About

Welcome to the Shades of Rhythm Sound Cloud. Here we hope to start uploading the history of Shades of Rhythm in the form of Vinyl releases from 1987 acetates to 2009 Remixes. We have dug deep and to start the cloud off we have found our first 2 Acetates we pressed to play in our DJ sets way back in 1987 followed by our very first release on Stevie V's label Beatbox International back in 1988.
Shades of Rhythm are Nick Slater, Kevin Lancaster & Rayan Hepburn but on these very early releases we had a fourth member, Colin "Wildcat" Tyson who was a huge influence on the band. Cat always wanted his own label & didn't want to sign his music to a another record label and in 1988 decided to go it alone.
Next up was the Frequency album, our first Album, pressed up by ourselves and responsible for kickstarting our musical endeavours. The Frequency Album was Naive yet fresh and will always bring back fond memories of that time. We literally sold the vinyl out the boot of our car to places like Spin Inn Records in Manchester & Mash records in London.
While The Frequency Album was busy getting signed we put out the Fenland Bass EP. We released it on our SOR Recordings label (SOR 002) under the artist name "Frenzied Bass". Not sure why? Probably so as not to interfere with the forthcoming ZTT releases.
Our Records were getting played and our first Remixes came in, one from an Indie band called Habit and a track called Power. The other from 2 friends of ours from Peterborough, Dave Allen & Simon Brownlie, recording under the name Tranquillizer for Casper Pounds label Rising High.
Next up the ZTT years...
