Running Back head honcho Gerd Janson, who also operates as one half of Tuff City Kids alongside Lauer, takes us on yet another long ride with the second edition of his “Musik For Autobahns” compilation series for Rush Hour.

It’s a “fresh and exclusive collection of music that hopefully sounds as great in a car as it will in the comfort zone of your own living-room or during dusk and dawn in your favorite club environment,” says Gerd Janson. Check out the tracklist below, and preview the whole thing above.

Tracklist (CD):
01. Leon Vynehall – Midnight On Rainbow Road

Following the release of his sophomore “Insides” LP for Ghostly, UK producer Mike Greene, aka Fort Romeau, lands on Gerd Janson’s Running Back label with a cracking new EP called “Fairlights”. The five-track record of heart-breaking dance-floor romanticism is dedicated to the infamous Australian Fairlight CMI (Computer Musical Instrument) that people like Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock or Kate Bush fell in love with during the late 1970s/early 1980s. Our favorite cut from the EP is “Saku”, a great tune that has been on repeat on our car stereo. Give it a spin above.

Fort Romeau’s “Saku” is out now via Running Back. Get it here.
