Hosted by Tarik Moody from 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, Rhythm Lab Radio redefines the urban sound with a mix of jazz, electronic, hip-hop and soul music. Each week, Rhythm Lab introduces listeners to new artists that are testing boundaries and making music that does not fit neatly into a single box.
Tarik Moody, a graduate of Howard University in Washington D.C., got his first taste of the music industry back in the mid-90s as an intern for cable access music video show, “Sonic Ignition” in Washington D.C. He met and talked to artists such as Chuck D from Public Enemy, Republica and Cypress Hill.
Tarik moved to Minneapolis in 1998 and started volunteering at the local non-commercial radio station KFAI-FM in 1999. Eventually, he connected with DJ Jennifer and became co-host of the station’s long-running show, “Groove Garden.” In 2003, he became one of four hosts for KFAI’s “Local Sound Department.” Two years later, he started hosting his own radio show called Rhythm Lab Radio on Minnesota Public Radio. Since 2006, Tarik has been with 88Nine Radio Milwaukee serving as their Director of Digital Strategy and Innovation, and evening music host.
