||1.||"Nosestep" (Cosmin TRG remix)|
||1.||"Re-Spoken" (Nubian Mindz Demo mix)|
Rush Hour's Direct Current hits its fifth release with the high standard very much maintained here. On this we get some classic Aardvarck given a future flex by DC mainstay Cosmin TRG and Nubian Mindz. "Nosestep" was firmly adopted by forward thinking DJs in the nascent dubstep scene when it was released as part of the Well Well Well EP in 07. Driven by a rugged bass line that accrues weight as the track progresses, it still sounds great today. In the hands of Cosmin TRG, the track gets transformed into a cavernous acid stepper that burrows deep into your senses, especially in the second half of the track. The B Side is handed over to Nubian Mindz, with a previously unreleased Demo mix of "Re-Spoken" from 2001 seemingly perfect amidst the current future house movement. Typical class from the Rush Hour stable.
