Rhythmic Contemporary

Rhythmic contemporary, also known as rhythmic top 40, rhythmic contemporary hit radio or rhythmic crossover, is a music radio format that includes a mix of EDM, upbeat rhythmic pop, hip-hop and R&B hits. Rhythmic contemporary rarely uses rock music or country music in its airplay, but it may occasionally use a reggae, Latin, reggaeton, or a Christian/gospel hit. Essentially the format is a cross between Top 40/Mainstream radio and urban contemporary radio.

Famous quotes containing the words rhythmic and/or contemporary:

    O birds, your perfect virtues bring,
    Your song, your forms, your rhythmic flight,
    Your manners for your heart’s delight,
    Nestle in hedge, or barn, or roof,
    Here weave your chamber weather-proof,
    Forgive our harms, and condescend
    To man, as to a lubber friend,
    And, generous, teach his awkward race
    Courage, and probity, and grace!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Literature that is not the breath of contemporary society, that dares not transmit the pains and fears of that society, that does not warn in time against threatening moral and social dangers—such literature does not deserve the name of literature; it is only a fa├žade. Such literature loses the confidence of its own people, and its published works are used as wastepaper instead of being read.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)
