Chaos In The CBD - Midnight In Peckham
 
07:04
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS008 Rhythm Section International proudly presents it’s 8th offering from local boys Chaos in the CBD. Born in New Zealand, but based in Peckham for the last few years (literally just around the corner from Henry Wu and Bradley Zero), these brothers have made a real mark on the scene here in London town and with their latest set of productions are set to take this message further afield. Having already released internationally on labels such as ClekClekBoom (Paris), Hot Haus (London) and Amadeus (Montreal), the duo’s approach to production has matured immeasurably in the last year, as is evident in the restrained potency and poetic subtlety on the 4 tracks across this accomplished EP, Midnight in Peckham. Taking it’s title from the locale the boys have come to know as home, the record channels a delicate late night energy - equally indebted to the hypnotic incantations of Ron Trent as it is to the hazy suburban atmospheres of Burial. These 4 classic cuts pay homage to deep house in it’s truest sense - at once sublime, melancholy and meditative . Chaos in the CBD have clearly taken their cue from the mid-west masters of the genre but have not been afraid to let their own influences and environ creep in, and in doing so have created something that is unmistakablely London and infact, timeless.
Pinty - Tropical Bleu  [Rhythm Section INTL Official Video]

Buy or Stream here: rhythmsection.lnk.to/Pinty The new single from PINTY, out now on Rhythm Section INTL This video is loosely based on events that happened in a club in South London in 2016 with Pinty and Andrew Gilman. Directed by Pinty & Ace Marley Shot by Ace Marley Edited by Chris Barnes ( IG: @mrmayhew ) Locations: Andrew Gilman Art by Dr Drowzy & Edie Baker Written and Performed by Pinty Produced by DJ JD SPORTS EP - 'City Limits' out early 2019 With only one self-released EP under his belt, Peckham based Pinty has quickly become the talk of the town. This debut official single is a fresh, MC led approach to the dancefloor. The EP (forthcoming early 2019) traverses UKG, house, funk, Jazz and darker electronic sounds with ease. Given the fluid approach to genre and it’s grounding in Peckham’s vibrant musical scene, the EP feels right at home on Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section International imprint. The first single from the EP, Tropical Bleu is a broken beat jazz tinged roller which sees Pinty gliding effortlessly backwards, launching into the rat race...

Henry Wu - Croydon Depot
 
03:48
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS007 After a string of well received releases on the likes of 22a and Alexander Nut’s Hotep, Henry Wu steps forth with his most bold statement to date with ‘Good Morning Peckham’ on the Rhythm Section International Imprint. Arguably one of the most hotly-tipped producers in the UK right now, Wu’s broken compositions and deep jazzy keys have earned him plaudits from scene veterans as well as peers, all keen to see what Henry will do next. With a refreshing take on rhythm and a virtuosic musicality born out of years of recording and touring as a session player, Henry Wu represents a brightly shining light in the already glowing London community. Equally adept on the keyboard as he is on the MPC, on Good Morning Peckham, we are also given a further insight into the mind of Wu as he takes to the mic - toasting along to the soon-to-be-classic ‘ Croydon Depot’. A South East Londoner born and bred, Henry’s debut on Rhythm Section was a long time coming and it seems that it was worth the wait. 6 tracks of white hot intention. Henry Wu is a name that we’re going to hear a lot more of in the future….

Mallard - Verte
 
07:29
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS019 Making a splash with RS019 is a newcomer called Mallard. Discovered by Bradley after being front and centre for almost every RS dance since 2016, the South London based producer and multi-instrumentalist makes a serious first impression with his debut EP ‘ VERTE’. Currently studying Jazz Double-Bass at Trinity School of Music, Mallard’s productions demonstrate a keen ear for groove with a level of musicality rarely heard in electronic productions. At just 20 years old, he has already developed a unique sound palette and prodigious production style set to make him a name we will only hear more of in the years to come. This EP, at once varied in tone and tempo is held together by a strong sonic identity and an overarching artistic vision: from the morphing polyrhythmic percussion of ‘Surface’ to the shifting, heady pattern of ‘Aquitaine’ via the psychedelic breaks of ‘Untitled’ we are taken on quite the trip. Equally at ease on the dance-floor as it would be for an introverted headphone session, Mallard’s first offering to the world via Rhythm Section is one to remember. A timeless classic from the Rhythm Section team!

