We're ecstatic that one of the singles from TWO, our second CD release, has been selected as a semi-finalist in the 2007 International Songwriting Competition (ISC) in the Instrumental category.The track is world, rock eclectic with hints of electronica and film orchestration: think belly dancing and Eddie Van Halen. The instrumentation juxtaposes steel guitar with the Middle Eastern lute, called an oud. The rhythms and orchestration climaxes to a Van Halen style guitar solo - an unpredictable change up.

Ideas on the upcoming release of ReDuX:RMx TWO - October 7, 2007
The word redux can refer to a work that has been brought back, revived, restored or revisited. ReDuX:RMx had this in mind in creating Latin, cool and funk jazz for contemporary musical tastes - bridging new audio techniques with old-school musical forms and exotic world instruments. For purists, the original musical compositions were recorded live in the studio. For the adventurous, ReDuX:RMx used new sonic digital technologies as instruments. It was an organic creative process. It was also in keeping with the concept of our label, Race of Tan Records: the coming together of races and cultures in the art and spirit of music. ReDuX:RMx didn’t want to create Logo Pop that would be dumbing and disposable. We wanted to musically challenge you - without the attitude. And we wanted to make sophisticated, yet accessible original contemporary music based on historically influential jazz styles and global musical cultures that would fit your urban, cosmopolitan lifestyle. Enjoy.
