Where were you in the early 90's, do you remember the old skool classic Rhythm Section - 'Comin' On Strong' ? - Back in 1991 it perfectly captured the mood of the times. Melodic energy with hip-hop beats and dubby Basslines. The self-released vinyl had sold so many copies on its release, that it would have gone Top 20 .. if only the band had known about barcodes. It did however stay in the Kiss 100 charts for a massive 18 months.

The fresh faced London based quartet of Ellis D, Nick Newton, Richie T and Rennie Pilgrem went on to whomp out a total of 7 highly prized vinyl EPs. A series of sounds that not only perfectly captured the energy of the times but also played a part in the sonic foundations of the Drum and Bass and Breaks scenes.

Now 19 years later we here at Y4K towers are one part nostalgic and one part damm happy to get our hands on some on newly re-mastered classics from those prized 12"s In conunction with the band we have put together a CD of the highlights from the vinyls. Pop the CD in the player and rave on back.

Where are they now?

Ellis D: What can you say about Ellis D? Still djing all-over afer 20 years. The definitive rave dj. By the time 'Coming On Strong' was released. Rave 'ran tings' and Ellis D was the number one DJ in the scene. Indeed rumour had it he was so busy he even had a stand-in sometimes. This man played a massive part in the early formation of Breaks/D&B. Also, if anyone could claim to have discovered Rennie Pilgrem it's this man who came across Rennie and Richie T in 1989 making house tracks in East London, where he introduced them to the all-important hip-hop beats that were starting a new movement in Electronic music.

Nick Newton: Nick 'Newton' Scott and Rennie were at school together and a roving horn section in a number of funk bands. He then went to Art College. After that a job in advertising but also reuniting with Rennie he joined Rhythm Section. Following it's demise. Nick switched to Garage and House as 'Diesel & Ether', ran his own label, produced for EMI, remixed for Incognito, Ministry of Sound and many more. Still in advertising as an Art Director he also occasionally writes music for TV commercials.

Richie T: Ah, the mysterious Richie T. Very little is known of this LA-based? artist/producer. As well as being very talented guitarist, for the last few years he has been producing and directing his own indy feature films.

Rennie Pilgrem: Co-responsible for the genre Nu Skool Breaks, and multi-award winning DJ and Artist, Rennie is currently hard at work composing music for his first Feature Film. He has also re-discovered his funk roots and is hard at work producing music in a new genre called 'Ghetto-Funk'
