After a year of further developing their distinct sound, the band recorded their first full-length album. The resulting “Labrador” is a 9-song powerhouse full of brooding dance grooves, and catchy layered horn melodies. “Labrador” was recorded at Sleng Teng Studios ,specifically for it’s vintage sound, and the recording process was very similar to their approach on the EP: “live” in one room, just like the greats of yester-year. “Labrador” debuted internationally on June 1st 2011 to critical acclaim and established a place at the ever crowded “funk” table for this fast-moving , powerhouse of a band. DJ’s worldwide, have been clamoring for a vinyl release from Polyrhythmics, and on 11.11.11 , the band is set to release their 1st 45rpm 7-inch record on the Kept Records label. This non-stop dance floor banger features special arrangements of the song “Imposter” on the A side , and the live show favorite “Klompton” on the B-side. Drawing from modern influences such as the Budos Band and The Whitefield Brothers as well as their original influences, Fela Kuti, and James Brown, “Labrador” is a shining example of the chemistry between these 8 talented performers and why, in a seemingly endless sea of new funk bands, Polyrhythmics is the band everyone is talking about.

  • Biography Seattle world-reggae-rockers kicked off 2011 with a live in-studio performance on KEXP 90.3 FM in January that peaked at #19 on the station’s Top Live Performances chart, falling right below Death Cab For Cutie. Kore Ionz finished off the set, hosted by Kid Hops, with a world premiere of the title track from the Love You Better EP, self-released on May 28, 2011. In late June 2011 “Love You Better” went on heavy rotation on KPVS Native FM on the Big Island of Hawai’i, staying on their Daily Top 5 for nearly two months, hitting the #1 most requested spot in the middle of July. The band flew out to Hawai’i for some immediate radio promotion, including a live in-studio on KDNN Island 98.5 on Honolulu with Phat Joe and The Reggae Café. On August 20, 2011 Kore Ionz self-released the long-anticipated World War Free. Featuring production by Mell Dettmer (Femi Kuti, Clinton Fearon), the full-length opens a dialogue on how our history has shaped the present state of the world, and how our actions will ultimately shape the future. Prometheus Brown of renowned Seattle hip-hop duo Blue Scholars makes a special guest appearance on the single “First Avenue.” Kore Ionz have shared the stage with The Wailers, Steel Pulse, Third World, Ky-Mani Marley, Katchafire, J Boog, and two-time Grammy award winner Common.
