What is rhythm?

What is rhythm to you? Is it the cadence of events, be they as loud as a train rushing by, or as subtle as a heart’s pulse? Or is it the backbone of a beat, the rumbling spine to which every other sonic sinew is attached? The truth is that rhythm is so many things to so many people. Some shared and some utterly unique.

We have put together a series of short films diving into rhythm with the likes of Boys Noize, Stella Mozgawa, Hana, Tec Beatz, Neybuu, and Jonwayne. Get ready for short thoughts on big subjects as we talk BPMs, inspirations, gear of choice, with a healthy dash of philosophizing to boot.

And we’d love to keep the conversation about rhythm going. Watch the first video on YouTube here and let us know your thoughts.
