2013 has been off to an unbelievable start over at the Radio 1 studios, and this past week’s Essential Mix from Radio 1 regulars and Moda Black heads Jaymo & Andy George was just one more notch on the radio station’s decorated bed post. This taste-making duet met only in 2008, but since then have built a well-respected party brand, record label, recorded now three Essential Mixes (two live), served as early supporters for names like Hot Since 82 and Disclosure, and landed residencies in Ibiza and Fabric London. When they have a moment to breathe, they also do a solid job on their own in the studio and compile award-winning compilations (their first volume of Moda Black reached #1 on the iTunes Dance charts last year).
Hot Since 82 is certainly living up to his name. Before the dust had begun to settle from last week’s rework of Thomas Schumacher’s “Every Little Piece,” the Leeds-based deep house sensation gave fans a preview of his forthcoming collaboration with Noir label member Habischman. “Leave Me” sports an edgy bass-laden groove churning beneath droning deep house chords with delayed vocal meanderings. Despite its brevity, the 54-second snippet manages to establish a foreboding tone while still enticing curiosity with its lilting synth stabs and varied singers. This track boasts all the trappings of an after-hours gem — keep an ear out for its upcoming release on Moda Black.
Daley Padley, the producer and DJ known as Hot Since 82, shows no signs of slowing his 2012 streak with the release of his latest EP Hot Jams Volume 2 on Noir Music. He’s planted his deep seed on labels ranging from Get Physical and Moda Black to Warung Recordings and Defected with a smattering of top notch originals and remixes. If there’s one thing that makes for a lasting impression these days, it’s a producer’s ability to develop a distinctive sound and Hot Since 82 has certainly done that. His low ends are about as deep as they come and tend to dominate the melodic force of the song, making for music that is both eerie and infectious. Check out the his four new originals below.
Leeds-based producer Hot Since 82 is still quite fresh off the success of his remix of Yousef‘s “Beg” but he’s back with jaw-dropping remix of Shadow Child‘s already stellar summer release “So High.” The structure of the song remains largely intact, but Hot Since 82 slaps on a bass line that is deeper than deep and reworks and reverses the deep chord progressions into something simple yet absolutely enslaving. This remix was debuted on Pete Tong’s show on Friday and we’re just giddy with glee that it’s already seeing its official release today.
