Chaos In The CBD  —  Midnight In Peckham EP
Midnight in Peckham manages to comprise a complementary collection of five tracks, something that isn’t so easy to capture on one record. It makes for a finely poised offering from Chaos in the CBD, and sees Rhythm Section capturing the flag for South London once more.
Having already released internationally on labels such as ClekClekBoom (Paris), Hot Haus (London) and Amadeus (Montreal), the duo’s approach to production has matured immeasurably in the last year, as is evident in the restrained potency and poetic subtlety on the 4 tracks across this accomplished EP, Midnight in Peckham.
Taking it’s title from the locale the boys have come to know as home, the record channels a delicate late night energy - equally indebted to the hypnotic incantations of Ron Trent as it is to the hazy suburban atmospheres of Burial. These 4 classic cuts pay homage to deep house in it’s truest sense - at once sublime, melancholy and meditative . Chaos in the CBD have clearly taken their cue from the mid-west masters of the genre but have not been afraid to let their own influences and environ creep in, and in doing so have created something that is unmistakablely London and infact, timeless.
Chaos In The CBD just rolls off your tongue. It rolled off my tongue naturally for so long that I didn't even know what CBD was even an abbreviation of.
