The Dutch label will issue a three-track EP from the UK producer's 2000Black project this spring.
Though it's fronted by 4 Hero co-founder Dego, Kaidi Tatham and Akwasi are also key members of 2000Black, which was named after a 1975 Roy Ayers track and has been active since 1998. On Make It Hard, Dego and Tatham collaborated on two tracks—"Make It Hard" and "Steady Jam"—while a third cut, "Counter Attack," is credited to Dego and Akwasi. In typical 2000Black style, the tunes tap into elements of house, jazz, soul and broken beat.
Listen to snippets of the EP below.
01. Make It Hard
02. Counter Attack
03. Steady Jam
Rush Hour Music will release Make It Hard in spring 2015.
