The new imprint, born out of Bradley Zero's Peckham club night, will launch with an LP from Al Dobson Jr.
Founded by Bradley Zero, Rhythm Section parties take place in the humble surroundings of Canavan's pool hall in Peckham. The party was profiled in 2013 by RA's Angus Finlayson, who wrote: "In spite of its modest means and ambitions, [Rhythm Section] has been something of an epiphany for me, and for plenty of others too." The party's booking policy has revolved around its residents along with a varied cast of guests.
Zero has revealed plans to start a label—Rhythm Section International—that will launch with a 11-track LP from Al Dobson Jr. Though the record's name (Rye Lane Volume 1) is a nod to the party's Peckham locale, its sound and track titles ("Grenada Special," "Peru Timing," "Columbian Special") reach far beyond SE15. The label hasn't given an exact release date, but promise the record will hit the shops before summer.
