washington dc’s rush plus drop four superb techno cuts entitled ‘the sweat ep’ on p.leone and caiazzo’s e-missions imprint this june. having dropped three quality releases on their own eponymous label, rush plus continue to turn heads with their imaginative productions, gaining support from the upper echelons of techno with names like rodhad, ben klock, dj spider, ben sims, slam, answer code request, dj deep and many more getting behind them. following up a release on ambivalent’s valence records, they now join p.leone and caiazzo’s rapidly rising e-missions imprint. ‘megabust’ initiates the package with twisted sci-fi synths and syncopated drums whilst rattling metallic elements operate throughout. intricate hits of percussion are soon followed by rumbling bass in ‘rebirth’ as the track gradually becomes more and more twisted using filtered effects and soaring pads, making way for the shuffling ‘sweat’ with its menacing stabs and echoing voices. finally, the package concludes with ‘slow release’ - a high-octane and ominous roller.
rush plus continues onto their third release with a 4 track split ep with friends lpz (asuncion, paraguay). the first two releases from the washington, dc based duo/label focused on original material, rpdc003 showcases techno from another city with a burgeoning underground music scene south of the equator. lpz had made a name for themselves in 2016 honing their live performance, debuting on boiler room and building their label, the sequence party (which has invited the likes of truncate, marcel dettmann, et al) and presence in the south american/global underground. the trio s wealth of studio experience is imminent in their sound. they delivered two driving, hypnotic techno tracks in snooze & temp 8 on the a-side, tailored with two more tribal, hectic cuts from rush plus on the b-side. all tracks have been tested at warehouse parties in dc & asunscion, ready for international play
