1. Rush Hour (Aardvarck rmx)
2. Rush Hour (Convextion rmx)
With these releases Rush Hour celebrates its 10th year in operation. For the occasion we chose to hunt down the track that inspired us in naming our company: Population One’s (Terrence Dixon) Rush Hour. Pt.2 Features a fat Cult Copy style broken techno remix from our own, Aardvarck and a super deep re-think from the mighty Convextion (Downlow)
This mysterious, minimal Detroit track originally appeared in 1995 on the long defunct Utensil label, which was run by Claude Young.
So 12 years after initial release and 10 years after Rush Hour started, we give you two juicy records to celebrate. The first one holds the original and a remix by Detroit’s legendary DJ Rolando, the second features remixes of Amsterdam hot-shot Aardvarck and Dallas cowboy Convextion..
Will be come in special birthday package…
If you like this, please play loud and celebrate with us!

"Happy Birthday Rushhour!
I really like the Aardvarck mix a lot...
And the Rolando Mix is a pure dancefloor bomb.
Cheers, Arne" (Arne Weinberg, AW-Recordings)
"nice minimal tune by convextion. but the convextion rmx link does not work, its linked with the aardvarck rmx. the aarvarck rmx is more my cup of tea. bad bass and beat, just we know from him. altogether a pushing forward ep, looking forward. congrats!" (Matthias Desch)
"aardvarck mix is dope, thanks!" (Yannick Elverfeld)
"the aardvarck mix is bangin! the convextion remix is a bit too minimal for my tastes and the rolando remix never seems to full drop, but this aardvarck version does the trick! thanks.
just one general comment: i think it would save everyone a lot of time if the mp3s you sent out were properly tagged with Artist/Album/Trackname etc... also would help prevent heads from misrepresenting the releases in charts & playlists. just a thought.
