In recent times, Rush Hour's Direct Current offshoot has been a constant source of inspirational, dancefloor-baiting material. Seemingly designed to offer a retro-futurist take on house from producers perhaps better known for their more experimental material - see the thrilling, head-warping releases from Cosmin TRG and BNJMN - the imprint has rarely put a foot wrong. This two-tracker fits neatly into the RH DC template: Braille is a new pseudonym for Praveen, one half of post-dubstep visionaries Sepalcure. In true Direct Current style, the tracks presented here offer a cutting-edge take on house music that gives classic Chicago jack and the melodic futurism of Detroit a fresh new twist. "The Year 3000" opens with a delay-laden vocal snippet from Sterling Void's Chicago classic "It's Alright", before sprinting off on a woozy journey into 21st century Euro-jack. "Leavin' Without You" treads a similar path, but offers more basic, straightforward thrills; a heartfelt vocal sample nimbly dances round a ricocheting rhythm of off-beat 4/4 percussion, densely layered chords and mind-altering FX. Like its impressive A-Side, "Leavin' Without You" is off-kilter late night house music of the highest order. Essential.
