Hyp 237: Rushmore

Hyp 237: Rushmore

London-based party House Of Trax emerged in early 2012, giving the capital’s club scene a much needed boost in the styles that founders Fools and Rushmore were providing: Ghetto House, Jersey Club, Ballroom and Footwork, amongst others. With past guests including GHE20G0TH1K founder Venus X, modern Ballroom spearhead MikeQ and Dance Mania affiliate Tyree Cooper, the East London night has always focused on the best underground club music the US has to offer. They’ve also branched into a record label, establishing Trax Couture in 2013. Their first release came in the form of Rushmore’s brilliant ‘HOT001’ and have since featured a slew of artists on their World Series EPs that recently blossomed into an impressive  full-length.

Rushmore serves up a genre-bending Hyp mix this week that has a strong emphasis on music from the States. Spanning an array of sounds, from Ghetto to Ballroom to Footwork, it’s an hour long journey of feverish drum workouts, hefty subs and crude vocal cut-ups – a perfect soundtrack for dancefloor face-offs. A good number of his own productions feature alongside those from House Of Trax affiliates Evil Streets and Grovestreet, as well as cuts from Ghetto House legend DJ Deeon and Hyperdub mainstay – Cooly G. Here’s a few words from Rushmore himself on the direction behind the mix:

‘The mix was recorded live this morning in my studio, real life up-fader crackles [old DJM600] and everything. Most of my tracks on this are unreleased, some are forthcoming…the unknown ones are unreleased and will be out in the next few months. I wanted to cover quite a few bases from US music: Rap, House, Ghetto, Jersey, Ballroom, Footwork. It’s fairly true to most of the DJ sets that I play, but they obviously vary to any of those extremes given the circumstances. Hope you enjoy the new shit on here from me too!’
