The Sound of Rhythm & Culture Remixed
ESL Music is pleased to announce the follow up remix release from Rhythm & Culture Music!
Rhythm & Culture Music finishes off the year strong with “The Sound of Rhythm & Culture Remixed.” Inviting label favorites and new talent to collaborate on this finely-distilled brew of music, the label maintains its edgy, sophisticated sound while still serving feel-good dance floor tunes signature to the style of label co-creator Farid.
Thomas Blondet’s ode to the Bossa Nova sound reaches a new height with the exquisite vocals of local DC songstress Sarah Vertino. This version of “Samba Soul” is a perfect example of the song-oriented dance floor gems according to which Rhythm & Culture identifies itself.
All India Radio’s dramatic acoustic guitar amplification of Second Sky’s “Too Far” is juxtaposed with the staccato Balkan tones of Omegaman’s recreation of Thomas Blondet’s “Havana 2am” while Hippie Torrales seamlessly blends the celebratory vocals on Farid’s “Freedom” with an enchanting, anthem-like instrumental part.
An all-time favorite on the original album, “The Way We Go” maintains Rhythm & Culture’s commitment to DC mic culture featuring the lyrical talent of Eric “E-Ball” Burton. This time around, artist Thomas Blondet invites ESL Music co-conspirators Ancient Astronauts to remold the track. Pushing the tempo by adding heavy bassdrums and dirty snare pops, The Astros design a dangerous off-beat reggae sample to compliment E-ball’s voice.
To conclude the album, Zeb gracefully accepts the bones of Second Sky’s “Under the Line” to reassemble them into the more delicate, Eastern and percussive skeleton of a dub track renamed “Under the Bass Line”. The collaborative efforts on this album are sure to feed the soul of any Rhythm & Culture fan looking to dance, chill, celebrate, wonder or be inspired by earotic talent. Rhythm & Culture Music is proud to present, The Sound of Rhythm & Culture Remixed.
