- The City Rikshaw N' The Ruckus 2:54
NYC’s own Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus are set to release their debut album, but before that, they have a solid taster in the form of ‘The City’. A raucous mix and fusion of rock and hip hop, Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus is mixed to mash through the speakers with a track that stays with you and thumps your memory from time to time. I’ve always been a fan of Rikshaw and now to see him in a band, to me, sounds like a logical evolution.
Their album will arrive soon.
About Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus
Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus is a New York-based band with Hip Hop, Rock, and Blues influences that started at the end. Solo Hip Hop Artist Rikshaw was preparing for a Release Party for his concept EP ‘Gem.In.I’ when a chance meeting with bassist Krisana Soponpong (previously of Black Taxi) created a duo, and Krisana’s know-how and musical connections brought in guitarist Krikor Daglian (previously of The Walk Ons) and drummer Stavros Pavlides (Kindnesse).
With these very talented multi-instrumentalists, the release party show for Gem.In.I went over better than any of them could have expected. What was originally going to be a one-off was quickly pushed to the side from the feeling that a real sound was developing and Rikshaw N’ The Ruckus was formed!
The band has already written and recorded new original songs and played multiple shows in Manhattan and Brooklyn. They look to continue performing around New York and beyond with The City being their inaugural single.
