Dutch techno representative Steve Rachmad mixed up his 10 favorite Kenny Larkin classics for a special occasion! In 2015 Rush Hour will repress the label’s Kenny Larkin catalogue.

-

Rush Hour co-operated with Kenny Larkin/Art Of Dance in ’05/’06, and released a collection of highlights from Kenny Larkin’s 1991 to 1997 period, including the stand out tracks Azimuth and Metaphor for instance.

These 12’s have been out of print for years and will be available again!

-

Since their start, both artists have had great influence on the techno genre and in their carreers their paths crossed several times. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Steve Rachmad has been integral to the development of the scene in his native Netherlands. Detroit’s Kenny Larkin began producing in the early nineties, influenced by Juan Atkins and Derrick May, as well as the Chicago house music scene and has produced many techno classics.

A: KENNY LARKIN – PRESENTS: POD – THE VANGUARD EP

The truly deadly album from Terrence Dixon on Rush Hour Music is out! Under the Population One codename, Detroit citizen, Terrence Dixon, has realised some of his most vivid, esoteric portals to the Motor City mindset. ‘Theater Of A Confused Mind’ is Dixon’s 2nd album in this mode and marks a timely return to Rush Hour twenty years after his debut album, ‘Unknown Black Shapes’, and the ‘Hippnotic Culture’ 2LP, whose ‘Rush Hour’ track inspired our company’s name.

In both the literal and figurative sense of the album’s title – theatre as a space for performance or an operating table, and equally in terms of psychogeography – ‘Theater Of A Confused Mind’ plays out an affected Afro-futurist narrative over eight tracks of haunting and furtive sci-fi techno. It’s riddled with cryptic connotation, systemic from the track titles to its deft, subtle mix down, all drawing upon the city’s emotions, industrial architectures and post-industrial panoramas to better express it’s sense of soul.

Between opener ‘Out Of Control’, where Dixon is the voice-in-Detroit’s-head, a dark interpreter on a dérive whispering to
himself “Detroit, Out of Control/As I Walk Through The Mists Of Detroit/And You Don’t Know What We Be”, and through to the mind-blowing sci-fi projections of closer ‘All Of A Sudden’, it renders a unique perception of Detroit’s enduring export. Tracing circuitry like grid-iron avenues, Dixon deviates down back alleys, through warehouses and across mental space, divining the ghosts of jazz in the coiled double bass of ‘For Only You’, or long lost SOS transmissions in the tribal patterns of ‘Code Urgent’, whilst the prickling electro of ‘Battle For Space’ condenses that fractured flux at the album’s core, and the kaotic harmonies of ‘My Own Shadow’ encapsulate a Kafkaseque sense of raving paranoia.

In light of recent news that Terrence is set to retire from making music, the already incredible ‘Theater Of A Confused Mind’ is imparted with an ever more impending sense of gravity. It’s little short of Population One’s magnum opus, and should be treated with due respect.
