RS002 – Al Dobson Jr – ‘Rye Lane Versions’

RS002 – Al Dobson Jr. – Rye Lane Versions

 

With the debut release selling out in a matter of days and a repress already flying off the shelves, Rhythm Section International present our second offering in the form of a Remix EP, with reworks of Al Dobson Jr. by Polish rising stars Ptaki and Manchester mainstay Ruf Dug.

Eschewing the typical notions of a remix package, Rhythm Section International offers up 2 new tracks that didn’t appear on Rye Lane volume one, accompanied by 2 strikingly imaginative remixes.

On the A side the Polish duo of Jaromir Kamiński & Bartosz Kruczynski take Al Dobson Jr’s tribal tom-tom rhythm and extend it into a sprawling disco epic, adding catchy keys and sensuous vocals that aim to tease the most reluctant of movers onto the dance-floor.

Ruf Dug’s rework, named “ Ruffy’s 3am Canavan’s Special” takes inspiration from one of many hazy late night sessions at the infamous Peckham pool hall that is home to Rhythm Section. Ruf Dug, a Rhythm Section favourite and huge admirer of Dobson’s beats, takes the gentle guitar strokes of the original and morphs them into metallic stabs, layered over an aggressive squelchy bass sound and sharp phasing hi-hats. This mantra is built upon in an effortless style typical of the Mancunian producer and is as catchy as it is hypnotic.

All Artists on this release have played at Rhythm Section at least once and they now join the ever growing roster of RS artists, which is set to expand exponentially as we step into 2015. This is one label worth keeping an eye on…and if we can judge anything from the previous release then take notice when we say DON’T SLEEP!

Early support from Gilles Peterson, DJ Nature, Hashman Deejay, Lerato, Local Artist + Jack Jutson (Mood Hut / Pender Street Steppers) , Lefto, Severino, Recloose and more….
