One year on from their breakthrough EP Midnight in Peckham on Rhythm Section International and Kiwi-born brothers Ben and Louis Helliker-Hales have only gone from strength to strength both as producers and DJs. Back in May they released a two-track EP via their spiritual homeland and Peckham-based record shop YAM, which continued in their motion of warm and hazy dance floor excursions. On the DJ front they’ve kept busy this year travelling across the UK and Europe; hours spent spinning records in world-leading dimly-lit music institutions which has only enhanced their dark and broody sound.
Returning to South London institution Rhythm Section Int., Chaos in the CBD present a powerful three-track EP that further establishes these guys as dominant artists within forward-thinking house music in 2016. Today we premiere our highlight off the new EP, ‘Invisible Spectrum’, a 10-minute astral exploration through jazz-induced house. The first three minutes sequence a march-like rhythm reminiscent of a late-night drumming circle, demanding your attention as the rhythm propels you further forward. The much-loved live trumpet from Isaac Aesili, also featured on ‘Midnight in Peckham’, swerves its head in and out of the track until the 6:30 mark, where it finally settles into a dreamy melody loop. Filtered warm piano chords feed in to create a backbone while rising, atmospheric pads rise and fall at will throughout. A perfect synergy between every element, the Peckham-based brothers know the art of simplicity all too well.
