12 inches of joy courtesy of a limited repress of our favourite remix record - Rye Lane Versions. A bonafide classic can now be yours!
Eschewing the typical notions of a remix package, Rhythm Section International offers up 2 new tracks that didn’t appear on Rye Lane volume one, accompanied by 2 strikingly imaginative remixes.
On the A side the Polish duo of Jaromir Kamiński & Bartosz Kruczynski take Al Dobson Jr’s tribal tom-tom rhythm and extend it into a sprawling disco epic, adding catchy keys and sensuous vocals that aim to tease the most reluctant of movers onto the dance-floor.
Ruf Dug’s rework, named “Ruffy’s 3am Canavan’s Special” takes inspiration from one of many hazy late night sessions at the infamous Peckham pool hall that is home to Rhythm Section. Ruf Dug, a Rhythm Section favourite and huge admirer of Dobson’s beats, takes the gentle guitar strokes of the original and morphs them into metallic stabs, layered over an aggressive squelchy bass sound and sharp phasing hi-hats. This mantra is built upon in an effortless style typical of the Mancunian producer and is as catchy as it is hypnotic.
