Bradley Zero‘s label Rhythm Section, based in Peckham, South East London, is centred around a twice monthly vinyl showcase, with no musical policy beyond the aim of making people dance. Taking place in the beloved Canavan’s Peckham Pool Club, Rhythm Section is rooted in a deep passion for music that embraces the new whilst paying respect to the old ways of doing things, showcasing everything ranging from funk, soul and disco, to house and eyes-down techno.
Over the last 3 years, Rhythm Section have hosted more than a hundred of the best selectors from London and around the world – Andy Blake, FunkinEven, Young Turks, Beautiful Swimmers to name a few – but the majority largely unknown: just good people with good record collections. Now with their own regular slot on NTS Radio, as well as hosting one of the after parties for London’s Sunfall Festival earlier this summer, it comes as no surprise that Rhythm Section was nominated for ‘Label of the Year’ at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide awards.
Created as a conscious reaction to the big room, big headliner situation prevalent in the city at the time of it’s founding, the label pride themselves on their ‘no photography’ rule, avoiding the ‘hype’ culture and most importantly, keeping things intimate: Just open minds and good people dancing to good music.
