Radio Raheem is a hip hop/new wave/soul/disco superbot Seattle band with a new record called Down for the Get Down. Band members are Josephine Howell on vocals, Bryan Cohen on Guitar, Paul Christofferson playing bass, Trevor Rasmussen on guitar/keys/sax and Zia Uddin rocking the drums with special guest Shock G rapping on “Push the Party”. To create its dance-o-licious sound the band traveled to 1983 and harnessed the energy of fifty 13-year-olds dancing to The Time played through a tape deck and then traveled back to the present, adding old school hip hop, toy pianos, fuzzed out guitars, synths run through guitar effects with lyrics about getting busy, atomic bombs, summers, zombies, robots, dancing and being a bad ass. Radio Raheem’s music sounds like Tears for Fears, Tina Turner (Beyond Thunder Dome), ABC, Depeche Mode, Run DMC, Gorillaz, Beck, Mavis Staples, Bay City Rollers, Talking Heads, U2 and Black Eyed Peas having a Jersey Shore level party with audio slices of Blade Runner, the Warriors, Jackie Brown and Cheech n’ Chong rolled in for good luck. Featured tracks are: Push the Party, Party Poppin, Calling the World, Summer Anthem, Glorius and Float your Heart.
