About Polarity/1

You have entered the POLARITY/1 Zone -- beat science for curved dancefloor. Unfasten your seatbelts. The music of Polarity/1 is exactly what the name suggests: conjoined opposites - a mash-up of new: cutting edge electronica/hip hop/nu-jazz and old: roots music of America (blues, funk, country, early jazz), Brazil (samba, pagode, etc.) and West African groove science. "Polar succeeds in his mission of forcing you to pay attention and not lull into the sounds you 'expect' to hear," noted (expired link)

After a few years of playing percussion in samba bands at (expired link) and other venues, Polar landed in hip hop which combined his interests in grooves, samples and wordplay into one form. He and rapper (expired link). became Medicine Crew. In the aftermath of 9/11 Polar was asked to do a remix for Nile Rodgers' We Are Family Project released on a compilation by Tommy Boy Records.

His experience of 9/11 which was perpetrated in his neighborhood led to a collaboration with multi-platinum Pakistan rock band Junoon resulting in their hit song 'No More'. Polarity/1's CD, 'Speechless', which was nominated Best Electronica Album by Just Plain Folks, included four instrumentals choreographed by New York's Battery Dance Company in November 2006 and Quorum Ballet of Lisbon.
