Poets of Rhythm

Using equipment and recording techniques inspired by the rawness of ’60s and ’70s funk, German band Poets of Rhythm have developed a trademark sound that laid a foundation for a unique output that goes far beyond the average “Soul Brother No.1” style funk outfit. A number of successful releases in the early ’90s were followed by a hook-up with Quannum (Tom Shimura) aka Lyrics Born, who, as a keen record collector, found it difficult to believe that the “45 he’d picked up in a New Orleans record shop did not, in fact, date from the original golden era of funk, but rather was a contemporary take on the original sound. Tracking down the band, his enthusiasm led them to reform after a period of inactivity, and their subsequent collaborations demonstrated not just their mastery over their influences, but the confidence to depart from tradition and forge something new.
