The Rhetoriks Short Info

The Rhetoriks are an Electronic Dance music duo made up of Scottish songstress Elle and London born rapper Jay. Their songwriting abilities extend past their main genre, from recording popular cover songs to commercial/urban influenced music which brings out their versatility to the forefront. They formed in late 2013 after a call for collaborators was put out on Twitter, through BBC 1xtra DJ Target's hashtag 'Targets Notice Board' and found that they were featured on the same track through a mutual acquaintance. Together they share an undeniable musical chemistry that has seen them perform at a variety of club venues and festivals, supporting notable names such as Amine Edge & Dance, Oliver Heldens, Juicy M, 2 Faced Funks, Kenneth G, Olly James and many more. Their live shows are full of energy set at a pace that engages crowds resulting in an instantaneous recognizable musical connection.

Their independent debut single 'Take My Soul Away' garnered worldwide support and peaked in the UK Commercial Club Chart at no. 16 ("Getting so many enquires about this track in many venues, Gonna be massive"- DJ Jason Shaughnessy). Their second release 'Yeah I Do' has a dance festival feel and undeniably compliments its predecessor. This essentially propelled their hit to no. 9 in the commercial Club Pop chart, gaining vast support from radio to club DJ's all around the world. They continued to build strong relationships mainly around the Scottish scene, being sought out by many DJ/Producers to write and record vocals over their production.

Having spent time writing and recording songs in the studio and featuring on tracks with various producers globally, they have now seen the release of their debut EP "Our Pain Your Pleasure," geared at bringing a new flare to the growing world of Electronic music. This project features 4 original unreleased tracks that tells a story rolling off the theme of the title, letting the audience gain insight into their emotive persona, while putting the party energy fun over big bass and melodic synth instrumentals. A single release taken from the EP "The Demons You Created" along with the remixes, has gained early support from DJ's Olly James, Jack Eye Jones, KP London and more. The story behind the single can be told through the Anime style music video, by the creative visions at Redsnow Studio.

The Rhetoriks felt the urge to showcase their full abilities on other genres rather than concentrate their full efforts on electronic dance, by releasing a series of free downloadable tracks on their Soundcloud channel, some of which are self produced. This enabled them to explore and gain a wider audience while maintaining their current listeners on their music journey and has proved to be a positive gamble, being sort after by excited producers/DJ's looking for fresh vocal talent. This includes a collaboration with Sean Norvis, who produced the track they feature on "We Love The DJ" and caught the attention of Romanian record label Cat Music, set for a worldwide release. They have continued to go strength to strength being picked out as semi finalists in the 'UK Song Writers Competition' 2016 with their Dementia/Alzheimer suffer inspired song 'Unspoken', with less than 20 percent of the entrants being selected for this stage. The Rhetoriks have worked on their own next single release "Stand Together," which is an urban pop crossover that has a strong commercial appeal with a range of dance genre remixes to keep fans of their earlier releases on board.
