With just a few low-key releases behind him, you'd be forgiven for not being familiar with the work of South London beatmaker Al Dobson Jnr. Such a situation will undoubtedly soon change with Dobson Jnr primed to release album length projects on IZWID and Rhythm Section International, two fledgling labels associated with respected selectors. Before Sounds from the Village Vol.1 drops on the former (overseen by KUTMAH) the man called Al inaugurates the latter label, an extension of the Rhythm Section club night hosted by Boiler Room's Bradley Zero. Despite his status as a South London celebrity, Zero is a steadfast supporter of his local roots and the vinyl format so it's great to see him offering Dobson Jnr the platform to shine. And shine he does on Rye Lane Vol 1, a wonderful 11 track collection that is comparable in execution and mood to Mo Kolour's sublime debut.