Prequel - Saints feat. Cazeaux O.S.L.O
 
06:39
http://RhythmSection.lnk.to/rs013 Prequel's back with more of the soulful, jazz-tinged productions that got our attention first time round with his debut EP, our 3rd release: 'POLITE STRANGERS'. The record proved a hit with the likes of Gilles Peterson, Osunlade, Recloose, Mister Saturday Night, Ben UFO and garnered a cult following amongst music lovers, spreading the word of the label farther afield in the process. Holding the fort as Rhythm Section ambassador down under, Prequel has stepped things up for his sophomore EP, incorporating spoken word, subtle vocal lines and the same instrumental flourishes that drew us in the first time round. This is a record with a message, a record that speaks from the soul, an homage and above all a very serious artistic statement. We are proud to present Freedom Jazz Dance as our 13th offering on RS INTL.

Al Dobson Jr - Peru Timing Pt 2
 
04:13
Bandcamp: bit.ly/RS010Bandcamp iTunes: smarturl.it/RS010 Al Dobson Jr. returns to Rhythm Section International with his debut full length LP. Spread over 28 tracks and clocking in at just under one hour, this body of work provides a glimpse into the mind of one of the UK’s most talented, enigmatic producers. Al Dobson’s debut mini album marked the inauguration of Bradley Zero’s fledgling label back in 2014, proving to be a breath of fresh air to the london scene with it’s loose, undefinable sound and unique approach to production. As a newcomer, Al Dobson Jr.’s music didn’t remain a secret for long, with major global tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson, Theo Parrish, Dego, Alex Nut and Osunlade being early adopters. As with other key releases on 22a and Izwid, it didn’t take long for Rye Lane Volume 1 to go from obscure debut to cult classic, propelling the artist and the label onto the international platform. At once a continuation and evolution of the sound, Rye Lane Volumes II & III offers a deeper exploration into the Al Dobson Jr universe, moving with ease through tempos and textures but never losing that effortless magic that makes ADJ stand out from the crowd.
Retiree - Pumice Stone (Official Video)
 
05:09
Rhythm Section INTL's latest release comes from Australian band Retiree with their new single ‘Pumice Stone’. Buy/Stream: rhythmsection.lnk.to/PumiceStone This first track from their upcoming album recounts a day when Tori was walking along the beach and dozens of dead birds had washed up on the sand. “Apparently this was the time when Mutton Birds pass Sydney on their annual 10,000km migration. They’re increasingly dying at sea and washing up on the beach because of overfishing, marine pollution and changing weather conditions. This song is a reflection on how that made me feel, on my lifestyle and human impact on the environment.” The video is shot in the time warped store room of Franco Cozzo in Footscray, Melbourne.

Silentjay & Jace XL - Sacrifice
 
04:48
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS011 Coming straight out of melbourne with plentiful attitude, Producer/multi-instrumentalist Silentjay teams up with fellow Hiatus Kaiyote backing vocalist, Jace XL to present 'Sacrifice', a mini album of epic proportions. At once sincere and heartfelt, the songs do not shy away from the playful influence of 90s RnB - a sound that is a defining influence on this EP, which despite clocking in at just under 30 minutes, attains a level of artistry and conceptual cohesiveness that many artists could only dream of. Another VERY serious record from an impossibly fertile Melbourne Scene that is quickly becoming the envy of the world.
Hidden Spheres - Your Effect
 
