Two years after turning heads with ‘You Keep Me Waiting’, Bender emerges with the long-anticipated follow-up to his debut release on The Bearded Man. Today, ‘Love Rush’ sees the L.A.-based DJ, producer and singer-songwriter make his grand return to the label as well as kick-start his FunkHouse movement in style.
Helmed by a tremendously groovy bassline, ‘Love Rush’ radiates an upbeat vibe right off the bat while tuning its rhythms to the perfect dance floor experience. Juggling brisk, sweet vocals with soaring guitar tones in an arrangement that instantly sets the groove, this cut is by all means a perfect return to The Bearded Man and a superbly efficient way for Bender to make his mark again.
Bender enjoyed big success as one half of vibrant “Summer Bass” duo The Rooftop Boys, making waves worldwide with their remixes for the likes of Nick Jonas, Felix Jaehn, Sam Feldt, Syn Cole and Coldplay. As a solo artist, Bender continues to polish his signature sound to perfection while also kicking ass on the live front; he played shows at Tomorrowland, supported Kaskade in New York and shared the stage with the legendary Carl Cox at the last Burning Man.
