Rye Rye: Dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum

Rye Rye ©
Band: Rye Rye
Origin: Baltimore, Maryland, US
Genre: Hip hop, pop, rap

A bit different from Blind Blimp’s usual band profiles, Rye Rye is firstly, not a band but a person – Ryeisha Berrain, an American rapper and dancer to be exact – and secondly she brings the hip hop pop, not the rock. She has been punted and mentored by the awesome M.I.A for a number of years and featured in a number of club hits. But Rye Rye has now dropped her debut album. Self-described as “unique and hard-hitting”, Rye Rye’s sound is inspired by her Baltimore club rap and dance style.

Rolling Stone described Bang as “gloriously showoffy”. Commercial, yes, hardcore, yes, distinctly likeable, yes, party music, hell yeah! Sunshine will get anyone moving, smiling and singing “Dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum” no matter how pretentious and serious they are about their music! Or, maybe it's just me...

Album: Go! Pop! Bang! [2011]
Singles: Shake it To The Ground (DJ Blaqstarr and Rye Rye), Tic Toc (Busy Signal featuring Rye Rye and M.I.A.), Bang (featuring M.I.A.), Sunshine (featuring M.I.A.)

Resembles: M.I.A
