If this is the first time ur hearing about Kush Jones, take a step back and check urself for a moment.
The Bronx-based producer is part of a tidal wave of vital NYC activity (alongside DJ Swisha, MoMA Ready, AceMo and others) and his Bandcamp page shows a level of productivity that sings out his ambitions loud and clear. This EP marks Kush's first time on wax, and centers his literacy with classic house formula, signaling the ass-out grind of Dance Mania's best and bumping that against the loose, vibe-fwd groove of Omar S or Theo Parrish.
But these four dusty, percussive tracks that don't languish in past victories, they suggest that the future of the genre is no longer being dictated by preppy, well-spoken Euro whites with v-neck teeshirts and a residency at some Dutch club or other. There's genuine hope here, and if that doesn't raise ur pulse maybe lay off the cheap coke for a week or two.

‘Loos In Twos’ was last spotted on Anz’ ’Spring/Summer Dubs 2019’ set and rolls out on sort of Darqwan-meets-DJ Plead tip with a balance of bashy break-step and defter Mahraganat-like hustle shot thru with rave stabs. ‘Gary Mission’ follows with corkscrewing delays on a martial kick/snare hustle underlined with swooping subs, and she turns the screws on a belly-tightening hustle with the sparring drum hits and gasps-for-percussion of ’Stepper’.
