SON OF SOUND
With a discography of releases dating back to 1991, New York native Henry Maldonado credits his home city as inspiration and motivation for his art. As part of the House 2 House trio on Strictly Rhythm, Maldonado and crew would fire out a relentless assault of New York style sampled and deep house tracks coveted by New York mainstays Little Louie Vega, Kenny Dope Gonzalez, Tony Humphries, Roger Sanchez, Timmy Regisford and many others. Producing tracks would quickly lead to vocal projects and song writing with a slew of notable vocalists such as Karen Pollack, Arnold Jarvis, Carol Sylvan, Wanda Nash and Bobby Harding to name a few. In the mid 1990s his solo Rhythm Section projects found homes on Masters At Work records, Henry Street and King Street, and his recent Native Underground project with singer Javi (Javi Silva) masterfully combines early '80s R&B, soul, hip-hop, electro-funk and house. Today Henry produces and DJs under Son Of Sound and continues to push the limits of the underground by taking his knowledge of the past, combining it with a deep love for the city he grew up in and a penchant for quality underground club culture. If it sounds like his music and playing style has New York written all over it - it does.
