Review: Leeds-born Daley Padey, aka Hot Since 82, is known for many things but humility isn't one of them (just read his bio!). Currently standing at the top of the commercial house food chain, Padey reaffirms this anointed position with a sample of the sounds his Knee Deep In Sound label will be treating the White Isle to this summer with a fine sampler. Highlights include Lewis Boardman's sinister and deep "Lose Control", the sunnier uplifting vibes of Dee Montero's "Vedra" and Landmark's sleek and catchy "Lost In The Club".

Review: Swiss house producer Andrea Oliva has been a stable and important part of the tech-house wave post the minimal era of the mid 2000's. His music has been released all over the shop; with EPs on imprints like Saved, Cadenza, and Moonharbour, you get the picture. "Scream" is his new single, it comes courtesy of Knee Deep In Sound, and it's a natural big-room tech weapon backed by a powerful, wooly bassline to drag the dancers out of their seats. "Voices" is more beat-centric, carrying a dusty percussion muscle and one hell of a groove. Addictive and unstoppable.

Review: Mobilee boss Anja Schneider moonlights for Hot Since 82's label. The title track sees Schneider at her most dance floor-focused, with jittery percussion and siren riffs leading a pacey groove. By contrast, "Free Fall" is a minimal track in the classic sense - centred on a pitch-bent vocal that insinuates itself gradually into the arrangement, it is accompanied by a niggling acid line at every step of the journey. Knee Deep have commissioned two fine remixes; William Djoko turns the title track into a noisy, workout, led by a jarring rhythm, while on the Alex Arnout version of "Free Fall", the spirit of Lil' Louis is channeled for a spine-tingling, swirling chord climax

Review: Hot Since 83's Knee Deep In Sound returns with rising star Athea aka James Dutton, who is said to have spent the last decade 'percolating deep within the music industry' with a lifetime of musical appreciation standing behind him. Starting out with the tough and adrenalised progressive house of "Into The Deep", there's the then the Ibiza styled main room tech house of "Capoeira" which receives an absolutely killer remix by Leonardo Gonnelli. Nick Curly's right hand man Gorge also delivers a great rendition of the aforementioned track, delivering a typically funky and percussive driven slow burner, purposely built for the after-hours.

from $1.97
Review: The latest release on Hot Since 82's label comes from German duo Booka Shade. On this occasion, the pioneers of the 'trance house' sound turn the controls over to the remixers - with excellent results. French producer Olivier Mateu, aka Rodriguez Jr is best known for his releases on Mobilee and follows a similar approach to that work here. A pulsing, hypnotic groove and crisp drums provide the backdrop for a velvety vocal that rises like plumes of smoke over the arrangement. At the other end of the spectrum is the Denneyas ERD remix. More steely and driving, it still features evocative vocal lines like 'I tremble, you falter', but these breathy niceties are aligned to detuned but catchy hooks that recall Booka Shade's own sound.

Review: Berlin undisputed legends recruit Nottingham based vocalist on "Neon Gods", a sublime serving of pop-inflected tech house for late night superclub dancefloors courtesy of Hot Since '82's Knee Deep In Sound powerhouse. The original version is a dark and sleazy kind of groove for 6 AM hedonism with a rough and gutsy bassline and it's this version which is used for the dub. The "Vocal" mix has that famous Booka Shade bassline over some dark, moody and epic synth work for added suspense. This is one of those dark journey tracks you need for added pre-peak time impact. There's a convenient "Radio" edit too which effectively distils the essence of the track into three minutes.

Review: The latest release on Hot Since 82's label sees upcoming artist Cristoph flex his muscles. With releases already on Defected, Suara and Noir, he doesn't fail to impress with Go. The title track is a bass-heavy, booming techno tune with epic synth builds. "Transmittance" is in a similar vein, with enormous bass pulses taking centre stage as epic crescendo after crescendo ensues. The label has also drafted in some top class remixers; French producer Oxia turns "Transmittance" into a dark, pulsing techno groove, and Riva Starr's version of the title track has the same levels of squelchy bass as Timo Maas' infamous remix of "Doom's Night".

