Hidden Spheres returns to Rhythm Section International with ‘Tanzen’. The Manchester producer brings a pleasingly nostalgic, warehouse-ready house affair. The EP is rounded up by Paula Tape who opts for hands-raised acid house nostalgia on her fine revision of ‘Tanzen’.

Hidden Spheres – You Are Not Your Body EP [RS047LPC]
Mancunian DJ and Producer Hidden Spheres aka Tom Harris returns to the Rhythm Section label with a synthesis of electronic house vibrations. ‘You Are Not Your Body’ is a collection of five tracks, which touch on the sensations of euphoria and the blissed-out intersection between early prog and Detroit House. Things come to a close with a spaced out balearic house remix by RS family favourite Ruf Dug.
30/70 – Elevate [RS020]
30/70 are the latest collective to emerge from Melbourne’s buzzing scene. ‘Elevate’ is a sublime statement; at once a cry for help and a call to arms, it balances delicate poetry and potent aggression with ease – all of this done with a beguiling pop sensibility. This collection of songs, their second studio effort after their debut LP, ‘Cold Radish Coma’, is set to elevate them to the international stage.
Ron Obvious / Phrased – INTLBLK001 [INTLBLK001]
From the twilight zone of Rhythm Section International comes a new label for 2017: International Black. International Black is the sound when the lights go off. Recorded entirely on analogue hardware via reel to reel tape, this inaugural release features two hypnotic and timeless tracks from two of South London’s finest exponents of real house music. The record is made with the dancefloor in mind; channelling that moment in the club where things get dark, hypnotic, a bit weird and a lot more interesting.
Duke Hugh – Canvas [RS016]
Bradley Zero met Duke Hugh in Amsterdam, when he handed him a green USB stick after a show. He played the promos in the empty club and the first track immediately grabbed his attention – he knew it was something special. When he remembered the hook to Green Leaf the next morning he signed the release almost instantly. Each song has its own essence, there is absolutely no filler and the entire double pack sits together as a perfect whole. Flirting with aspects of broken beat, Jazz, hip hop and dreamy electronica – Duke Hugh winds together a most idiosyncratic release equally at home on the peak time dancefloor as it would be for a long road trip. Canvas is a big statement from an artist who’s here to stay.
Chaos in the CBD – Invisible Spectrum [RS014]
South London favorites Chaos in the CBD come back to Rhythm Section International one year after their breakthrough EP ‘Midnight in Peckham’. The original EP captured a moment in time in a way few songs can manage. It was hailed as a masterpiece, capturing the attention of all who listened, as evidenced by the unquenchable demand for the 12”.
