Dawn Of A New Age
Rush Hour
Catalogue Number
Release Date
February 10, 2014


Another essential repress from Rush Hour as they foray into the underworld of 90’s UK techno and house. Originally released by Tony Thorpe’s short-lived house label BPM Records in 1990, ‘The Dawn of a New Age’ was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it gem that never quite lived up to the fate it should have done. Forever fated to a life as a little-known obscurity, all that’s now set to change, the record sounding as relevant and as futuristic as ever – think Dream 2 Science, Burrell Brothers and other Nu Groove output and you’re some way to understanding this gem of a record. Genre fans may recognise ‘Distant Drums’ as a pirate radio favourite back in 1988 - all upbeat house chords and self-help samples set to mellow breakbeats - but other tracks are just as dazzling, with an early hard house template on the hoover-powered ‘I’m Alive’, pre-Orbital melodic acid on ‘Spheres’ and a Paul Hardcastle-like sample mashup on the title track.Mustafa Ali’s album did incredible things with the most basic of techno palettes; this release is a second chance to grab a slice of dance history.
