Doorly Feat. Soraya Vivian – Rush (Original Mix)
LA-based Briton Doorly is back on Toolroom Records with the eagerly anticipated successor to his debut Boom Boom Room EP earlier this year. Playing closer to his professed house roots, this long awaited original opts for functionality over complexity for his second coming to the label amid its tenth anniversary celebrations. For the most part, “Rush” is a welcome re-imagining of the key-driven vocal house anthem. At a time when nostalgic turns too often replace genuine innovation, the constant juxtaposition of low end lead work and Soraya Vivian’s full-bodied top line more than secures Toolroom proof of their ongoing influence upon the development of modern house music. This may be one of Doorly’s more timid affairs to date, but with remix duties from Groovebox, Rory Lyons, Pete Griffiths and Tough Love opening the floodgates even wider, “Rush” is one of 2013’s more gleaming installments of vocal dance propriety.
