Listen to Part 1 of Rick Wilhite's 'Vibes New and Rare Music 2' Collection for Rush Hour
- Words: James Eaton
Split into two parts and serving as the second installment of Detroit DJ/producer/record guru Rick Wilhite's ongoing series, the first-half of the Vibes New and Rare Music 2 collection has landed via Amsterdam’s Rush Hour label. Coinciding with the new release, a full stream of the seven-track compilation has now surfaced.
Vibes New and Rare Music 2, Part 1 serves as the first of two collections intended to highlight established and new artists from Wilhite's hometown of Detroit as well as Chicago and New York. As the veteran DJ explains on Rush Hour's website, each track included on Vibes New and Rare Music 2 is meant to represent exactly "who the artist is and what he really likes to put out." The resulting collection covers a wide range of deep-reaching, soul-washed house with "The Godfather" Wilhite himself offering up a collaborative track along with fresh cuts from K Alexi, Jovonn, and Motor City newcomer Jon Easley, among others.
Part 1 of Vibes New and Rare Music 2 is out now in vinyl form and can be streamed in full below. Part 2 of the collection—which will feature the likes of Moodyman, DJ Stingray, and others—is expected to see a release later in the months to come, and the two collections are set to be brought together onto a single CD later this year as well.
