Phil Kieran – Going There / Getting Away (HFT032)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2014 by dk

Phil Kieran - Going There  Getting Away (HFT032)Accomplished producer, Phil Kieran, makes his Hotflush debut with a two-track ode to hedonistic flight. “Yes I’m going there” goes the lead track’s refrain. Where ‘there’ is, who knows? But you can enjoy a soundtrack of sun-kissed piano chords and heraldic horns on the way. As Kieran ‘gets away’ on the A2, the mood takes a turn for the dark. Lost in the early hours, pockets full of miniature plastic bags and no money…thank fuck for the throb of that kick in these lonely but exciting times.

Richy Ahmed and Ryan Elliott, offer their interpretations of Kieran’s bacchanalia on the B-side with the former creating a barnstorm of minor stabs and attitude, and the latter tearing it up, down, left and right with his broken beats and wailing vox. Gone there. Got Away.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 4, 2012 by dk

Jamie Jones & Lee Foss’s Hot Creations offshoot, Hot Waves, releases its third  stupendous compilation this September. The 14-track compilation is released digitally on the 24th  September. There’s a double-pack 12” featuring six killer  tracks from the compilation released on the 10th September.
Set up as a platform for burgeoning producers the Hot Waves compilations have gone from strength to strength. Giving a voice to many new producers as well as stalwarts from the Hot Creations stable, this third Volume is probably  the strongest yet.
Hot Waves vol. 3 features artists from previous compilations such as Alexis Raphael who delivers his call to arms: ‘Warhorn’ and French producer Julien Sandre who teams up with Italian Dast for the brilliant ‘Wanna Be’ – another driving house monster perfect for Hot Waves! Wildkats, are back teaming up with TBoy to produce the acid monster ‘Denied’ and Dirty Channels make their second Hot Waves appearance with the excellent ‘So Special’.
Hot Creations artists Lee Foss, Miguel Campbell, Robert James, Richy Ahmed,Mark Jenkyns, Digitaria, Funky Fat and wAFF also make appearances alongside new artists such as Lee Webster with the hypnotic soul-infused slice of dirty house, ‘Spend All Her Money’. New Italian artist Bartolemeo delivers the psychedelic slow breaks of ‘Jean Is Not Death’ and Amsterdam’s Tom Ruijg’s drum-tastic ‘Space Frase’ leads to the 80’s inspired ‘Zohra’ by Guilhem and Remi Mazet.

Robert James delivers another battle weapon in the James arsenal with fantastic ‘Body Movement’ whilst wAFF delivers the sublime ‘Sunshine’, a fantastic slice of hedonistic house. Miguel Campbell and Richy Ahmed come together to make the electro-inspired ‘Tell Me Why’, whilst Lee Foss delivers another corker in the form of ‘Life On Mars’. Mark Jenkyns is clearly going from strength to strength with his latest ‘Moola’. Finally there is an exclusive remix  by Funky Fat of Digitaria’s huge ‘Crazy Life’! A veritable feast of beats and  Basslines!

Watch out for Hot Waves 4 scheduled for release in late November this year with some more sonic delights!

Red Dot Relief – rebuilding Japan Together

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 22, 2011 by dk

The current situation of the earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear plants is in a way the most severe crisis in the 65 years since World War II.” Naoto Kan, Japanese Prime Minister

What is Red Dot Relief?
It is a group of artists and supporters of the dance music community who are asking YOU to compare those factors mentioned above and to make magic happen!! Red Dot Relief is a call to action across the dance music community in a bid to raise money and spread awareness of the disaster stricken regions of Japan. Spearheaded by Visionquest (Seth Troxler) & Friends alongside the Tuning Spork Efforts Team we are trying to influence others to follow and donate whatever they can to the disaster fund by involving not only artists but the wider community in this cause including event organisers, promoters, club owners, clubbers, agencies, music labels and the supporting press.

For our Red Dot Relief proposal and full details please click here

How can you help?
If you are an artist
– Help us promote this effort via your social networking websites, mailing lists and most importantly word of mouth (talking has been proven to still be the most effective way to exchange ideas and turn them into reality).
– We would then ask you to donate a part of your artist fee from a particular event (to take part in this effort we suggest a minimum donation of 10% of your average fee).

If you are a promoter or venue/club/lounge…
– We would like to ask you to allow a team of volunteers to spread fund collection buckets around your venue/party.
– Clearly display the Red Dot around your venue to show that you support this effort.
-Suggest to your artists and their agents prior to the event participating and donating to the cause (minimum of 10% as previously suggested).
– All promotional material related to the event should bear the red dot for this cause to spread awareness about this project and maximise exposure to your audience which is key to making the project more successful.

If you are a label/agency/clubber
– There are many ways of getting involved such as making a direct donation as a business or as a civilian; influence your friends and family to do the same and get involved by helping spread the word via all communication means available to you.

Music is life and love is the answer. Let’s make this happen!!
