Bradley Zero celebrates five years of his Rhythm Section International imprint with SHOUTS, a 36 track compilation that perfectly encapsulates the labels ever evolving and dynamic sound.
Famed by Mixmag as one of the Top Ten DJs of 2019, celebrated as a “figurehead for the exploding south London scene”, and “responsible for spreading the gospel of the city’s new Jazz sound”, it’s clear to see why Bradley Zero is quickly becoming the taste-maker of his generation and Rhythm Section INTL as one of the most respected outlets for authentic global cuts.
A go-to label for the connoisseurs Rhythm Section INTL is a UK staple. The raison d’être has always been to unearth and nurture new talent, not just via the catalogue but through the now established network of radio shows, concerts and club nights Rhythm Section has become known for. The SHOUTS compilation and accompanying celebratory tour is a continuation of this mission.
Bradley’s unique ear has gone on to break artists such as Chaos In The CBD and Neue Grafik via Rhythm Section INTL. The back catalogue of established musical heavyweights also includes Jordan Rakei in his Dan Kye guise, King Krule on production and vocals for Pinty, Harvey Sutherland masquerading as Bad Channel on the INTL BLACK sub-label, and sounds ranging from R&B by Australian producer Silentjay (Sampa the Great/ Hiatus Kaiyote) to the neo-soul incantations of 30/70 and the retro Street-Soul productions of Manchester’s Ruf Dug.
Across 36 tracks SHOUTS takes in past, present and most importantly, future elements of the label’s cross-section of sounds, to make a clear statement of intent for the next 5 years and beyond.
SHOUTS is a nod to the online radio culture that birthed the movement. SHOUTS is the label using its voice to amplify its peers. SHOUTS is Five years of Rhythm Section International.
