Holy hotness. Hot Since 82, that is. Daley Padley, the fantastic House, Techno, and Tech-House producer/DJ hailing from the UK behind the monster remix of “Bigger Than Prince” is back with a vengeance. And not to say he really disappeared, as Hot Since 82 has been touring nonstop and blowing up artists on his label Knee Deep in Sound. But I must admit it’s been a long time since I’ve heard a Hot Since 82 production that has gotten me moving quite the way “Warnings” does, which was released a little over a week ago for free download on his SoundCloud page.
I first heard “Warnings” on Mark Knight’s Toolroom Radio podcast and I was a bit surprised that the sound I was hearing was a Hot Since 82 production. The reason being, I’d expect Mr. Knight to produce a song like this before I’d expect to hear it from Hot Since 82, who often hovers around the darker side of House and Techno. “Warnings” has all the makings of a classic throw-back House track, accentuated by the soulful vocals found throughout, but it does have that driving Hot Since 82 rhythm that we’ve come to expect after his many years in the game.
“Warnings” has instantly been added to my favorite House tracks of 2015 and I’m looking forward to the next dose of Hotness from Mr. Padley!
