Rush Hour comes to Make It New

I’ve never been able to fully go for DJing, because I’ve always seen something uncertain about it. I never wanted to make a lot of money with DJing. I wasn’t feeling it in that sense. That’s why I started a record shop.

Make It New is proud to be one of five US hosts for the 20th Anniversary celebration of the mighty Rush Hour Music from the Netherlands.

Rush Hour began as a record store, then opened a distribution arm, and then a legendary record label. Here is its co-founder, Antal, talking about the art DJing:

“I think there’s a certain respect for a DJ that comes with introducing tunes that are unheard in a certain scene. I try to focus most of the time on trying to discover new and old music. That’s where the passion is. I have a hunger to find stuff that I haven’t heard before. It’s nice when I go searching in a direction where I don’t know a lot of stuff and hear new tunes and then play them out.

To me, that’s the role of DJing, because in essence a DJ is just a record promoter. He or she has to promote records that you haven’t heard so that they become valuable for people.

Antal is bringing Rush Hour’s not-so-secret weapon, Hunee, in order to play all night long:

Hunee pretty much operates on his own terms, in his own world. As a DJ, too, he is tireless and visibly enthusiastic at every gig. His selections are made with a palpable passion and cover a cultured cross section of essentials from house and disco to afro and techno. The music he serves up comes from a place of love and knowledge in equal measure – there are no cheap thrills with Hunee, just pure musical joy.
