Review: Luke Standing aka Blue Hour is clearly a producer with a personal agenda. One which he's adamant about fulfilling. To give you some context, Blue Hour has self-released a dozen EPs since his debut in 2013, and he's showing no signs of stopping, if this new 3-tracker is anything to go by. Keeping in line with his characteristically jagged and angular techno approach, "Beyond The Void" is a hypnotic techno bullet with a cascade of raining synths, followed by the gentler, more melodic approach of the sublime "Shimmer" (Dreamscape)". "Radiance/Limelight", on the B-side, opens the doors to the warehouse rave, or festival, by laying down a rolling groove that is bound to leave its dancers in a state of utter trance. Solid techno works, direct from the source.
Review: After extending his reach and releasing music from new artists, Blue Hour returns to the label with his highly anticipated latest solo EP 'Devotion'. The record is, as described by the artist 'a personal homage to my early influences in dance music, frequently visited venues or events and shared experiences with close friends'. Written throughout the summer of 2019 while isolated in nature, Blue Hour identifies a common theme and sound palette to translate these ideas across 4 tracks that explore Leftfield, Techno/Trance, Hardcore, and Ambient with UK club culture at its core.
