At the core of RudeBeats forthcoming studio album release entitled "ONE", exists the live musical spirit that has captivated RudeBeats concert audiences, year after year, show after show.
In an era where so much of the music being released is heartless, machine generated and often "cookie cutter", RudeBeats album, ONE, returns us to the heyday of the live studio album. Words which describe "ONE" are: Funk, Rock, Soul, Inventive, Spontaneous and Tight!!! It works in terms of being an honest representation of the band and every song resonates with the joy of that they felt during the recording process. In addition to capturing the band in top form, the record provides a vivid sound picture, every instrument and voice sounds full and natural. Guitars (acoustic and electric), drums, bass, trumpet, sax, trombone, percussion, and more are all there in close detail.
Every track on RudeBeats "ONE" is a celebration of what RudeBeats is about -- Funky grooves, meaningful messages, and good times.
