Hot Electronic: July 2022 Edition
A collection of some of the very best electronic music we discovered over June/start of July. Featuring a mixture of 90s/2000s influenced house, dance, alternative and garage music to set yourself free to. Enjoy!
Rhodos - Ultraflex
Gleaming, hot and sticky - this is drinking Smirnoff Ice at a nightclub in northern Europe in 2010.
The production and vocals induce the warmth and hypnosis of such a memory - teleporting you right back to the sticky floors, glittery tops and plastic tinged longing in the air of those summer nights. Rhodos is a masterpiece.
B.O.T.A ( Baddest Of Them All) / Move To - Eliza Rose, Interplanetary Criminal
B.O.T.A is drenched with some of the best and most mesmerizing characteristics of 90s electronic music, while still being something entirely new and unique. This feels like it was playing in the background of a party you attended in the mid-2000s - you will not be able to stop listening to this song, that is a promise.
hollaback bitch - Shygirl & Channel Tres
This newest release from Shygirl features some gloriously nostalgic elements ( the bassline when it first comes in reminded me slightly of the 1994 classic Saturday Night by Whigfield) and of course, opening with the classic motorola ringtone, the ultimate status symbol in the mid 2000s. ‘hollaback bitch’ features flawless minimalist production that grabs your attention and never lets up, this is dark, mysterious and hypnotic.
What’s A Girl To Do? (Lone Remix) - Lou Hayter, Lone
Lush textures of the 80s mixed with house percussion. A gorgeous remix that sounds like red velvet. True luxury.
The Hitchiker’s Guide to the Fallacy - Antony Szmierek
A stream of consciousness over a warm electronic house instrumental - exploring the downfalls of meal deals, not reading as many books as before, and other thoughts, all ending in “I’m the hitchhiker, you're a galaxy” - all flowing together perfectly and resulting in something truly wonderful.
My Fear - Wittyboy
Garage percussion, uneasy vocals and arpeggiated synths; seasoned with deeply melancholic, reverb drenched instrumentation. Let this lead you astray and into the dark of the night.
Top of The Block - Satin Sheets
Satin Sheets lives up to his name - by releasing shimmering productions that sound like they have travelled to your ears from another time. Lush samples and synthesis, with grungy trip-hop esque drums, this is just the best.
Feel About You - Melle Brown, Annie Mac
Fun all around. A collaboration between DJ and producer Melle Brown and pioneering DJ, broadcaster and writer Annie Mac. Deliciously warm house textures, a vocal that breaks in all the right places, and a beat that just will not let up - raw unbridled joy in music format, you need this.
Nancy - Chase Icon
A bass fuelled extravaganza with seductive vocals and industrial synthesis - as with everything Chase Icon releases, this is relentlessly addictive.
