We caught up with Revolutionary Rhythm.
Remember when we told you about Revolutionary Rhythm a few weeks ago? Well, we’ve managed to get an interview with the group. Peep it below!
When did you guys start making beats and start rhyming?
We started making music around the age of 18. We started freestyling around 16 years old but actually started recording later.
What sort of music did you listen to growing up?
We listened to everything..mostly Hip Hop, Rock, Reggae, Jazz, Salsa..
What was the first hip hop track that caught your attention?
Binary Star – Honest Expression…such a dope track!
Who influences your style?
The Hip Hop greats..Family & Friends
Do you think it is important to have a musical background, whether it be classically trained or just learning an instruments?
I wouldnt say it’s important to know how to play music but to learn how to appreciate it.
Describe how you approach the making of a track, beats and rhymes wise.
We usually play beats from our collection and just find memories or thoughts in our minds that would fit the beat best. We also write then find a beat for the topic
What equipment and/or instruments do you guys use?
Nothing fancy..still rhyming in the closet because we love the raw sound. Music still sounds good out of your speakers.
What are your fondest musical memories?
Making music in our old garage. We had some dope designs on the walls that Predominance painted. We also had instruments all over the room. We had all night recording sessions in there and its also where we first started making. Good times
What’s your biggest musical accomplishment and why?
Performing with People Under The Stairs at the El Rey Theatre. We always were big fans of PUTS before we even started making music. So the fact that they reached out to us and asked if we would like to work with them is amazing and were thankful.
Never thought of that…haha. Our label when we get it up and running haha
Favourite producer and MC?
Too many..at the moment it would be Blu & Exile.
Who would you most like to work with and why?
Damu the Fudgemunk..R2 on the rhymes, Damu on the beats..how ill would that be?? haha
What are your thoughts on UK Hip Hop and is there anyone in the UK you’d like to work with?
UK Hip Hop is ill..I was watching a few music videos not too long ago haha. Some UK producers!
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
If you feel it, run with it
What advice would you give to beginners starting out?
Make sure you’re sound is where you want it before you put it out.
