Your musical guides are DJ's Cuba and Dres DJ who also play percussion live in the mix creating a mosaic of culture along with a tribe of visual artists, singers, poets and more that make up Ritmo Y Tumbao.

Exclusive preview of their new album "Ay Dios Mio" produced by Josh Milan for Honeycomb Music.

 We'll explore the new album titled after the same name of the weekly party produced by Dres Ramos aka DJ Dres to be released on Josh Milan's (BLAZE) Honeycomb Music.

As a child of the 70s, Dres grew up in the South East Bronx district of New York City around family members who listened to everything from Salsa to Jazz to Disco to Rock. After witnessing a mid to late 70's Bronx Hip Hop street jam and amazed at the way the DJ moved the crowd, Dres knew music would be in his future. Dres was Inspired by the likes of DJ's & Producers like Francois Kevorkian, Larry Levan, Shep Pettibone, Louie Vega, Afrika Bambaataa, Jazzy Jay, Red Alert, Aldo Marin, Marley Marl, Tony Humphries, Joe Claussell & The Latin Rascals...

After jamming on percussion and dj'ing at mobile parties, he came upon a Ritmo Y Tumbao party and improvised as he does on percussion and organically grew right into the crew to become a member.
