Ritmo Y Tumbao: Available on all digital platforms!


The groundbreaking duo Ritmo y Tumbao, comprised of NYC's own Dres Ramos and Cuba Ulacia, releases their incredible debut full-length album Ay Dios Mio on Honeycomb Music. Ramos and Ulacia-- passionate percussionists, songwriters and DJs in their own right-- have created an instant classic that organically combines Afro-Cuban, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Soul, and House Music under the dynamic production of Grammy-nominated, multi-talented Honeycomb CEO Josh Milan, who also lends his quintessential vocals to the project along with singers Crystal Jaye and Storm Marrero, with accompaniments by flutist Giovanni Perez.

Ay Dios Mio is a life-giving project epitomizing what music needs to be about now more than ever-- live musicianship, melodic songwriting, breathtaking vocals and multi-layered harmonies. Every track on the album uniquely stands out yet works in tandem with the others to paint a refreshing musical journey with Ritmo y Tumbao's percussive rhythms at the core.

These songs will dance in your soul and beat with your heart whether "listening at home, in the car, or in the club," says Honeycomb's Josh Milan. Ritmo y Tumbao's Ay Dios Mio firmly stands at a musical crossroads where Earth Wind and Fire intersects with the legendary sounds of both Fania and Stax Records, and effortlessly picks up the torch where iconic Blaze Productions left off.

link >> tinyurl.com/ForMeLP

Honeycomb Music is extremely proud to present the highly anticipated debut album from Billboard chart-topping artist and the Queen of Gospel Energy, Dawn Tallman. "For Me," the LP, is the culmination of 4 years of work, detailing personal experiences of triumph over adversity. Dawn Tallman brings us an incredibly produced album, chock full of poignant messages for the soul.

The title track has been taking over dance floors since its 2015 release and now her debut album takes it to the next level. For Dawn, this is an enormous labor of love. "Each song has its own life experience. I've been so grateful to know that songs like "For Me" and "Celebrate Myself" are being heard during someone's bout with depression or another's battle with cancer. When you hear this album, my sincere hope is that you know you are not alone. Whatever your circumstances, you can triumph over it. You can do it... and whatever is going on, know that happiness is a choice!"
