SummaryPolyrhythmics is an all original 8-piece afro-funk and worldbeat orchestra comprised of some of Seattle's finest rhythmic and melodic musicians. The music is a fusion of styles from all over the world, featuring unique, forward thinking arrangements, stellar improvisation, heavy grooves, and dynamic interplay.
Polyrhythmics have quickly gained notoriety playing to packed clubs and festival crowds all over the Northwest. Their self-titled, and now sold-out EP released in 2010, has been charting on radio playlists up and down the west coast.
After a year of further developing their distinct sound, the band recorded their first full-length album. The resulting "Labrador" is a 9-song powerhouse full of brooding dance grooves, and catchy layered horn melodies. "Labrador" was recorded at Sleng Teng Studios, specifically for it's vintage sound, and the recording process was very similar to their approach on the EP: "live" in one room, just like the greats of yester-year.
Drawing from modern influences such as the Budos Band and The Whitefield Brothers as well as their original influences, Fela Kuti, and James Brown, "Labrador" is a shining example of the chemistry between these 8 talented performers and why, in a seemingly endless sea of new funk bands, Polyrhythmics is the band everyone is talking about.
