Soul ID is a HipHop/R&B Group representing Jakarta, Indonesia. The group contains 2 Rapper: Drusteelo&Tabib Qiu, 2 Singers: MissJaydee&Afrogil. However this is not the original formation. First bursting into the scene in the year 2003,Drusteelo, Jiggytime(R.I.P), G Quest were known as SOULID. They released their first album in 2004, entitled ESOYUELAIDI with GMG recording/Warner Music. With 3 top charts singles, a promising future, they are ready to hit full throtle..until February 6 2005, after they finished their sophmore album, on the way home from the studio, a terrible car accident lost the life of our beloved Jiggytime, and as if its not bad enough, a couple of weeks later G Quest quit the group to join Indonesian Idol. So with a full 2nd album on hand,the only member left, Drusteelo determines to keep on going no matter what, to honor his peers.Then a surprised came when EMI Recording Label wants to sign Soulid as their artist. It has been a long road and when it finally arrives, the member is 2 people short, so EMI ask Drusteelo to recruit new members for the group, and for about 3 months, finally 3 people were gathered and the group's were reborn with a new name : Soul ID. They released their 2nd album SOULFIDELIS( meaning:Always Faithfull) in October 2005. Of course Jiggytime's last work is still on the album. And he still have a lot of unreleased materials. As far as Drusteelo's and G Quest goes, they still friends. But a new chapter is ready to be filled with more journey..Tabib Qiu, MissJayde, Afrogil & Drusteelo is ready with new and fresh materials. Although they just resign from EMI Indonesia ( that's another long story..he.he..), Soul ID is confident with their decissions and looking for a more and wide opportunities with a new label in the future... AND U DON'T STOP !!!! Soul ID’s 3rd album ‘JIWARAGA’ was released in May 2007 under Rizky Rekordz and Universal Music Indonesia.
