Rhythm & Culture Music releases an intriguing album blending electronic music and world beats to document the multicultural sounds of the US capital.
Washington DC-based Rhythm & Culture Music released an intriguing album this week blending electronic music and world beats with something of the same sensibility as the superb Balkan Beats sets emanating out of Berlin. The Sound of Rhythm & Culture is a 14-track releasing featuring local CD music with a multicultural bent. Label founder, Farid Nouri, says "each track focuses on a particular sub-amalgamation of cultures, while holding true to Rhythm & Culture’s goal: producing music that can be played through the speakers of a club, or enjoyed in various other settings." We have the pleasure today of presenting the online premiere of "Havana 2am" by Thomas Blondet, a veteran DJ since the '90s with a regular Sunday night residency at DC’s Eighteenth Street Lounge.