06:14
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS012 Rhythm Section International’s 12th release comes from another Mancunian called Tom, this time going by the name of Hidden Spheres. We are issuing a * FEEL­GOOD HIT OF THE SUMMER* alert for the title track, ‘Well, Well’, ­a certified, yet sophisticated banger, ready to send that festival crowd one step closer to transcendence. A versatile EP spanning over 5 tracks, Well Well is a house­tinged, jazzy affair ­ rich in soulful vocals, summery chords and live percussion. Hidden Spheres is a seasoned dj and producer, having released on the likes of Moods & Grooves alongside Theo Parrish, Andrés, MR. G and Moodymann as well as producing the inaugural release for Lobster Theremin imprint Distant Hawaii. With a wealth of records ready to go, constrained only by pressing plant schedules, RS012 marks the first in a flurry of summer releases on Rhythm Section International.
Retiree - Another Day (Official Video)
 
04:20
Buy/Stream: https://rhythmsection.lnk.to/HouseOrHome ‘Another Day’ is the latest single from Australian group Retiree’s forthcoming album ‘House Or Home’, set for release by Rhythm Section International on 21st September 2018. Director - Joey Knox DOP - Jesse Gohier-Fleet Camera assistant - Nathan Guy Editors - Josh Chiodo & Joey Knox Colour Grade - Abe Wynen Movement director - Harrison Richie-Jones Cast - Steve Tucker Big thanks to David Hines for the epic location! The musical project of Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman and Marco Vella; Retiree have steadily congealed their broad influences into a unique emulsion of strongly rhythmic and emotional music. From two releases, they’ve been described as “pared back 1980s comfort pop for all occasions” by NOISEY, having “a whole lot of criss-crossing rhythm” by The FADER and containing “swirling synth flourishes, languid wistful vocals and strutting drum machine funk” by The 405. The album’s songs explore the theme of “house or home” and what that means in present day Australia for different people. They journey from an aboriginal tent embassy on the south coast of New South Wales, a retirement village, a one room flat in Ringwood and - for ‘Another Day’ - a sleepless 17 hour stop over in Malaysia. “The lyrics in Another Day are a sort of stream of consciousness I wrote after a 17 hour stop over in Malaysia when we decided to chuck our bags in a locker at the airport, spending the night roaming around the city rather than forking out for a shitty hotel room. I remember lots of walking, heaps of really sick, hotted up mopeds, late night foot spas and being booted out of a shopping mall for snoozing on the lobby couches.” - Tori Holleman Retiree have teamed up with director Joey Knox and cinematographer Jesse Gohier-Fleet to create a series of interconnected film clips. Unraveling an intricate web of stories, the visuals pair seamlessly with the songs. “In the Another Day video we see Steve, the reoccurring protagonist in the trilogy of film clips we made for the album, in a dreamlike state. He traverses a surreal, timeless landscape, dancing solo, but full of emotion as if he’s thinking about his love” - Joey Knox

The second release from Australian band Retiree on Rhythm Section INTL's is new single ‘Magic Eye’. Buy/Stream: rhythmsection.lnk.to/HouseOrHome The latest track from their forthcoming album is a love song that bridges the end of a relationship. “It was really nice teaming up with Becky (Sui Zhen) to finish this one. We started writing the song before a break up and finished it after it ended. It’s a strange time to write a song. I feel like from the start, the tone of the song was kind of indicative of the situation.” Retiree have teamed up with director Joey Knox and cinematographer Jesse Gohier-Fleet to create a series of interconnected film clips. Unraveling an intricate web of stories, the visuals pair seamlessly with the songs. “Joey Knox has done an amazing job at interpreting the song in his own way with this wild clip on Steve’s farm where we become interstellar observers of a relationship between a lone ranger and an alien visitor.” Director: Joey Knox Cinematographer: Jesse Gohier- Fleet AC’s: Nathan Guy, Lachlan Wright, Taylan Ceylan Cast: Steve Tucker, Sally Lull 1st AD: Haisley Doidge Colour Grade: Abe Wynen Costume Design: Jacki Staude VFX Ashley Blenkinsop