Review: Christopher Costigan likes to refer to himself simply as Cristoph when he's making tech-house, and his sleek, effective beats are a perfect match for that moniker. After a series of successful releases through the likes of Defected and Viva Music, he lands on the lesser known but equally appealing and promising Knee Deep In Sound label. "Closer" features Jinadu as the vocal charge, but the tune is all about the progressive nature of its beat roll and wide-eyed sonic landscapes; it's the sort of tune that someone like Digweed or Sasha would promote. There's also a heavier, more introspective dub mix, and a more tech-heavy version by Hot Since 82 - check it!

Review: Newcastle Upon Tyne's fast rising star Christoph returns with nine tracks of sheer power for Hot Since 82's powerhouse Knee Deep In Sound. Starting out with the slinky and seductive progressive house of "Closer", featuring Jinadu's soaring and elegant vocal work. Lead single "Alone" gets really adrenalised with its powerful arpeggio fuelling this pre-peak time weapon and yet again featuring some great vocals. Other highlights include the moody atmospherics of "Absent Mentor", which is perfect for the late night and label head honcho himself Daley Padley turning in a typically explosive rendition of "Closer" like he only can!

Review: Frankfurt DJ and producer Emanuel Satie made his name through labels like Get Physical and DFTD over the last three years, and we've grown fond of his techy house swing. Here we have a new EP on Knee Deep and it all starts with the funky swings of "Paffo's Riff", a dance-ready house bomb with a funky bassline and a hot piano riff dedicated to someone called Paffo. The rest is all pure house quality, with "Big Love" heading down techier zones; Guti remixes the title track into a deeper, more expansive DJ tool, and Pirupa transforms "Big Love" from dark to vibrant and playful. Hot DJ tools - come and get 'em!

Review: Mannheim's Gorge has sure carved a name out for himself over the last decade, as being part of a collective of tech house producers who defined a new strain of the sound in the late noughties. Working alongside close associate and local don Nick Curly as his right hand man in the studio for some time, he's since worked more or less on his own in recent times while continuing to run the established 8 bit imprint: which the pair started back in 2007. Real name Peter Waldmann, he serves up an explosive one here for Hot Since 82's Knee Deep In Sound powerhouse. There's some driving and entrancing tech house that employs his signature latin rhythms on "Ajala" which later gets a hi-tech soul styled rendition by the legendary Steve Lawler. This soulful, Carl Craig-ish tribute will sure create some life affirming moments on the dancefloor.

An ability to fuse emotive synth patterns and infectious grooves has seen him release on labels such as Moda Black, VIVa, Noir Music and most recently Knee Deep in Sound. The Hot Since 82 owned powerhouse presents his new hit prediction entitled "Closure". It's a pop inflected tech house journey, which features some seductive female vocals accompanying a moody/slinky groove that's perfect to lead into the late night. But just wait until that wailing melody comes roaring through the mix: hands up!

Iman Habib aka Habischman is a super talented production phenomenon that brings you "Moan", a driving progressive house style journey much like the following slow burner by James Grow entitled "Te Mar". Piem & Spencer K's "Lowrider" is more typical faire of the label on this bouncy and rolling tech house groover that will rock White Isle punters this year too. Druggy afterhours minimal is covered courtesy of Veerus & Maxie Devine who serve up the rather Mobilee-ish "The Church".

The remix comes from pioneering producers Booka Shade who work their magic on the track. The first release is a clear example that, in an industry where labels are not hard to come by, Daley continues to claim his place at the forefront of electronic music.
The label will give us an insight into Daley's production process as the Knee Deep In Sound imprint sees Daley take full creative control.

Review: London producer Jansons is the latest artist to appear on Hot Since 82's label - and this diverse release suggests that this is not the last we will hear of him. "Ensemble" blurs the boundaries between house and techno with its buzzing bass and insistent back beats, while on "Spinnin", he takes inspiration from the sound of late 90s West Coast house to create a hazy, dub-heavy tribal groove. Most impressive is the title track, where insistent piano keys and a ponderous spoken word vocal crash in over a jittery, jacking track. Phil Weeks turns it into a spiky percussive affair on his rework, while Doc Martin's take on "Spinnin" sees the veteran US producer add some tripped out disco flavour to the mix.

Review: Hot Since 82's Knee Deep In Sound is back with Kuo Climax, a Spanish producer and DJ from Malaga. "Alone" is rolling, slinky tech house with killer chords and one tightly programmed rhythm that will appeal to fans of Saved or Gruuv. "Long Time" keeps on with the rolling groove but is definitely more rowdy and suited to the peak time for mega parties on the White Isle. It gets a killer remix by Ben Grunnell which is clean cut and to the point; not as druggy, more summery, but definitely as funky. Leftwing & Kody's remix of "Alone" has one absolute killer of a drop that soon gives way adrenalised and atmospheric progressive house groove.

