Song of the Day: Rhythm Saints - L.A. Story (Hundred Thousand Lights)

By in News, Song of The Day | No Comments

While the alternative rock revolution was exploding all over the 90s, another musical genre was becoming ever more expansive in the same decade–electronica. Faith-based artists were pursuing new subgenres from house to techno/rave to EBM and lots of other styles.

One pioneering artist in the house genre was Rhythm Saints, comprised of husband Stephen Nixon and wife Lee-Jane Nixon. Although Stephen was British born, the couple were based in Los Angeles, whence their inspiration for this track emerges. While most of the album channeled house and progressive house sounds, this track (incidentally the only one I could find from their debut via YouTube) dabbles pleasantly in ambient as well.

The group released three albums for Scott Blackwell’s N*Soul Records, and “L.A. Story” is taken from their excellent deepsustainedboomingsounds.
