On many occasions, the world of music is similar to that of the stock market, and the attention paid to an artist depends on his ability to be ubiquitous, to never step on the brake. There are those who are ‘up’ more for the gift of timing and persistence than for the true quality of their music, and then we have those who are down. But thanks to labels like Rhythmdot, they have managed to ensure that some artists, of indisputable quality and musical trajectory, ignored by market trends, can surface and resurface in the most fair way, as is the case that concerns us now, their debut compilation.
Ritmo is the new sister label to Johnny Johnny Records. Their criteria is based on the power side of their highest gross and peak hour catalogs. Rhythm aims to bring you the best techno and house music championing some of the best local and international talent on the scene.
Now Rhythm. brings a stacked VA packed with the best high-energy beats for our debut release. This package comes with a little bit of everything in mind. Everything from Big Dub Techno, raw tracks to more punchy and intricate beats. This release, specifically curated by Beau You Know, showcases some of the best local and international talent.
The tracks are strong and leap above the prevailing conventions, knowing how to avoid the most recurring rawness and darkness, looking for dance but without predictable tricks and without exceeding an understandable level of experimentation suitable for the floor.
In addition, this selection maintains a narrative line that shows that his compositions are not nihilistic, but are part of a process that, thanks to the mastery of his compilers, is easy to enter. We can almost say that that punk attitude that runs through each song no longer belongs to the young, since maturity can also be their golden age. For this very reason, the best of the compilation is not so much what it contains, but what it promises: having made the necessary balance, it is known that what has to come from Rhythmdot in the future will be even better.
