We Are Europe by Elevate Music & Arts
The world of Cid Rim circles around the boundless magic and mythical formulas of funk. When speaking of his influences and musical socialisation, the viennese producer and drummer ends in the 70ies of the past century. Think of the JBs, big band sounds á la Stan Kenton or the drum breaks, which widely opened his personal doors to funk.
Through constant exchange with his band colleagues Dorian Concept and The Clonious he sharpened his producer skills and also pushed forward into progressive HipHop and contemporary electronica. While startin´ as an enthusiastic sample digger his current works unfold a tempo-independence, a playful and interlaced sound, shifted with deep chords. A hybrid of programmed beats and analogue drum patterns meets razorsharp grooves and monumental power-steps.
Having already released EP’s on Affine in the last months he has produced for Okmalumkoolkat, Theophilus London and Spoek Mathambo, remixing CHVRCHES, Mikky Ekko or Sky Ferreira. His latest works now see the light through Lucky Me the label which will also release his next album in October. Cid Rim will perform for the first time in Greece though the Elevate showcase as part of the We are Europe programm.
