Welcome to Radio Raheem
We are a hip hop/new wave/soul/disco superbot Seattle band with a new record called Down for the Get Down. Our 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.
To create the Radio Raheem dance-o-licious sound we 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. Yeah! Come on! Come on!
And by the way we brought Shock G AKA Humpty Hump leader of the Digital Underground to the party as well!
