About ReDuX:RMx and Race of Tan Records

ReDuX:RMx is a recording studio duo, with Bret Menezes and Eddie Paton at its core. The concept was born in the cosmopolitan city of Toronto, Canada, where cafes and hip eateries feature a fusion of world cultures.

Taking these sounds and combining them with modern electronica, ReDuX:RMx, as their name suggests, have “revisited” and “remixed” their original world music and nu-jazz for contemporary urban living.

Their music reflects the concept of their imprint label, Race of Tan Records - the coming together of races and cultures in the art and spirit of music.
ReDuX:RMx music appears on WARNER MUSIC compilations.
