Erkki Abel and Robert Roost created the trance project Cold Rush in the summer of 2011 as a little side project.
In March of 2012 they decided to quit all of their other projects and fully commit to Cold Rush. And it was a great choice. The level of productivity was off the charts with handful of original releases and loads of remixes.
The year culminated with a bombshell for the Estonians. They were announced the winners of the official Emma Hewitt – Crucify remix competition held by Armada Music. This really was the dream coming true and turned out to be a big stepping stone in their quest of bringing their music to the widest of audiences.
In 2013 the Estonians built the Cold Rush name and solidified themselves in the trance scene as they started to get support and recognition from established trance DJ’s including debuts on FSOE and ASOT.
2014 started with the release of Horizon on Digital Society Recordings. It shot straight into the Beatport Trance top100 chart peaking at nr.9 spot! The Estonians followed up with Pacific, Gravity, Dreamwalker, Temptation and Distraction! Remixes for Roger Shah, Eco, RAM, DJ Feel and Ferry Tayle including vocalists by the likes of Zara Taylor, Carly Burns, Christina Novelli, Tiff Lacey, Sarah Shields showed that Cold Rush boys were in high demand.
The year 2015 started with 2 big releases early in the year, both of which made an appearance in Beatport top10! “Here I Am” 3rd and “Seshego” 9th! The remix for Tenishia & Susana’s “Never Let Me Down” shot straight up to top20 as well. With a lot more to come, 2015 looks to be huge for Cold Rush!
