SSFB ARTIST BIO’S BELOW

LEROY BURGESS

Shamefully undervalued, tirelessly prolific and consistently inspired, “the Miles Davis of boogie” was born in Harlem, growing up as a gospel vocalist. Burgess soon added multi-instrumentalism and composition skills to his powerful baritone vocals, and began churning out countless records for disco and boogie groups as a behind-the-scenes producer or vocalist, sometimes carrying groups through with his raw talent and vision.

But Burgess didn’t stop. He fronted several projects – the most famous of which, Logg, released an acclaimed LP with tracks subsequently remixed by Larry Levan. When disco morphed into boogie, Burgess didn’t wilt away like other artists; he adapted, and his funk-tinged keyboard playing was ripe for the genre. But as the popularity of boogie began to wane and partygoers began to devour a new sound called house, Burgess again didn’t slide into the shadows; he collaborated with Glenn Underground, Chez Damier and Masters At Work.

Leroy Burgess has been around to watch genres ebb and flow like the tide, but he’s always standing there on the beach ready with his gospel-inspired vocals and keyboard.

HUNEE

Hunee has a playful element in his productions hard to categorize or pigeonhole. He’s unconcerned with what is new or in vogue, instead crafting wry beats which sometimes glimmer and sometimes growl. The engine under it all, though, is a propulsive sense of rhythm and the opinion that music should be fun.

ANTAL

Trying to pin Antal down to a DJing style is problematic. The most you’ll probably get from him is “soulful”, but it doesn’t matter whether that soul comes from a three guitars or a drum machine. Much like Rush Hour has grown over the years from house and techno into more obscure genres like Brazilian bossa nova, South-African kwaito and stacks of spiritual jazz, so too has Antal’s taste evolved.

YOUNG MARCO

Young Marco is almost a synonym for Amsterdam’s dance music scene. Starting out with several infamous residencies around the city, Marco grew into a respected producer releasing on Rush Hour and Lovefinger’s ESP imprint. He’s built and fostered a reputation as talented producer, label head and quirky party starter – usually with a cigarette in hand.

Predicting the next track in a Young Marco set is a little like predicting next week’s weather. As a sun-kissed tropicalia track draws to a close, it’s anyone’s guess whether the sun will continue with some Arabic disco or break loose in a thunderstorm of techno and electro. Surrounding his selections though is a love of the peculiar and the kinks – a sense of humor all too often missing on the dance floor.

After a debut album and worldwide touring, 2017 was a year for Marco to focus on compiling stellar releases on his label Safe Trip.

DJ PAULAO

Collector, selector and record store director DJ Paulão comes from a country standing in an elite circle of musical heavyweights. A country whose influence on humankind’s association with music can be matched by few. Along with gifting us genres like bossa nova, samba and choro, Brazilian culture has taught us how to rethink our relationship with music. DJ Paulão is a walking thesaurus of his country’s stockpiles of productions.

Most of the time you’ll catch him digging for tracks in Patuá Discos, his record store on a quiet street in the northwest of Sao Paulo. If you miss him there though, chances are he’s hosting a show on the station he helped found, Rádio Muda, or organizing legendary parties.

When listening to DJ Paulão, expect to be taken on a nomadic trip of Brazil’s musical heritage – spanning time zones and genres.

MARGIE

Music runs deep in the veins of this Eindhoven-born, Amsterdam-based multi-talent. Along with being a first-rate DJ, Margie aka Mijke Hurkx is also an award-winning journalist. Her work has featured in dozens of music publications but she’s perhaps best known as part of the Rush Hour Records family, editing their magazine and handling all communications.

In Margie’s world without genre borders, there’s only good or bad music. The music lover extraordinaire boasts of a record collection ranging from boogie, disco and techno to wave, gospel and whatever floats her boat. Her boundless music wisdom is unmistakable in her shows on Red Light Radio, where unapologetically, she spins tall musical tales with a genre-bending approach that never fails to deliver an element of surprise to her audience.

SATOSHI

Rush Hour family member Satoshi Yamamura is a record collector who, together with PAM, make up the music blog Okonkole Y Trompa. We think they found their strange name from a mesmerizing piece of horn work on a 1973 jazz fusion album, and their finds do the namesake justice. Growing from a humble Youtube channel where the boys could upload discoveries otherwise unavailable online, they now curate a website receiving rapid recognition, along with monthly show on London’s NTS.

Their collection is a diggers paradise: an oasis of rare releases, unfamiliar artists and dusty grooves nearly lost to the world. It’s impossible to narrow down their taste to genres – it’s whatever they find in the back of the crate. But they do seem to have an attachment to new wave, synth pop, ambient and jazz fusion though, plus dozens of others beside.

Satoshi and his Okonkole Y Trompa blog enjoy taking you on an ethnomusicological trip around the outer limits of music.

JAPAN_FB_Header

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.
