Off World Lover (Will Clarke remix) - (5:39) 123 BPM
Review: Hot Natured; what more can we say! With Jamie Jones headling events worldwide and Lee Foss collaborating with MK as Pleasure State, fans will be glad that they're collaborating again and doing what they do best; punchy, pop inflected house. This time not on Hot Creations, rather their new imprint Emerald City. "Off World Lover" is another epic summertime anthem, once again featuring the vocal talents of Ali Love, whose singing bears an uncanny resemblance to the King Of Pop at times that its impressive. That dark bassline really does it too. Just when you thought it couldn't get better they get Bristolian rising star Will Clarke delivering a bouncy, bass driven remix in the same vein as his recent hit "Spandex".
Review: Ah, Hot Creations, home to the hippest house music that cites disco and 25 year-old club anthems as its inspirations. Here, label head honchos Jamie Jones and Lee Foss revive their Hot Natured project for a sweet stroll through smiley vocal house territory in the company of one-time electrofunk revivalist Ali Love. "Benediction" is good for what it is - a vaguely deep, pleasant Hot Creations record - but the real killer here is the remix of former single "Forward Motion" by crusty old US garage head Mark "MK" Kinchen. He recalls those glory days of tough but groovy MK dubs with a rework straight out of 1993.
