Shades of Rhythm NEWS
Rave on with Shades of Rhythm!

Doyens of of the UK rave scene, Shades of Rhythm were among the most successful and credible dance acts of the 1990s, one of the few to consistently hit the pop charts during the glory days of hardcore dance music.

They signed to ZTT at the turn of the 90s on the strength of the self-released 12" singles and by the end of 1991 S/O/R were at number 14 in the UK singles chart with the Extacy EP (ZANG 24). Their debut album, Shades (ZTT 11, later reissued as The Album) sold over 50,000 copies and all their records were supported by live appearances at legendary 90s raves, like Technodrome and Fantazia, with audiences often topping 10,000.

As part of our ZTT reissue project, Shades has now been given the Salvo treatment; expanded to well over two hours in length by the addition of rare and previously unreleased tracks and remixes. If you have an interest in cutting edge dance music, you owe it to yourself to experience our Extacy edition of Shades of Rhythm!
