Rhythm Section release party with Hidden Spheres, Bradley Zero and more


We’ve got a new release coming out (RS012), and its by Manchester’s Hidden Spheres. We thought it would make sense to celebrate the occasion with an instore party at Eastern Bloc, with our finest selectors.

We will be bringing down (up) with us the latest represses, some back catalogue entries, new merch, and a heap of RS012. Free entry so no excuse not to see you there!

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
