He is one of the finest and hottest house music producers around that we have come across in last few months. He has been named “Breakthrough Djs Of The Year 2013” by DjMag. A Leeds based dj/producer has not just risen from underground circuit but blown our mind off.
We are not going to dig in the distant past therefore, let’s talk about present. He has just released his debut album called “Little Black Book” on Moda Black lable on 22nd October. His music is fresh and reminds you of good old days of house and yet keeping it up to date. It’s deep, dark and bit techno. The complete album is full of pure bliss sounds. Something that one must have in his/her collection. His tour dates can be found on his facebook page.
In a recent interview given to DjMag, he said (about his music) that he is not trying to make deep house sounds, it’s always deep-ish and more importantly producing stuff that he really likes.
Here is the tracklist of the much talked about album of the year, Little Black Book:
1. Hot Since 82: Shadows (feat. Alex Mills)
2. Hot Since 82: Planes & Trains
3. Hot Since 82: Chords
4. Rudimental: Right Here (Hot Since 82 Remix)
5. Green Velvet: Bigger Than Prince (Hot Since 82 Remix)
6. Hot Since 82: Hot’s Groove
7. Shadow Child: So High (Hot Since 82 Remix)
8. Hot Since 82: Hurt You (Lee Curtiss Remix)
9. Hot Since 82: Insane I Know
10. Hot Since 82: Transitions
11. Hot Since 82: Things You Do To Me (feat. Thomas Gandey)
12. Hot Since 82: Cry Mumbai
13. Hot Since 82 vs. Joe T Vannelli: The End
We liked all the tracks but have couple of them on loops for sometime now, for example, Shadows (amazingly deep and dark), Rudimental’s Right Here (tripy one, nice club sound), Hurt You (it’s all about drum and bass) and finally, The End (it has bit gothic and contemporary feel to it with nice beats).
We hope to see him in India soon…
