At the beating heart of the Rush Hour empire, a Dutch institution that includes a distribution network and a record label but, first and most importantly, as a record store.
Rush Hour Records was founded with an incontrovertible love of new music, of all genres, and of all types. And now, after booking artist after artist that was inspired by, or signed to, or distributed by, the Rush Hour network we finally get to celebrate with its co-founder and leader. (See his recent feature at Resident Advisor, called “The Art of the DJ“)
We’ve said this before but this time we mean it: Expect the unexpected.
One look at his SoundCloud will show you why: South African Jazz, Brazil, African Cut-Up, Suriname Disco, Turkish Psych…
It should come as no surprised that Marco Sterk (aka Young Marco) began his musical journey at the Rush Hour record store in Amsterdam. Try and try again, he failed at producing quite a few parties in the Dutch mecca, but, as he told Resident Advisor: “You can be an adventurous DJ when you’re playing to an empty room.”
Flash forward to two acclaimed albums, a raft of remixes, and a reputation for magically turning dancefloors into dust … and you can rest assured that the rooms Marco plays to now?
They’re not empty anymore.