03:28
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS009 Rhythm Section International present their 9th offering, from Mancunian newcomer 'Contours’. ‘Technician' is a percussion led rhythmic exploration, spanning 6 tracks which take in down-tempo grooves to up-beat workouts, all held together by a smooth, lucid sonic palette and arresting, unorthodox live percussive elements. Already an accomplished drummer and percussionist, Contours manages to combine driving rhythm, lush textures and hypnotic melodies to create a sound that feels very much at home as part of the Rhythm Section imprint, while simultaneously pushing it forward into new, undiscovered territory. One for the Heads, one for the Dancers, one for the warm up, one for the afterparty.

Chaos In The CBD - Observe Pt. 2
 
06:16
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS014 South London favourites Chaos in the CBD come back to Rhythm Section International one year after their breakthrough EP ‘Midnight in Peckham’. The original EP captured a moment in time in a way few songs can manage. It was hailed as a masterpiece, capturing the attention of all who listened, as evidenced by the unquenchable demand for the 12”. This follow up EP is an equally sublime collection of tracks that revel in the late night soulful feel that Chaos in The CBD have been honing over the past two years. The music’s strength lies in it’s subtlety - the tracks demand your attention in an effortless fashion and hold it, right ‘til the last beat. Another unbelievably powerful record from a pair of young producers set to take the world by storm.

https://rhythmsection.lnk.to/RS017 Jordan Rakei burst onto the scene when he arrived in London on New Years Eve 2014. After a 24 hour flight taking him to the other side of the world, Jordan came straight to the pool hall to bring in the New Year with Rhythm Section. This is where the journey began. Joy, Ease, Lightness is a 4 track EP aimed squarely at the dancefloor, but with a meditative awareness that reaches far beyond the club. Fans of Seven Davis Jr, Steve Spacek et al, watch out - there’s a new man in town: and he goes by the name of Dan Kye.
Chaos In The CBD - Common Unity Feat. Archie Pelago
 
05:09
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS008 Rhythm Section International proudly presents it’s 8th offering from local boys Chaos in the CBD. Born in New Zealand, but based in Peckham for the last few years (literally just around the corner from Henry Wu and Bradley Zero), these brothers have made a real mark on the scene here in London town and with their latest set of productions are set to take this message further afield. Having already released internationally on labels such as ClekClekBoom (Paris), Hot Haus (London) and Amadeus (Montreal), the duo’s approach to production has matured immeasurably in the last year, as is evident in the restrained potency and poetic subtlety on the 4 tracks across this accomplished EP, Midnight in Peckham. Taking it’s title from the locale the boys have come to know as home, the record channels a delicate late night energy - equally indebted to the hypnotic incantations of Ron Trent as it is to the hazy suburban atmospheres of Burial. These 4 classic cuts pay homage to deep house in it’s truest sense - at once sublime, melancholy and meditative . Chaos in the CBD have clearly taken their cue from the mid-west masters of the genre but have not been afraid to let their own influences and environ creep in, and in doing so have created something that is unmistakablely London and infact, timeless.

https://rhythmsection.lnk.to/RS016 We're very happy to present to you the debut nine track release from Duke Hugh just as the artist intended, in the same form it was given to Bradley on a green USB stick in December 2015. Each song has its own essence, there is absolutely no filler and the entire double pack sits together as a perfect whole. Flirting with aspects of broken beat, Jazz, hip hop and dreamy electronica - Duke Hugh winds together a most idiosyncratic release equally at home on the peak time dancefloor as it would be for a long road trip. Canvas is a big statement from an artist who's here to stay.
Retiree - Gundagai

https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS006 Drawing from the leftfield avant-pop of Arthur Russell and Talking Heads, progressive disco of Nile Rodgers and contemporary ambient electronica, Retiree channel these influences through their own pervasive aura of rum-drunk antipodean sunshine. The result is music that is in equal parts lush, thoughtful melody and meditative tropical rhythm. The EP sees joint international release between Rhythm Section International and Plastic World - purveyors of southern hemisphere groove-driven underground pop (GL, Savoir).

