Rhythm Masters

Disconnect Your Head

Tommy Boy

Faith may move mountains, but this stuff makes them fly” – from “Cocaine.” The first single from Disconnect Your Head, “The Underground” has received much media praise and is truly a musical adventure as is much of the album. If house is as tired to you as techno, if you•re jaded by the dullness of beatless electronic “music”, then The Rhythm Masters serve as medicine to heal your musical wounds. They are the paramedics to a complacent electronic audience expecting the expected. There isn•t a single song on all of Disconnect Your Head that doesn•t blow your mind, and not even one track goes where you think it•s going. A few particularly orgasmic tunes are “Electronic Funk” (Daft Punk friendly), “One in a Million” (hip-hop love), the electro-dubby “Bring It On,” and “Heavy Soul”(unforgiving dance). This is a must have, must hear, must devour CD.
