Once again the team at Unrush has gathered their energy and spirits, putting together a dazzling array of ambient excursions from artists otherwise known for their techno, house, and electro cuts. As with the last cassette, the focus here is on showcasing new works and channeling the result into diminishing some of the strains on people’s lives, with all proceeds going to help4people in Berlin.
This cassette sees the debut of Unrush founder Mareena, who has worked in collaboration with JakoJako to make a poignant piece entitled “Füreinander”, which translates to “For each other”. Indeed this is the spirit of what Unrush does, providing a safe musical space for others to explore. This disposition remains throughout the selections, with appearances from electro giants such as The Exaltics, Plant 43, Dez Williams, and Kuldaboli, all of which provide an exquisitely elaborate palate of tones, moods, and rhythms. Irakli, Artefakt, and Tomi Chair all step away from rhythm entirely and instead traverse a more pastoral plane, both in light and in darkness. Berlin mainstay Stojche brings his unique blend of seasoned downtempo house, while newcomers Carlota and Atariame round out the release with something completely different altogether.
Taken together, this collection of tracks is an ode to the quiet moments where truth shines in. Where you see between the cracks of your life and gaze upon the interconnectedness of everything around you. Take it in and feel yourself Unrush.
