During a fairly recent Bandcamp hunt I had the pleasure of stumbling across a gem of a project from up and coming South Dakota-based producer/musician Iota. Iota's pet solo project Rhythms and Sounds is an almost self-explanatory body of work.
The ten track album features some nifty compositions that showcase Iota's sampling and production skills. With an almost Google-proof moniker as Iota it was a pretty tough task gathering some info on Iota and his latest project. After searching the internet high and low I took the next logical step and reached out to the man himself to gain some insight into his instrumental album Rhythms and Sounds.
I have been a drummer since the single digits. So, naturally, when my band members moved out west this year I had to become an actual musician. I realized this whilst engaging in a freestyling session with my associates, which takes place strictly within the confines of my 2000 Camry, on what some would call an "L-ride". After a serious lack of instrumentals, we came to the conclusion that there are too many emcees and not enough beats. So, next thing I knew I constructed a lab and locked myself in it until I emerged with a handful of rhythms and sounds. -Iota
