About this item

Rhythm Section proudly announce a new compilation, "Shouts 2021", revealing the new sounds and direction taken by this fiercely independent and innovative UK label. Split across two volumes, volume 1 focuses on broader sound emanating from the label not necessarily bound to the dancefloor.

Liluzu's acidic daydream refraction: "Nano" kicks us off, reminiscent of the best of the Acid Test label. Next we get the new tribalism of Mafou's "Warda" & Nídia's "Celebration" both rich with intricate percussion patterns and shiny, cutting edge electronix.

Onto side B and Yushh's "3.15" wraps around a concentric broken beat, with glacial bells and tethered electrics accompanying the background buzz. Dylan Bryne injects some lo-fi electro into proceedings, an eyes-down and moody shuffle lurking around "Cherenkov Blue" before Klein Zage closes off with the inquisitive introspection of "The Sayers" which sounds like Matthew Herbert meets FYI Chris inna Rye Lane style.

Top drawer stuff here from this visionary label; showcasing their growing, global family in exquisite style. Disco sleeve with artwork designed by producer and graphic artist extraordinaire Big Ever FKA.


Matt says: Rhythm Section unveil some tasty new artists recently signed to their roster. Most of them are new to me and the quality here is HIGH. The south London stable can still be relied upon to present new and exciting directions in the dance!
