ERASMUS TOUR 2016 with Delfonic, Muff Deep & Bradley Zero

oyetarteletrsPECKHAMhires-01

Tartlet, Rhythm Section, Money $ex.
3 labels, 3 cities, 3 selectors.
The trio behind these labels will join forces for a cultural exchange program of epic proportions across Copenhagen, London and Berlin.

“ERASMUS TOUR 2016”
featuring Muff Deep, Bradley Zero & Delfonic.
The Tour, which was born out of mutual appreciation and overlapping taste, will see each label head play host to the others in their hometowns.
The Labels, whose combined rosters include the likes of Henry Wu, Max Graef, Glenn Astro, Al Dobson Jr & Wayne Snow, all exist in the delightfully grey area between jazz, soul, house and hip hop. We thought it was about time to throw these 3 tastemakers together and see what happens….

Pender Street Steppers Return to Canavans

pss16Posterhires-01.jpg

Rhythm Sectiom Regulars will be no strangers to The Pender Street Steppers. The duo of Jack J & Liam Butler are captains of the now world conquering Moodhut collective hailing from Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada.

It all began on Pender Street itself, when Bradley Zero went to visit the guys in Vancouver to see what was popping: https://boilerroom.tv/session/boiler-room-x-mood-hut/
Since then, an inter-continental relationship has evolved and we have welcomed almost all of the crew to play at the Pool hall, from hashman to bluntman, local artist to Jack J. There’s still a few blank spaces left before we have welcomed the entire crew, but in the mean time, we are most excited to welcome Jack and Liam aka THE PENDER STREET STEPPERS back to Peckham for an extended pool hall get down.

This is bound to be a roadblock, get down early, enjoy the whole journey.

LIVE! with Swooping Duck, SilentJay x Jace XL & Shepherd

LIVE_2_FINAL.jpg

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 once again to present an international trio of live musical offerings.

After the incredible success of our first LIVE show last year featuring Yussef Kamaal, The Brother Moves On and Duval Timothy, we are pleased to present a very special show, featuring 2 of Australias most vital outfits, with support from an ascendent local artist in the form of 22a Music‘s Shepherd.

Swooping Duck
Paul Bender, Simon Mavin and Perrin Moss are 3 of Australias finest musicians, flying free on 100% improv mode: No music, no tunes, zero material to fall back on. Just ears, adrenaline, focus, being in the moment, pure improvisation.
When not blowing minds-on-the fly with their Swooping Duck side project, Bender, Simon & Perrin form the backbone of 2 x Grammy nominated outfit, and our favourite band in the entire world – Hiatus Kaiyote.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear this music for the first, last and only time.
Our man Bradley Zero was Lucky enough to see the trio at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, and we can confrim that his mind was indeed, blown. Musicianship of the highest callibre – not to be missed!

S I L E N T J A Y x JACE XL

Coming straight out of Melbourne with plentiful attitude, Producer/multi-instrumentalist Silentjay has teamed up with fellow Hiatus Kaiyote backing vocalist, Jace XL to present their unique strain of future leaning, retro rooted R&B.
Their Debut Mini-Album, ‘Sacrifice’, drops on our very own Rhythm Section INTL label mid April and is already causing something of a stir. The more devoted fans amongst you may have already grabbed one of the limited edition casette tapes – they flew out, prompting us to follow up with a 12″ release.
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 the record, which despite clocking in at just under 30 minutes, attains a level of artistry and conceptual cohesiveness that many artists could only dream of.
On stage, the duo marry a slick delivey of harmonised vocals with live keys and beats, never failing to work the audience into a sensual frenzy. Jaws wll drop, potentially panties too and just you wait until Jay whips out the sax!
Buy the Record, learn the words, and join us in this officially unnoffical launch show.

SHEPHERD

Local soul singer Shepherd steps forward with a bunch of brand new material, representing Peckham alongside 22a Music / Five Easy Pieces affiliated beatmaker Reginald Omas Mamode IV.

And made seriouus waves with his killer band, releasing a record filled with mighty instrumentation and phenomenal arrangement.

House of Doors This Saturday!

house of doors-01 (1)

House of Doors, the Moodhut OG representing British Columbia, returns to South London as part of a 5 date European tour with a bag full of groove, dope kick drums and more dope gear.

An accomplished producer with a multitude of aliases (eg Bluntman Deejay), and a habit of having records sell-out almost immediately result in a vinyl lust plague across the globe. Having had his music released to critical acclaim by not just Moodhut but our other brethren at Future Times and ALL CAPS, an appearance at the pool hall has been long overdue!

THE DEAL

2 decks, a rotary mixer, 1 red neon light and a few crates of vinyl.

Rhythm Section team-up with Ruf Kutz for 2 room showdown

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Rhythm Section & Ruf Kutz are joining forces to bring a night of uncomplicated joy to Manchester.

We are thrilled to welcome our Vancouver friends the PENDER STREET STEPPERS to play ALL NIGHT LONG at Hidden. In the other room it’ll be a Rhythm Section International affair as CONTOURS meets HIDDEN SPHERES with BRADLEY and RUFFY going head-to-head yet again… Make sure you pack 2 pairs of Dancing Shoes!!!

THE PENDER STREET STEPPERS are no strangers to us – Bradley met them years ago when the Boiler Room went over to investigate exactly what they were putting in the water in Vancouver. He came back loaded up with tapes and USBs chock full of this new, woozy sound and plenty of stories about the maniacs behind it.

Since then, the rest of the world has cottoned on to the Mood Hut sound – and how. Finding themselves way way way up high in any chart worth its salt since they busted onto the scene with a killer PPU record a couple of years ago, the duo of Liam Butler and Jack Jutson (yes, THAT Jack J) boast a mighty record collection full of the strangest influences which lead to the originality and all around out-there-ness of their sound.

We are very excited to have them play all night long at our party, giving them a total blank canvas to smudge up all blunted and strange – make sure you get in early cos you don’t want to miss any of this. Maximum Headroom Required (and not just because they’re both tall).

And as if that wasn’t enough we are also going for a full on RS session in the other room – bringing a taste of SE15’s favourite Pool Hall to M3 as the bossman Bradley Zero and repeat offender Ruf Dug invite two of Manchester’s finest talents (and both Rhythm Section International Artists) CONTOURS and HIDDEN SPHERES to join them for a red light heads down no photos special…

Feet on the ground, heads in the clouds, 2 rooms of pure pleasure, PSS X RS X RK X MCR – we’ll see you on the dancefloor
