Review: Following his debut release Dreams To Reality, which dropped on Hot Creations in 2019, rising star Joseph Edmund is back onboard with "Baewatch". It's one seriously boompty and minimal groove peppered with infectious R&B vocals atop, that is perfect tackle for the warm-up or after hours alike. Second offering "Aphrodites" is a tougher and more bass-driven tech house tool aimed squarely at the main room dancefloor, in the tradition of the classic Freak 'N Chic sound. Edmund's sound makes him unquestionably one to watch, with a plethora of unreleased tracks being sent out to key labels for the remainder of this year.
Review: Joseph Edmund is an underground house and techno DJ/Producer from the musical city of Manchester. After starting to DJ at the age of 19, he began playing at his hometown's best venues including Gorilla and Sankeys. First spotted by Hot Creations label boss Jamie Jones last year, when he debuted on sister label Hottrax, he's back with a couple more killer tunes here on the Dreams To Reality EP - which are aimed squarely at the main room at peak time. From the druggy, bass-driven minimal tech house of "Norrr" with its addictive pop vocals atop, followed up by the tough rolling banger "Fuego" which follows in the proper traditions of UK tech house.
Review: 2019 marks a landmark celebration in Saved Records history, as they call upon artists far and wide to commemorate their 15th birthday and 200th release. Nic Fanciulli's label has always stood as a benchmark for quality, whilst nurturing new talent and pushing the envelope as one of the most recognisable labels in dance music. An essential compilation for both dedicated label fans and newcomers alike, they present a compilation of all new exclusive material by a collection of the label's favourite DJs and producers. The ever reliable Dutchman Franky Rizardo delivers the entrancing "Air", rising Italian Alex Kennon delivers the tough rolling main room funk of "Who Cares", while Israeli veteran Gel Abril aims straight ahead with his direct groove "Entra" and the UK's own Denney & James Dexter deliver some dirty minimal tech house for the after hour on "C'mon" - among many more.
Review: Up next on Jamie Jones Hottrax imprint is ascendant Mancunian DJ/producer Joseph Edmund, following up great releases on Sola, Little Helpers and New Violence. The Pressure EP sees Edmund bang the party in proper style, as heard on the dirty acid bounce of the title track, the fierce and rolling funk attack of "Middle Man" or "Breathe" with its infectious and tough rolling groove - all after the massive drop of course. Hailed as one to watch by scene heroes such as Solardo and Mark Jenkyns - keep your eyes on Edmund moving forward into 2019.
