look we re five records deep and yes, we arent sure which tune is on which side. but luckily, this release is as high concept as speed 2: cruise control. on one side you will find ad, which samples an inspiring speech given by the heroic angela davis at southbank in 2017. listen to her wisdom as you play this in your front room at 7am to people who suddenly can t quite look at their hands properly. the other side pas greets you with warnings of atomic explosions over a riotous jam between a yamaha cs-10 and a sturdy analogue 808 clone. if you have a pressing need for air raid sirens, this is for you. we hope you like this west friends release. there will be more.
the dust settles on the inaugural release... we immediately swipe the dust away and prepare a triple-shot salvo from fyi chris: two west friends from around the way. tracks informed by times spent on the shore, in fields by moonlight with moonshine and in the line for some midnight scran. pass some time and the peace pipe with this bundle of audio from peckham, london
after a blistering end to 2016, rhythm section intl begins its 2017 schedule with a second outing from peckham duo fyi chris. sitting firmly left of centre, these 4 tracks manage the very difficult task of being both unconventional and highly functional. highly recommended for fans of similarly difficult-to-categorise artists such as red axes, axel boman and baba stiltz.

long celebrated as a hub for new producers to showcase their talents, cdr return to the releasing game in partnership with dimensions festival. up and coming house heads k15 and fyi chris reportedly invited lismore and ben houghton to take part in this collaborative release, resulting in four tracks that wouldn t sound out of place soundtracking a balmy afternoon dance on the adriatic sea. oozing quality and soul throughout, there s a distinctly laid back flavour to the house on offer across this release, although fyi chris add a touch more bite with their grubby lo-fi synth lines on -sugar-.
the lionoil pride return from a heady trip to the most liminal reaches of human comprehension and have brought back something special from their travels. they welcome peckhams finest, fyi chris - the janus of jam, the hydra of hip and the two newest members of the east coast caledonian cosmic cohort! with them they bring the lionoil ep - a dirge of disco dragon chasers and hermetic house hangovers. no dipping the toes gently into this one, dive deep and fully submerge...
as spring dawns, rhythm section international go from local artist to a pair of very * local* artists - peckham’s very own chris watson + chris coupe, otherwise known as fyi chris , who present the ‘back in the millennium’ ep as the labels 5th offering. the ep was born after a rather hazy late night listening session at rhythm section hq, where bossman bradley zero was instantly beguiled by the duos hypnotic and rhythmically complex arrangements. the record begins abrasively with the trance-inducing mechanical stutter of back in the millennium , before shuffling into downbeat number * jeru* and then picks things up with the peak time groove of * need i say more* before bringing us back down to earth with the melancholic acid bump of * dedication*. early support from osunlade, mr.g, ryan elliott & damiano von eckhert. ready for club use.

marcel vogel has decided to celebrate the first five years of his edit-heavy lumberjacks in hell imprint in the only way he knows how: by putting together a sumptuous double pack stuffed with fresh new material. in keeping with the way the label has developed in recent times, the eight tracks blend the boundaries between original productions, illicit remixes and straight re edits. there s a celebratory, life affirming feel throughout, from the rubbery bass, d-train synths and rolling house grooves of giovanni damicos the break down, to the bluesy deep house brilliance of borrowed identitys queens bridge. highlights are plentiful elsewhere, too, from the hustlin electrofunk meets disco of vogel s own come on, to the killer synth solos and fuzzy bits of tim jules thrilling slap beat.
