarian, farmer, and family woman who has become known around the globe as the model for the world renowned Bliss Dance sculpture series. Showcased at Burning Man Festival, Treasure Island, the San Leandro Bart Station, and the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas, Bliss Dance is a trilogy of 40-57 ft tall steel nude statues by sculptor Marco Cochrane. The series addresses issues surrounding women feeling safe in the world to stand free in their natural beauty. As Ultimate Fantastic's songstress, Deja comes out of the world and underground West Coast festival scene that brought EDM and alternative bass culture to the forefront of mainstream music. Her musical background began as a nomadic journey studying techniques and traditions around the globe, as well as the complexity of Jazz standards, bringing a well-rounded depth to her natural born soul-singing style. Some of her past projects include: System Krush, Radio Devi, and Hamsa Lila. On the daily, Deja's life is dedicated to tending to her family and organic farm. She prides living a lifestyle off the grid, using solar power and well water to sustain a natural way of life.
Emcee, singer and song writer, Wink has spent the last 18 years exploring the possibilities of his musical expression. At his core he is a conscious lyricist whose style can vary from thought provoking intricately woven verses to machine gun fast spitting. Wink is also known for his multilingual abilities, singing and rapping in Portuguese as well as English. He has lived and performed extensively in South America.
