FYI Chris
Elephant Road

Yeah I’m gonna take FYI Chris to the Elephant Road, I’m gonna ride ‘til I can’t no more! Mind you, after the similar titles there’s pretty much nothing that the new EP from this South London dance duo has in common with Lil Nas X’s country-trap smash. Elephant Road takes in a few different styles - D. Tiffany-style psych-house, minimal techno, Tronco Traxx’s Ballroom classic ‘Walk For Me’ - while simultaneously bringing the chill vibes™ that we now expect from any Rhythm Section International release.

Ruf Dug
Ruf Dug presents The Committee

On this genre-blending five-track EP of dub, soul and jazz, Manchester-based record store owner and producer Ruf Dug assembles a cast of friends and musical fellow-travellers to present The Committee. Recorded in less than a fortnight at the collective’s own studio in South London, this short but immensely fun collection is a testament to the powers of collaboration. 

Chaos In The CBD
Midnight In Peckham

When Chaos In The CBD’s Midnight In Peckham first emerged back in 2015, Rhythm Section International was but a promising young imprint with a handful of releases under its belt. Fast forward three years and the RS catalogue numbers almost two-dozen drops on vinyl alone. Despite greater competition for places, this quartet of Motor City Drum Ensemble-esque tunes is still one of the jewels in the label’s crown, and that'll be why it's been re-pressed.

30/70
Elevate

Soulful Melbourne heads 30/70 hook up with Peckham stronghold Rhythm Section to deliver their second album Elevate. It’s a rich, full-bodied big band sound that moves beyond the label’s house leanings to embrace the live musicality that so many of their artists favour. Sounding primed for next year’s festival season, this is a welcome blast of life-affirming sunshine to blow away the dead leaves.

Dan Kye
Joy, Ease, Lightness

Jordan Rakei has a side-project that releases on Rhythm Section International. Makes sense once you think about it. Anyway, Rakei’s work as Dan Kye is much better than the Jeff Buckley-type thing he does under his given name. The four tunes of Joy, Ease, Lightness are breezy deep house shuffles of the Theo Parrish/Moodymann school. Re-pressed just in time to catch the end of summer.

Neue Grafik
Innervision

Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section International have spent a couple of years trying to eke out an EP from Parisian producer Neue Grafik. Finally, they have it in the form of Innervision. The six tracks here pick up from where NG’s excellent 2017 Soul Conspiracy EP left off. Fusing Motor City Drum Ensemble-style Detroit fetishism, beatwork indebted to Karriem Riggins and the jazz-influenced groove music of Moses Boyd and The Comet Is Coming, the result is a record that’ll make ya head nod.

String Theory
Modularity

Brand new duo from Glasgow String Theory slam dunk the funk on their debut EP for Rhythm Section International. You might very well suspect that with a canny title such as Modularity, the music entails some sort of modular synthesis, the musical creation kit de jour. You would be right, of course. But there’s a lot more to this sound - they’ve got the funkiest lounge-jazz bass since Pest, for a start. Beautiful.

Al Dobson Jr.
Rye Lane Versions

Yes, Rhythm Section. We get it. You’re from Peckham. No need to labour the point. This one actually came out in 2014, but such is the British clubsphere’s appetite for sprightly jazz-house from SE that Bradley Zero’s only gone and bloody pressed it again. What we have here are two takes of Al Dobson Jr.’s found-sound beat-smithery fleshed out into slinky 100-bpm jams by Polish duo Ptaki and Mancunian mainstay Ruf Dug.

LT
Forest Floor

Rave revivalism as imagined by Rhythm Section here. Bradley Zero’s imprint tends to keep things chill, so LT’s ‘Where Were You In ‘92?’ vibe is more restrained than, say, the breaks bonanzas of Special Request. However, Forest Floor is replete with jacks, chords and basslines taken from the world of hardcore. They’re just a little more restrained than usual. Think Pender Street Steppers or fellow Rhythm Section protege Mallard.

Retiree
House Or Home

After a couple of singles away from Rhythm Section Intl, Australia’s Retiree return with their debut album, House Or Home. The three-piece have honed their disparate influences to make coherent and credible ‘80s influenced pop with yearning vocals, glacial synth washes and occasional, understated guitar. LP on Rhythm Section Intl.
