DESCRIPTION

Metro aka Rheji Burrell in full 1990 NYC deep House mode here with 4 tracks of sublime subway inspired grooves.
A classic EP from the brothers vast catalog of releases.

On side A "Rush Hour" kicks off the EP, all tough snare drums, acidic lines and occasional flutes mimicking the chaos of travelling underground at peak time with a healthy dose of that Burrell swing thrown in for good measure. "Brownstone Express" follows and takes things down a notch or 2 into almost sub aquatic territory with it's glacial synth lines and rolling drum machines, a welcome oasis of calm.

On side B we have the no-nonsense beat of "Straphanger", another stripped back acid excursion punctuated with epic string stabs and Rheji's breathy, sexy spoken word vocals in the mix. Finishing the EP is "Turnstyle Turbulence" a sparse, rhythmic piano driven cut with a rolling bass-line, the perfect way to end our journey through Rheji's subterranean transport network!

Yet another essential release from the Burrell back catalog, re-mastered and re-pressed here for 2015 with all original label artwork intact.
Brought to you in full conjunction with the Burrrell brothers.
