ava Records’ Damiano von Erckert returns to the Pool Hall

damiano von e-01.jpg

Damiano von Erckert needs little introduction having played with us a couple of years back but here is one nevertheless to settle the score.

Having run ava. records since 2011 (home to music by Christopher Rau, Max Graef, Am Kinem, Tito Wun…) alongside releasing two fantastic albums over the past 3 years with some great 12″s dotted in-between, Damiano has quickly become the proponent of some our favourite music. Many of those timeless Rhythm Section classics!

Damiano’s fine-ear for sampling and production skills really pay the bills and all it stems no finer a musical upbringing of only quality Soul, Hip Hop, Funk, Afro and Disco thanks to having a DJ dad. Expect all this along with the finest cuts from the german house scene and beyond!

Bossman Bradley Zero is back from travels across the globe; augmented, refreshed and rejuvenated. You know the drill.

Sassy J & John Gomez come to Rhythm Section!

sassyj-johngomezV3hires-01

After the mighty transition into 2016 that was NYE, we have Sassy J & John Gomez to kick off the year.

Sassy J, whose acclaim has risen over the past year, due to a string of fantastic mixes and gigs, is finally coming to the pool hall! Based in Switzerland, she has been running the Patchwork parties (with similarly themed posters!) in Bern for over 9 years. Adding to that she was a Co-Op regular and an RMBA graduate. Not to mention, a fantastic designer, responsible Dego & Kaidi’s cover on their EP for Eglo and the poster! Her wide ranging tastes and discerning ear brought her in company with the likes of Dego, Alex Nut, Harvey Sutherland, Seven Davis Jr and All Caps last year so don’t miss a beat.

John Gomez is the Rush Hour show host on NTS, and runs the Tangent party with Nick the Record. Over the pastyear you will have seen this SE15 collector selector sharing a booth with the likes of Hunee, Invisible City, Antal, Volcov, and Floating Points. Very much in the spirit of Rush Hour, John brings together dance music in all its forms, from cosmic tropical treasures to sweaty mechanical soul.

RUF DUG Returns to Rhythm Section

rufdugfinal.jpg

We first welcomed Ruf Dug to the Pool Hall back in 2012 and this what he had to say:
‘LOOK MAN I DON’T LIKE THIS BIO SHIT… I TRIED A FEW DIFFERENT ONES AND THEY DON’T WORK. MY RECORDS ARE RAW TRACKS FOR THE CLUB THAT FUCK AROUND WITH THE CONCEPT OF COPYRIGHT A BIT BUT NOBODYS MAKING $$$$ SO ITS ALL GOOD. I HAD MY FIRST RECORD ON POPULAR PEOPLES FRONT AND THEN POWERED UP RUF KUTZ, WE DONE A FEW RELEASES NOW AND THEY ALL GO FOR BEADS ON DISCOGS.

I LIVE IN MANCHESTER, IT FUCKIN KILLS UP HERE, WE HAVE A GREAT SCENE. I WAS BORN HERE AND SPENT MOST OF MY LIFE HERE EXCEPT FOR 8 YEARS WHEN I LIVED IN SYDNEY AND GOT INVOLVED WITH SOME MAD WAREHOUSE SQUAT PARTY SCENES.

ME AND SOME CHUMPS DO A PARTY IN MANC CALLED WET PLAY, IT IS FUCKIN DOPE AND YOU SHOULD COME CHECK IT OUT IF YOU LIKE A NICE RAW SWEATY SESSION THAT STICKS TWO FINGERS UP TO THE PONCES AND THE POSERS AND WHATVER IS “HOT”.’

In essence, nothing has changed. Ruf Dug is realler than ever and his gospel of good vibes and eclectic dancefloor bombs is spreading.
Wet Play has been superceded by DANCERS WANTED – the best dance up north and Ruffy now has a popular NTS show and one of the years best albums, ‘ISLAND’ under his belt.

Mr Ruf Dug aka Si, is the cornerstone of everything we stand for and an inspiration for all we aim to blossom into and it is with the utmost pleasure we welcome him back to the dance for the fourth time!

Rhythm Section NYE 2015

nye2015 V3

 

Wow! That went quickly didn’t it?!

It’s that time of year again, where we start making plans for the best way to celebrate the year gone by and welcome in the next one. Luckily for you, the decision just got made WAY easier – Rhythm Section is throwing a party and you’re invited.

Anyone who’s ever been to our NYE dance before will know that it’s a crystal clear, guaranteed-fun-time no brainer.
We don’t buy into the big warehouse/huge line up hype, we do what we do best, with a bit more sparkle and a touch of extra silliness. We pop a few bottles of champagne and encourage you to do the same. We keep it cheap, and we keep it going till the sun comes up.
Most importantly, we bring the vibes in the intimate way that only Rhythm Section can, with a few suprises thrown in for good measure!
In short – this is gonna be one hell of a party – No line up, no hype, just good times dancing with the best people aka YOU, the Rhythm Section Community.

See you on the dance-floor!

Lobster Theremin X Rhythm Section

RS—Poster—Oct 2015 V2 FINAL

It’s time for two of London’s most prolific label heads to meet head to head for a night of eyes down and arms up dancing.
Despite being from the same region of the north of england and having lived in the same city for the best part of the last decade, never have Zero and Asquith’s paths crossed behind the DJ booth.
The time has come to address this…

Lobster Section? Rhythm Theremin? What you call it is not important, what is important is that you come down to the pool hall on 27th November to witness the ying meeting the yang, as two of London’s defining sounds forge a new path together

See you on the Dance-floor

LIVE! Yussef Kamaal Trio, The Brother Moves On (SA) and Duval Timothy at Bussey Building, presented by Peckham Chamber Orchestra + Rhythm Section.

live2

LIVE! is a coming together of two local institutions to provide something new for the community; real live experiences from the best local and international players. Rhythm Section and Peckham Chamber Orchestra (PCO) join forces to present a debut concert of 3 acts which span jazz, classical, hip hop and psychedelic rock from a positively afro-futurist perspective.

The first LIVE! event presents South Africa’s “most important band”, The Brother Moves On (TMBO)- featuring Shabaka Hutchings – MOBO award winning saxophonist with Sons of Kemet alongside Hannah C. Jones on theremin.
The Brother Moves On released their fourth studio album ‘Shiyanomayini’ in October 2015. ‘Shiyanomayini’ is the beginning of the collective’s new project, ‘Black Tax’ which will see TBMO release a track a month for the next 9 months.
Hannah, who will be hosting the event alongside Bradley, is a multi-instrumentalist, artist and conductor of the Peckham Chamber Orchestra.

The Yussef Kamaall Trio is new project of Henry Wu (keys) and Yussef Dayes (drums) featuring Tom Driessler on Bass. The Trio caused a stir after their headline slot at Jazz Refreshed at the Festival Hall and have since played a sold out show at Ronnie Scott’s. The Trio, who regularly collaborate with 22a head honcho Tenderlonious on sax, have also secured a coveted spot at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide awards in January 2016. This is a special chance to see the group in an intimate, local setting, before they go stratospheric.

Duval Timothy, perhaps better known as a published author, artist and chef of the pioneering groundnut dinner collective, is also a pianist, whose solo works have caught the attention of a number of key tastemakers in the city. We welcome the south-east London native here at LIVE! for his debut solo performance.

TICKETS ARE £10 AND ONLY AVAILABLE IN ADVANCE.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND WE ARE NOW HOSTING IN BUSSEY BUILDING, NOT RYE WAX!
