Dark Adaption EP
RUSH HOUR (NETHERLANDS)
's second EP for Rush Hour. The freestyle disco cut-up "Sun Glare" nicely sets the mood here and is a must-have for Detroit house lovers. "Blue Canal" shows a deeper side of Rondenion; a bluesy, mid-tempo groove that sticks. The title track gives way to, well, Rondenion's darker side -- a hypnotic and mean cut that really builds and reminds of
's rawer tracks. Banging!
"Discovered by Still Music, Hirofumi Goto aka Rondenion has been causing some serious waves since
Blue Rhodes Dances
, his first release for us. Heavy is the word for the first track on this stunning EP. In a precise beatdown house mood crossing over with funky hip hop, 'Necessary One For Me' is a dancefloor killer, the bassline is loud and the beat intense. A2 sees Rondenion dropping a 7-minute plus journey into funk, jazz and soul. Another one that will bring us straight to the sound of KDJ, Theo Parrish and the 3 Chairs. Still with a killer house beat, 'Aging New Style' is hypnotic, the vocal riffs, the organ sound paired with the funkiest harpsichord are essential for this demonstration in groove. On B1, Rondenion pushes the envelope forward with a jazz infused joint. 'Tokyo Story' starts with a truly insane vibraphone hook that brings so much swing into this house cut lifted by a deep jazz guitar riff. Another one for the Detroit heads."
