Over the past twenty years Rush Hour has cultivated itself into a haven for music lovers worldwide. The reputation Rush Hour has built mainly comes from the fact that first and foremost Rush Hour focuses on music they totally believe in and have a love for. The Rush Hour family has a strong sense of pride in always working with and feeding off that impulse and faith, rather than working for the mighty dollar or bottom line. Rush Hour has always been this way.
Late 1997 saw the the opening of the recordstore and mailorder, which manifested the very beginning of the company. Initially importing many obscure records from around the world then later exporting similar Dutch records to overseas companies, the distribution wing had evolved by two years later, in 1999. This set up eventually led to the start of the label, which saw its first release just before the millennium. Since then their releases feature artists all over the world in all different genres and directions. What they all seem to have in common is an electronic groove that is almost impossible to convey with words but has been, over time, coined The Rush Hour flavor.
To celebrate their 20th Anniversary we're throwing a party with the Amsterdam-based label with founder Antal, producer Hunee and Dream 2 Science for an evening that is as likely to draw from classic house records as a disco curveball, a boogie delight or mixing an African bomb into a techno record. Sean Rowlands and Sanna Nadews are taking over the Bad Room for some modern funk.
