Antal Rush Hour Radio show
House. Techno. Brazil. Jazz. Soul. Disco. For more than two decades Amsterdam-based record store and distributor Rush Hour has been serving up exceptional, eclectic music. Launched in 1997 by Antal Heitlager and Christiaan Macdonald (who left the company in 2012), the company has grown to become a key institution in the global music community. As a label Rush Hour has always provided room for fresh, up-and-coming artist like Rednose District and Aardvarck in its early days, as well as Hunee or Interstellar Funk in recent years. In-between they peppered their catalogue with must-have records by legends like Virgo Four, Ron Trent, Anthony “Shake” Shakir and Soichi Terada to name but a few.
Aside from spreading soulful sonic wisdom via their label and it’s many sub-labels, the company also functions as a distributor for all sorts of music and labels such as Music From Memory, Knekelhuis, STROOM , L.I.E.S., and Whities. For Carhartt WIP Radio, Rush Hour co-founder Antal has prepared a mix that takes a mesmeric look at the distribution side of his company, with released and soon-to-be-released tracks from artists such as Garrett, Sabla and Hypnobeat.
