The Mexican duo Rush Hour truly lives up to its name, as this brand new EP will surely generate busy traffic on any dance floor! A wonderfully light and uplifting take on modern Progressive Trance.

 

Listening to the bass frequencies of the Are We There EP, it could also be a Rush Hour in Hamburg city: Offbeat it is, as fat, bouncy and kicking as it can be. A proved and tested recipe, once again prepared in a skilful and highly delicious manner. Rush Hour pursue a both very classic and very modern approach on Progressive Trance. It is classic because it takes its irresistible power from single sounds, single audio tracks and a mind-bending clearness. However, the actual sounds are very modern. Tuned Reference comes with playful bleeps and plops, somehow reminiscent of a computer game. There are the side-chain compressed melodies of There is NO, creating a perfidious harmonic pressure. What Rush Hour describes as a Normal Procedure is a stylish Nu School groove, full of depth and with a very urban edge. And last but not least there is the tumultuous title track, Are We There, that comes with witful rhythms and sleek string entries.
