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.

THE DEAL

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

Summer’s here so dress to sweat!

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.

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

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!

Rhythm Section Halloween with Myles Mears & Bradley Zero

mylesposterFRIDAYcropAfter a stomper with the Chaos In The CBD (NZ) brothers, its time for Rhythm Section OG Myles Mears to treat us. Or trick us?
If you’ve ever been to the dance before you’ll know Myles is one of the best DJ’s in this town full of the best DJ’s. Straight outta the D, via Chicago, it’s a pleasure to wecome Mr. Mears back into his natural environment – the Rhythm Section!

Awful halloween puns aside, Detroit’s Myles Mears hasn’t stopped playing at Rhythm Section since the beginning and henceforth become a Warm regular, holding down residencies at the likes of fabriclondon and the Bussey Building, but come the 30th, he’ll be with us at the pool hall… and after the clock strikes 12, it’s not only HALLOWEEN, but rumour has it that it’s also his birthday (!!)

Bring presents, dress to disgust.
