Press Info:
Over the past few years, Luke Standing – the British producer behind the Blue Hour project, has been developing his self-titled imprint as a go-to outlet for high-energy, retro-futuristic Techno. On BLUEHOUR010 the British producer draws from his trademark palette, offering a brace of perfectly executed, functional dance floor work outs. Opener Beyond The Void launches immediately into peak time territory, marrying fearsome drum programming with low-sunk synth work – bringing a classic compositional structure up to date. A2 Shimmer (Dreamscape) showcases the more introspective, heads-down side to Standing’s work – a psychedelic, question-answer drum track that finds it’s energy in powerful, low-end groove and a dynamic, shifting arrangement. On closure Radiance/Limelight, Blue Hour continues to explore a kind of peak time energy, but with a wholly different bent – owing more to the hypnotic concerns of classic Trance, all the while maintaining the rich tone & careful execution.

Working careful reference to past sonics in with more complex, contemporary sampling techniques -born out of years of experience as both a producer & a DJ, has seen Blue Hour develop an enviable discography in a comparatively short space of time. BLUEHOUR010 is as similarly streamlined & effective as its predecessors, but at the same time represents a powerful move forward for both the producer himself & the imprint – honing in expertly on that arcane euphoria that continues to characterise the very best of the genre.
