After a break from the scene, Manchester-based producer Colossus is back and firing on all cylinders! He just dropped his debut LP Third Face, and a brand new EP for Bay 6 Recordings, so we thought it was time for a knees-up. Read on for the lowdown on his break and return, track names and upcoming projects…
Today we’ve got a double-dose of exclusive business as we present two tracks from the brand new Rush Records Remix LP!
First up is Solo’s epic Sun VIP! Serious break chopping business with a side of liquid pad action on this one; fans of Breakage, Paradox et al will be all over it.
The second of our two exclusives comes from Structure, on the remix for label boss Colossus. His take on What I Want serves up lush, rolling D&B with a hint of jazz and a touch of snarl in the bassline; proper liquid business! Hit up Beatport to grab yourself a copy of the album right now.
Leeds liquid imprint Rush Records is now enjoying it’s third year in the game, with a healthy catalogue of releases and plenty more on the horizon. We figured it was high time we caught the guys for a quick chinwag, so we tapped label bosses Colossus and Transcript for the lowdown on all things Rush.
Music with feeling is often a bit absent from the world of D&B (and indeed the wider world of club-oriented electronica) so fresh releases from the likes of Soul:Motion provide a bit of a breath of fresh air; for all that we like a gnarly drop here at the Dojo it’s not all that this music has to offer.
Their latest single for Rush Records certainly has plenty of emotion to it, with a spalsh of dancefloor sensibilities for good measure. Sentiment proves plenty soulful with soothing pads and soft vocal snippets, but Lonely Road is the true star of the show. Simple piano chords and soft strings combine with a crisp liquid break for a track that just shimmers effortlessly. One to lose yourself in. Check out the clips below and grab this one right now!
Leeds based liquid imprint Rush Records celebrate their 20th release with a 12-track compilation featuring a host of new tracks from the extended label family. There’s plenty to enjoy here, with highlights coming on the deep, understated melodies of Monrroe’s Elation, Altered Perception & Imprint’s melancholy Heartbeats and the unusual, autonomic-esque riddims of Solo’s Sun. Check out the clips below and head to your favourite digital store to grab this one now!
The latest release on Rush Records sees label boss Colossus providing two beautiful liquid rollers; rich melodies, crisp breaks and happy vibes all the way on these two. Apollo leads the single with a soft, inviting combo of guitar and piano while Riptide goes deeper, with warm sub and more understated piano licks.
