Shanti Celeste joins Bradley Zero at the Pool Hall

shanticeleste_v2_hires-01

After an antipodean dominated summer, we are back with Bristol’s finest Shanti Celeste, joining Bradley Zero for the next dance at Canavans. We can’t wait!

An integral part of the dance music scene in Bristol for many years, Shanti has converted her prowess in the west country to across the globe with sets this year in Chicago (smartbar), Vancouver, Sweden, Estonia to name a few! Having started working in Idle Hands record shop in Bristol years back, building up a collection of the finest records old and new, branching from jazz to electro. With eclectic tastes making her a versatile selector perfect for any basement, festival stage or pool club shakedown.

Shanti’s skills as a DJ and producer tend to lead to dancefloor destruction. Be warned. With releases on Future Times, Apron Records, Secretsundaze and her own BRSTL imprint, its no wonder her phenomenal demand as a DJ brings her to nations far and wide.

Bradley Zero extended session at the Pool Hall

dankye16V1_hires-01

Unbelievable scenes last time with Prequel, and continuing our antipodean romance we have another coming to the pool hall going by the name of Dan Kye, joining Bradley Zero and Z Lovecraft.

Dan Kye was created from the subconscious. An alter-ego (of Jordan Rakei) so to speak. An artist that is a piece to a bigger puzzle. His live set consists on live looping, live sequencing, playing keyboard and singing. He has played before in the pool hall (before Max Graef) and his first experience of London, coming off the plane, was Rhythm Section NYE 2014. No better inauguration! A musical talent, and definitely one to watch in the near future…

Bradley Zero will be bringing more records than usual for an extended session in the booth. Somewhat a rare occurance in the pool hall, so expect a voyage through past, present and future.

Accompanied by protege, crate-digging, riddim loving 100% certified Rhythm Section team member otherwise known as Mali, Z Lovecraft. With possibly too much time spent in YAM Records (infront and behind the counter), twiddlin’ knobs in the studio, and with a debut EP earmarked this year with an emerging local label, get to know. First came to Rhythm Section #2 in 2011 and hasn’t left since: holding it down for BZ with the likes of Cosmic Slop, K15, and Andrew Ashong.

Prequel returns to the Pool Hall

prequel_hires-01

After a show stopping extravanganza with NYC’s finest Mr Saturday Night, we are back with Rhythm Section OG producer and selector PREQUEL.
 
With another Rhythm Section International release on the way very very soon, and having previously blown away the likes of Gilles Peterson and Lefto with his inaugural release we can’t wait to let release what 10 more releases on our side and 2 years of hard work in the studio from Prequel have amounted too. But until then we have Prequel all the way from Melbourne, Australia on his European tour selecting the finest house, disco, soul and everything in between at the pool hool. Joined as ever by our host and resident Bradley Zero.

RS012 – Hidden Spheres – Well Well

rs012-artwork-01 (1)

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.
