Move over M.I.A. and Santogold, here comes Rye Rye! The Baltimore teen who stole the hearts and feet of music lovers all around the world with her debut single 'Shake it to the Ground', has just toured the US and Europe, cut records with Diplo and Sinden and signed to Insterscope - home to Eminem and N*E*R*D. One of the most exciting acts in dance music today, Rye Rye is heading to Oz - yes, yo, get ready to shake it to the ground!
Hailed by NME as “the latest prodigy from the Spank Rock stable”, Baltimore’s Rye Rye comes hot on the heels of M.I.A. and Santogold, having just signed a major record deal with Insterscope, home to Eminem, 50 Cent and N*E*R*D.
An inimitable talent with a unique sound, Rye Rye stole the hearts and feet of music lovers all around the world with her debut single ‘Shake it to the Ground’ (with Blaqstarr) – it has been the club anthem for the past year, while the video has snagged close on a million views on youtube.
Follow ups have been equally well received and include co-pros with the industry's best:
‘Wassup Wassup’ produced by Diplo on Mad Decent
Rye Rye (& Afrikan Boy) remix of M.I.A.’s smash ‘Paper Planes’
’Hardcore Girls’ with The Count & Sinden
‘Get Familiar’ backed by Cobra Krames
and now a mixtape with M.I.A. is in the works
Demonstrating versatility, an abundance of personality and an ability to breathe new life into uptempo rap, a genre that is already popping in every corner of the globe, Rye Rye is ushering in a new generation of artists that love what they do and do what they love.
Having just scorched the stage at Notting Hill Carnival, played dates across Europe and before that coast to coast in the
