A relentless, tough, cool as fuck, Afro Beat-tinged Funk winner made for dancers by a dancer. It's the brainchild of Rare Groove innovator, Barrie K Sharpe & his musical partner Gareth Tasker: really, that's all you need to know (Snowboy)

Rythm Rhyme Revolution (Barrie Sharpe & Gareth Tasker): Gareth plays & Barrie produces. Their sound is individual - based upon the funk of the 70s – however, with a totally modern production…

Barrie K Sharpe, as most know, was one of the four creators of Duffer, one of the two creators of the “Rare Groove” scene and in the band that defined Acid Jazz - Diana Brown & The Bothers. Indeed he was very much at the forefront of the movement that changed youth culture in the mid 80s.

Diana Brown & The Bothers metamorphosed into The Brand New Heavies, The Young Disciples: &, along With Diana Brown, Barrie had the first Acid Jazz style commercial success with their track “Masterplan”… 

“I designed the clothes, ran the club, played the records, was in the band and made the music, which created the scene that changed youth culture worldwide. I just kept falling up hill”… 

Barrie talks regarding his musical partner Gareth Tasker: “Gareth is a major part of the sound, he plays all the instrumentation on every track; which he also co-writes. Gareth is the unsung hero of the Acid Jazz scene. We have been working together since 1987 – a fuckin’ musical genius”
