Leeds based DJ & Producer Hot Since 82 has had a compelling year to say the least. Having topped the Beatport Top 10 with his remix to Yousef’s “Beg,” his production prowess is securely fastened into the rising-star spotlight. This week he makes his label debut on the prestigious Get Physical imprint with his Forty Shorty EP.
“Like You” — the lead track on the release — forces you to listen from the second you click play. After the drop, when his signature rolling basslines begin, you understand why you’re so hooked — this is upbeat deep house at its finest; pure and natural groove emotes with every beat. The title track, “Forty Shorty,” begs you to come along on a rhythmic ride with funky basslines leading the way. Full of throbbing energy and a soulful vocal segment, this eerie track creates a seductive vibe through and through.
