title: amsterdam all stars
label: rush hour 2011
format: 2 x 12", CD & digital
The Amsterdam All Stars release truly does catch the current spirit of house music from the Dutch capital. The project is curated by Rush Hour and compiles the latest output from Amsterdam based (or born) house producers. It paints a detailed picture of the nightlife away from the big arena’s led by super star performers. Rather, it zooms in on the music that gets played at a small, dark club in one of the city’s back streets.
The album includes contributions from long-time Rush Hour affiliates like Awanto3, San Proper and Tom Trago as well as music from extended family members such as Boris Werner, Dexter, Melon, Juju & Jordash, Newworldaquarium and Steve Rachmad. Newcomers like Maxi Mill and Simon Weiss and Young Marco show that the city keeps delivering new talent, accepting the torch wholeheartedly.
