Ed Rush Opens Up the Piranha Pool

Posted: September 26th, 2014

D&B fave Ed Rush has announced a new imprint, Piranha Pool Recordings. While the label has been months in the making, the project finally came to fruition after spending more time in his new home studio, where he was inspired to write a lot more music

Rush feels that the Piranha Pool name is a perfect way to describe the label—upfront, aggressive and hard to compete with. It will carry a similar sound as his current Virus label, but will also be a home for fresh new artists.

In the meantime, Ed Rush and Optical are finishing up final mixes for their new album, which includes the dancefloor banger “Scarabs,” which can be pre-ordered here
