Shift of Dignifieds contribute to Add Rhythm Sampler

Add Rhythm Sampler 2013Drift of Signifieds (or is it) joins a host of International Rhythm Stars on the Add Rhythm Sampler, available for free download here.

In 1967 the Harrow based Ad Rhythm Records put out its first three 7 inch singles, entitled Add Rhythm. Rather than featuring complete songs, each of them contained four drum rhythms; two on each side for musicians to “Add Rhythm to your own melody”. The three singles, entitled Dance Time, Pop Time and Latin Time, are a unique example of technological repurposing; it was no longer your gramophone it was now, “the most effective practice aid a musician ever had”.