https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS011 Coming straight out of melbourne with plentiful attitude, Producer/multi-instrumentalist Silentjay teams up with fellow Hiatus Kaiyote backing vocalist, Jace XL to present 'Sacrifice', a mini album of epic proportions. At once sincere and heartfelt, the songs do not shy away from the playful influence of 90s RnB - a sound that is a defining influence on this EP, which despite clocking in at just under 30 minutes, attains a level of artistry and conceptual cohesiveness that many artists could only dream of.

Prequel - You Shall Know The Truth
 
06:41
http://RhythmSection.lnk.to/rs013 Prequel's back with more of the soulful, jazz-tinged productions that got our attention first time round with his debut EP, our 3rd release: 'POLITE STRANGERS'. The record proved a hit with the likes of Gilles Peterson, Osunlade, Recloose, Mister Saturday Night, Ben UFO and garnered a cult following amongst music lovers, spreading the word of the label farther afield in the process. Holding the fort as Rhythm Section ambassador down under, Prequel has stepped things up for his sophomore EP, incorporating spoken word, subtle vocal lines and the same instrumental flourishes that drew us in the first time round. This is a record with a message, a record that speaks from the soul, an homage and above all a very serious artistic statement. We are proud to present Freedom Jazz Dance as our 13th offering on RS INTL.

Retiree - House Or Home [complete album]

Buy/Stream: https://rhythmsection.lnk.to/HouseOrHome Australian group Retiree return to Rhythm Section INTL in 2018 with a new record ‘House Or Home’. The musical project of Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman and Marco Vella; Retiree have steadily congealed their broad influences into a unique emulsion of strongly rhythmic and emotional music. From two releases, they’ve been described as “pared back 1980s comfort pop for all occasions”, having “a whole lot of criss-crossing rhythm”, containing “swirling synth flourishes, languid wistful vocals and strutting drum machines". The album’s songs explore the theme of “house or home” and what that means in present day Australia for different people. They journey from an aboriginal tent embassy on the south coast of New South Wales, a retirement village, a one room flat in Ringwood and a sleepless 17 hour stop over in Malaysia. credits releases September 21, 2018 Written & Produced by Retiree. Retiree is Marco Vella, Tori Holleman, Matt Crowley.

String Theory - Con Moto
 
05:33
https://rhythmsection.lnk.to/RS021 Rhythm Section INTL continues its quest to unearth the rawest new talent with this stellar debut from Glaswegian duo ‘String Theory’. Opening up with the majestic ‘Dirty High’ we’re treated to a symphony of modular synthesis, swelling strings and the bounciest drums we’ve heard in a long time. Rarely has house music been so fun yet so musical. Live bass-tip toes over an ocean of synth stabs and piano chords to create an anthemnic track that’s sure to be the soundtrack to long summer nights and early mornings…. We don’t know where the RS crew keep finding these gems, but long may it continue. String theory tick so many boxes we just can’t wait to hear more...
LT - Mesosphere
 
