RAINY CITY COMES TO RHYTHM SECTION

irfanrainy-01_v3_hires-01.jpg

After a showstoppper with Shanti, we have one of Manchester’s finest joining us this time around, part of the underground scene for over 25 years, and now part of MCDE – Irfan Rainy. Motor City Drum Ensemble recently re-issued one of Irfan’s classic recordings “It’s All In The Groove’ under his City People moniker.

Irfan started his music journey as a vinyl collecting Mancunian youngster, partying at the legendary club ‘THE HACIENDA’ during the late 80s. A powerful source of inspiration such as this was key to getting into production and DJing across the country. Since then, Irfan has played from Berlin to New York, and currently runs his own party called COMMUNITY (we like the name!), for almost 9 years now. It has hosted RS favourites such as Joe Claussell, Danny Krivit, Greg Wilson, MCDE, Mike Huckaby, and Osunlade. He also had a six year residency at Club Ponana where the midweek Brazilian party occurred also saw Irfan spin Funk, Soul, Afrobeat & Disco sets alongside the likes of Questlove, Norman Jay, and Omar.

FELABRATION, an annual tribute to Fela for 17 years, another one of Irfan’s projects, is culminating in the form of a new collaborative group called Africa Mancunia – coming to wax in 2017! Alongside Rainy City Music, Irfan’s new sub label SOMETHING IN THE WATER has operated since 2013 and now records exclusively under the guise of PITCHED BLACK for the new label. With a rich history and skills to pay the bills – can’t wait to welcome Rainy into the Pool Hall, in his words ‘When it Rains, It Pours’!

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.
