Hot Since 82 offloads new LP, ‘8-track’Hot Since 82

For the past two-years, 8-track has been at the center of Hot Since 82’s artistic focus, awaiting its eventual release. And as each of the grains of sand in the hourglass gently fall from top to bottom, time has run out, and 8-track has at last arrived.

In what is no numerical match with its title, 8-track puts forth 13 new songs, three of which preceded the LP, “Buggin’,” “Bloodlines,” and “You Are The Light.” 

The meticulous sonic stitching of 8-track allows one album inclusion to seamlessly and imperceptibly transition into the next. Technically, 8-track is temperate and minimalistic, contained yet affective. This is Hot Since 82’s stylistic signature, and he presses it upon 8-track with expert ease.

Hot Since 82 strikes a clean balance between instrumental songs and vocal utilizing numbers. Numerically, Jem Cooke is the most noteworthy of the artists featured on 8-track, with not two, not three, but five respective cameos. The sole other vocalist to get an 8-track invite is Alex Mills, whose talents extend to three of the 13 total cuts.

Toronto’s Electric Island announces venue change for 2019 season finaleElectric Island 1

Toronto’s Electric Island series is characteristically known for their long-established home on the Toronto Islands. Known for their signature day-into-night outdoor parties on the island, the seasonal event series has faced an imminent challenge threatening their home base. 

Leading into their final event of the season, Electric Island has announced their move to Ontario Place’s West Island, a convenient replacement for the long weekend festivities. Keeping in line with their trademark island atmosphere, the new venue offers an improved landscape for the festival infrastructure. 

Throughout the summer, the Toronto Island has been affected by record high water levels, causing flooding in certain areas of the land and a temporary suspension of the ferry service to the island’s main beach area, Hanlan’s Point.

The 2019 season so far has seen stunning performances from artists like Bedouin, Hot Since 82 and Seth Troxler during their first three events throughout the summer. The season finale held over the August 31-September 1 weekend brings highly anticipated bookings to the city, including the debut of masked German headliner, Boris Brejcha and the return of Dirtybird kingpin Claude Vonstroke

Good Morning Mix: Hot Since 82 delivers fresh BBC Radio 1 Essential MixHot Since 82

Flashback to 2013, the year that Hot Since 82 would make his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix debut. Pete Tong would go on to share the house music tastemaker’s two-hour effort over the BBC Radio 1 airwaves, to highlight Hot Since 82 as a standout electronic act. A benchmark in the budding career of any aspiring artist, a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix conveys a clear message: The producer who lands one has what it takes to continue to rise in the intensely competitive modern music market.

That was then for Hot Since 82, who now returns to BBC Radio 1 to curate another Essential Mix for the reputed radio station. Hot Since 82’s 2019 Essential Mix expounds upon the producer’s refined underground sound, to package productions hailing from respected labels like Cocoon Records, Defected Records, and Proton into an undulating two-hours of easy-flowing house music.

House and techno titans will unite again atop Detroit’s riverfront Hart Plaza for another Memorial Day weekend segment of Movement Festival. So far, organizers have pulled back the curtain on only a small, yet lustrous, corner of their secured repertoire, including hot-button house authority, Chris Lake, the aptly named, old-school-meets-new-school Hot Since 82, Belgium’s fiercely flourishing techno temptress, Amelie Lens, and local-turned-global rap icon, Danny Brown, who satiates the fest’s longtime affinity for bolstering Detroit-native talent.

The festival, this year pegged for May 25-27 has long acted as a summertime commencement in Detroit–the techno promised land–as well as a harbinger of the annual electronic festival season at large. The 2019 installment will also include a live set from Orbital, who have been a pair of instrumental components in electronic music’s acclimation in both the UK and US fronts since the late ’80s. The upcoming edition will be the duo’s Movement debut, as well as their first live performance in Detroit in nearly two decades.

If last year’s expectation-eclipsing lineup, which included Claude VonStroke, Lee Burridge, Maceo Plex, REZZ, Dubfire, and a face-melting slew of multifarious talent, spanning house, techno, hip-hop, and experimental subsets across the electronic emblem, the ten thus-far-released acts are only a Costco-size sample of what’s to come.

Movement 2019 acts thus far include (in alphabetical order):

AMELIE LENS
CHRIS LAKE
DANNY BROWN
DJ BONE
DJ NOBU

HEIKO LAUX

Hot Since 82 releases second single, ‘Bloodlines’ from forthcoming ‘8-track’ projectHot Since 82

Daley Padley, better known as UK DJ and producer Hot Since 82, is out with the second single from his forthcoming album. Titled “Bloodlines,” the track infuses groovy techno arrangements with a propelling bassline, with a steady floor-ready beat. The new single is energetic and complex, and the addition of soulful vocal samples adds a compelling dynamic to the track. Padley has released two versions of “Bloodlines.”

The single follows his June release, “Buggin,’” and both tracks are set to be featured on 82’s upcoming album 8-track, which will be released in early 2019. Padley has stated that 8-track provides him with a “blank canvas” that will help him further his creative exploration. The project is set to be released via his own label, Knee Deep in Sound.
