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’!

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.
