Hot Creations head honcho Jamie Jones teams up with Darius Syrossian, a techno tastemaker in his own right, for “Rushing,” an infectiously bouncy house track that highlights the pairing’s collective penchant for the true funk that can withstand the test of time.
With kicks as swollen as they are deep, “Rushing” definitely thumps, but what makes the Defected Records single such a glistening club option is also how it slaps. Layers of tribal and hand drums set the stage before the Strictly Rhythm samples lead listeners into clap-driven rhythmic bliss. Ultimately, “Rushing” represents two vets with a stronghold on their genre who remain at the apex of their respective games.
I think to make sure I keep releasing music that I’m proud of releasing and that I can sit back in ten years and listen to it all again and still feel it not just in a nostalgic sense but in a way that it’s still music that I would play then as well. – Darius Syrossian in an interview with Dancing Astronaut.
With Jones’ weekly Paradise party thriving in its 8th year at Ibiza’s DC-10 and Syrossian’s Do Not Sleep partnering with Amnesia, just across town, “Rushing” is quickly poised to be one of the dance capital’s top summer selects.