05:31
Buy/Stream: https://rhythmsection.lnk.to/ForestFloor After a debut outing on our sister label International Black last year with his best friend Mallard, LT graduates onto Rhythm Section INTL with a stunning debut solo effort: FOREST FLOOR. Aged just 20 years old, Lewis Taylor aka LT is another prodigal talent from the north of England, whose association with Rhythm Section goes back to his school days. A fan of the label from an early age, Lewis regularly made pilgrimages to the pool hall as soon as he was old enough to do so. It was these visits with his old school friend Mallard (who had recently moved down to London from Derbyshire to study music) which proved to be a formative influence, prompting him to try his hand at production...It turned out he was quite the natural, with his second ever effort as an 18 year old making it onto this very EP. Sitting somewhere between electro, house and techno with a healthy dose of breaks - LT constructs complex arrangements with as much of a nod to the retro summer of love stylings of Lone as to the new age bounce of the Pender Street Steppers. The piano house stabs of ‘Untitled (Chesney)’ reverberate around chopped breaks and screaming samples, anchored down by bouncy organ bass and FM lead synth which really begs the question: ‘How did LT develop such a rich lexicon of club culture references in such a short time?’ We’d be tempted to believe it was just pure luck, if this mastery of rave aesthetics wasn’t repeated throughout the EP... Mesosphere fizzes with arpeggiated energy before giving way to a magnificent yet subtle drop that will serve festival main stages as well as it will back room clubs. Before the EP is over, LT has one more trick up his sleeve in Forest Floor - the titular track which is the musical equivalent of watching the sun rise through a misty glade after a night spent alone in the wilderness. With this gentle touch, LT proves he’s more than another kid on Abelton making bangers - he has breadth, incredible musicality and a rare ability to transcript sceneries into sounds. Finishing with ‘North Circular’ possibly a reference to the free Parties on the London Orbital or merely just a coincidence... you decide. We couldn’t be happier to welcome LT onto the RS INTL roster in what feels like a fulfilment of destiny. It’s such a great honour to have nurtured and now introduce the next generation via the Rhythm Section platform. credits released July 27, 2018 All songs written and produced by Lewis Taylor. Additional Production by Bradley Zero & Mali Baden-Powell on Mesosphere & North Circular @ Rhythm Section Studio
Mallard - Surface
 
05:44
https://RhythmSection.lnk.to/RS019 Making a splash with RS019 is a newcomer called Mallard. Discovered by Bradley after being front and centre for almost every RS dance since 2016, the South London based producer and multi-instrumentalist makes a serious first impression with his debut EP ‘ VERTE’. Currently studying Jazz Double-Bass at Trinity School of Music, Mallard’s productions demonstrate a keen ear for groove with a level of musicality rarely heard in electronic productions. At just 20 years old, he has already developed a unique sound palette and prodigious production style set to make him a name we will only hear more of in the years to come. This EP, at once varied in tone and tempo is held together by a strong sonic identity and an overarching artistic vision: from the morphing polyrhythmic percussion of ‘Surface’ to the shifting, heady pattern of ‘Aquitaine’ via the psychedelic breaks of ‘Untitled’ we are taken on quite the trip. Equally at ease on the dance-floor as it would be for an introverted headphone session, Mallard’s first offering to the world via Rhythm Section is one to remember. A timeless classic from the Rhythm Section team!

Bandcamp: bit.ly/RS010Bandcamp iTunes: smarturl.it/RS010 Al Dobson Jr. returns to Rhythm Section International with his debut full length LP. Spread over 28 tracks and clocking in at just under one hour, this body of work provides a glimpse into the mind of one of the UK’s most talented, enigmatic producers. Al Dobson’s debut mini album marked the inauguration of Bradley Zero’s fledgling label back in 2014, proving to be a breath of fresh air to the london scene with it’s loose, undefinable sound and unique approach to production. As a newcomer, Al Dobson Jr.’s music didn’t remain a secret for long, with major global tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson, Theo Parrish, Dego, Alex Nut and Osunlade being early adopters. As with other key releases on 22a and Izwid, it didn’t take long for Rye Lane Volume 1 to go from obscure debut to cult classic, propelling the artist and the label onto the international platform. At once a continuation and evolution of the sound, Rye Lane Volumes II & III offers a deeper exploration into the Al Dobson Jr universe, moving with ease through tempos and textures but never losing that effortless magic that makes ADJ stand out from the crowd.
