Riktam & Bansi have come to be known under a variety of monikers over the last decade, having achieved their greatest success so far under their Growling Mad Scientists project, with a total of eight artist albums, tracks appearing on over 150 releases and more than 200,000 album sales, their studio wizardry is unquestionable. Normally known for a more driving sound, the "Riktam & Bansi" project sees them embark in a different direction, towards a style which encompasses a slower more groove-oriented techno backbone.
(This page has music from two different artists. The following bio is for Redux (formerly Ripplegroove), the jazz/rock/funk band from New York)... Redux is so prone to change, even their name isn't sacred. Since 2001 the band has gone through four personnel line-ups, three hometowns, and four names. Recently, Redux found themselves in their most extreme state of renewal yet. One year after the release of their debut record Under The Microscope (2006) reached #14 on the CMJ Jazz Charts and #9 on Jambands.
