The third release of the cool Londoner label Midnight People brings Colombian DJs/producers Rush City, an electronic music duo based in Bogotá co-formed by talented artists Jonahlo and Joint4nine. Their debut EP delivers four ready-for-the-summer tracks with a heavy influence from the 80s Synthwave sound, infused with a modern Afro House feel. “Old School Ways” features also a sharp remix by UK-based Jive Talk (Tropical Disco Records).
“Retrospect”, the track we chose to premiere, is proof of the proper production skills of the lads. An upbeat breakbeat drum line toppled with a funky bassline, a ghostly pad and sophisticated synths. The Afro touch provided by the vocals is the cherry on top. This beauty pairs very well with gin tonic and sunset.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
