It has been a busy few months putting things in place but … the time has finally come to announce our first release, RLOO1 on Rhythm Labs Record.We’re joined by two of Europes up&coming producers Grażyna Biedroń and Provhat Rahman from the DAY TIMERS collective. Our first release ‘RL001’, a two-track compilation project, displaying sounds spanning across the many realms of rave music.
Graznya Biedron – Alright
On this side, we have ‘Alright’ Graznya highly anticipated debut release. Alright is a slow-burning deep house track., with self-incorporated lo-fi vocals with a heavy bassline. Grażyna merges her affinity for Chicago and Detroit House with Poland’s rhythmic flair. She is showcasing a song that is both deeply personal and filled with love for the house and dance scene.
Provhat Rahman (DAYTIMERS)
Track two of ‘RL001’ is from London based artist, Provhat Rahman, who is a founding member of the ‘DAYTIMERS. An art collective composed of South Asian musicians, artists, photographers and more. ‘Pedal’ is also a debut release from Provhat Rahman, who has received great praise and publicity. The track has featured on LCY’s Rinse FM show and Raji Rags’s NTS show and Hodge Rinse show. Provhat has experimented with his breakbeat influences to drive track forward while sampling Lyn Collins – Think. The vocal sample in ‘Pedal’ is taken from a woman singing the Indian equivalent of a western scale. but manipulated so that all the notes are the same, which is where I came up with the name ‘Pedal’. The track takes us on a journey of off-kilter bass and breakbeats with an East Asian influence
