Rush Hour in FranceRush Hour go to France! The label visit the cities of Paris and Bordeaux, accompanied by Ron Trent, Hunee, Antal, San Proper, Volcov, Interstellar Funk, Robert Bergman and Leon Vynehall. Soichi Terada will join on Paris’ biggest party boat called Concrete. Rush Hour started hosting annual nights at Concrete in 2012 and it has always been a huge pleasure. Time to learn more about Paris and the Concrete crew, so we asked promoter Brice Coudert a few questions.

Why a boat?
Because it’s floating on the water? :) Actually it’s not a boat but a barge, so it’s quite huge and it can’t move on the water by itself. We chose that location, because it definitely got something really special and different that any other clubs I’ve ever experienced. The dance floor is very long with a low ceiling, so all the energy is very packed, something you can really feel at peak time.

We are also in a quite calm area of Paris, so the good thing is we are not disturbing anyone with our house and techno music. Except maybe the fishes. I hope they dance to the music as well.

How is clubbing and underground dance in Paris these days?
In 4 or 5 years it has become quite crazy. Every weekend there are a lot of parties happening everywhere in the city, with very interesting line ups. All of them are packed and have an intense vibe. People really jumped on that clubbing culture, and are really passionate about it. I don’t know how many Facebook groups there are nowadays, where French people share track IDs. And record shops are packed every Saturday afternoon as well…

But most of all, it is very interesting to see how many new young talents are emerging right now. I hope this is not just a hype, but I think everything is proving it’s not only that.

There have been several Rush Hour label nights at Concrete, how were these for you guys?
One of the first label events we organized was with Rush Hour. The label has always had a big influence on me, because I always loved the way in which they were able to release any kind of genre and the way they remained attached to Chicago and Detroit. It was important for us to promote such a label, as Rush Hour carry out the exact kind of values I wanted to promote in Paris with Concrete. Im also very connected with a lot of people in Amsterdam and i really love the Dutch scene, so it just made sense to go for it.

I can say that every Rush Hour event at Concrete contains the same ingredients: a wide scale of musical genres, a lot of fun on the dance floor and in the DJ booth, and an abnormal amount of Dutch people in the club.

It’s gonna be the 5th RH party at Concrete, and I really can’t wait for it. For sure I wont work on that day. ;)

Soichi Terada plays his “Sounds From The Far East” compilation live in Europe this fall!! After over 20 years, the Japanese house pioneer will present his classics live in London, Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam in October and November.

Terada’s tour will be part of a series of Rush Hour nights, where he will play along with Ron Trent, Hunee, Antal, San Proper, Volcov, Interstellar Funk, Robert Bergman and Leon Vynehall. It is a great honor to have him over!

Soichi Terada founded Far East Recording in 1989. His take on US house/ garage and gained love from New York’s greats like Larry Levan, who made Terada’s „Sun Shower” into a Paradise Garage gem. But over the years, the releases remained limited and various releases became chased after by many house heads that were into his eccentric eastern lush house-sound. The “Sounds From The Far East” compilation on Rush Hour meant a true revival of his music in 2015.

Compiled by Hunee, “Sounds From The Far East” consists of material that was originally released in the early nineties. Next to Terada’s music, Hunee also selected a few tracks by fellow artist Shinichiro Yokota for this compilation as well as “Low Tension” by Terada & Manabu Nagayama.

Rush Hour’s Young Marco, San Proper and Antal are packing up for a trip in Japan. It’s is going to be a very exiting week with the Rainbow Disco Club festival ahead of us, and a show with Soichi Terada in Kobe plus digging stops… Anticipated as we are, we will drop as much Japanese updates as possible via our RH platforms. Updates about Japanese gems, the tour and the shows, starting out with a ‘Favorites From Japan’ playlist… Stay tuned!

Favorites From Japan
This trip is a good reason to recollect our Japanese favorites in an ever expanding Youtube playlist… Let’s highlight a short selection from that list here.

1. HARUOMI HOSONO – PHILARMONY
This masterpiece gets a repress soon!! “Philarmony” is an avant-garde solo project from Japanese electronic music maestro Haruomi Hosono, founder of the Yellow Magic Orchestra. Originally released in 1982 on his own Yen label, the LP features experimental, boundary-pushing and schizophrenic compositions, veering from wildly abstract beauties to tight and funky dance floor fillers. It is a mesmerizing wander through the sonic genius of Japan’s legendary musical innovator.

2. KIMIKO KASAI WITH HERBIE HANCOCK – BUTTERFLY
‘Butterfly’ is a wonderful and very rare 1979 LP by Japanese songstress Kimiko Kasai and jazz legend Herbie Hancock. Inspired performances from Kimiko herself as well as the supremely talented band of musicians Hancock united for the project, including master drummer Alphonse Mouzon and renowned organist Webster Lewis.

3. RYO KAWASAKI – HAWAIIAN CARAVAN
This beautiful track is taken from “Ryo”, released in 1982. The Japanese jazz guitarist was a musician for the band Tarika Blue, to name another favorite of ours. Kawasaki is best known as one of the first musicians to develop and popularise the fusion genre and for helping to develop the guitar synthesizer in collaboration with Roland Corporation and Korg.

4. RYUICHI SAKAMOTO – RIOT IN LAGOS
This otherworldly electronic track is also from a Yellow Magic Orchestra member. “Riot In Lagos” by Sakamoto was firstly released in 1980 on Island Records. The Japanese musician from Tokyo was also an actor. He played a role in, and composed music for the award winning Bernardo Bertolucci movie The Last Emperor.

Soichi Terada

Hunee compiles Soichi Terada’s works for the fascinating album ‘Sounds From The Far East’. This LP features highly sought after material by the legendary Japanese house producer.

Soichi Terada is an adventurous multitalent and over all a good sport. He was born in the sixties, and as a child he loved to play on his fathers’ electric organ. Terada majored in Computer Science and Electric Organ and after he graduated, he founded his Far East Recording in 1989, because he couldn’t find a label for his compositions at that time.

The sound of Far East Recording is very much inspired by early nineties US deep house. Soichi Terada went out to parties in the late eighties, were he was equally influenced by house and hip-hop. A few years later, Terada took on producing music by using digital sampling. In the early nineties he occasionally DJ-ed with a DAT player and some reel tapes, instead of using records and turntables.

‘Sounds From The Far East’ shines new light on Soichi Terada’s label and consists of material that was originally released in the early nineties. Next to Terada’s music, Hunee also selected a few tracks by fellow artist Shinichiro Yokota for this compilation, as well as ‘Sun Showered’, based on the incredible Paradise Garage gem called ‘Sunshower’, by Terada and Nami Shimada.

01. Soichi Terada – Saturday Love Sunday