Review: Bumping and shuffling tech house for the peak time by London's Leftwing & Cody. Known for their work on such labels as Hot Creations and Viva, they are stepping out on Hot Since '82's Knee Deep In Sound. Tracks "Carnival" and "Control" are rolling, druggy, peak time numbers that just reek of a main room dancefloor on the island and demand your attention, just as much as anything on Gruuv, put it that way! But it's third track "Crazy" which is the real highlight here and just like the name, it's all that. A latin infused percussive workout that you could imagine Steve Lawler or Paco Osuna hammering out. Interested yet?

This time it's over to the Dane with the midas touch: Noir. "Nightwalker" features rapid fire snares and one seriously bumping bassline beneath dreamy pads and generous washes of white noise: everything you need really! Second track "Morning Shadows" is more straight ahead. A dark and brooding journey track with an infectious melody and razor sharp arpeggio backed by a high octane rhythm department. This is made to play!

Review: The Hot Since 82 powerhouse that is Knee Deep In Sound returns with more main room, peak time tech house this time courtesy of Belgian Ramon Tapia. He's been on a roll at the moment with releases on Great Stuff and Toolroom of late. "Karma" is a dark and rolling affair that's hard on the percussion and moody on the atmosphere. It channels that same kind of energy that Carlo Lio does. The remix up next by Tiger Stripes sees the Scandinavian artist take the track into tunnelling hypnotic techno territory with its sonar like synth stabs while Berlin's Re:You steps up to the challenge but takes the track into his city's kind of aesthetic on this deep, slinky and atmospheric rendition for the late night.

Review: Greece's Mihalis Safras is still at it which is nice to see. Making it big with some great minimal tunes just after the mid noughties but jumping ship at just the right time with some pretty decent tech house tunes afterwards on Traum and Great Stuff to name but a few. Now doing his things for Hot Since 82's Knee Deep In Sound and it's a fitting home really. "Barrage" is druggy, main room tech house that's perfect for those pre peak time moments. The remix by Secondcity though is proper peak time business the rips through the speakers like a steamtrain; you could imagine Paco Osuna or Carlo Lio smashing this out. "Save Me" is a more classic sounding 808 jam with a bumping bassline and old school vocal samples for the more retro inclined, with an exotic, slinky tech house remix by Hot Creations man Russ Yallop.

Review: Phillip Meier aka Sante is back. The rising star from Southern Germany presents us with "909 Basement" for the Knee Deep In Sound powerhouse. The title track lives up to its name, with the drum machine's stomp and hiss driving the track for the most part and perfect for sub level shut ins that go 'til late. "Text Message" is more the kind of funky party starting tech house you'd expect from the label: tight rhythm, sharp bassline and trippy synth melodies and works a treat. Finally "Endless" is more of a tough and bass driven DJ tool for the peak time that will elevate adrenaline levels as good as a Gruuv or Saved track anyway.

Review: Toronto veteran Sean Miller appears on Hit Since 82's Knee Deep In Sound. First up is "Cant Stop", this is the kind of surefire, breaks driven tech house that the likes of Jordan Peak has been releasing of late and if this is gonna be a trend for 2016 then we know the punters are gonna be all over it! "Clublife" is more direct and in your face; a booming, funked up and peak time tech house monster in the vein of reliable imprints Gruuv or Saved.

Review: Russian tech house star in New York City Serge Devant is back, this time on Hot Since 82's Knee Deep In Sound for some tough and rolling tech house shenanigans. Hot off releases recently for Crosstown Rebels and Circus Recordings, the Confidence EP lives up to its name on these three very assertive exercises in dancefloor dynamics. The title track's humming sub bass is pure adrenaline, complimented by tough drums, Kevin Saunderson style synth leads and rushy laser zaps. It gets a bit deeper, sexier and funky on the stripped back DJ tool "Life Trap" which is perfect sonic artillery for the late night while "Frenzy" hammers the message home in true style with its booming bassline, swing fuelled percussion and heady synth sounds signalling the start of peak time; all after the massive drop of course.

Review: It's that time of year again, y'know the time to pack your passport, muscle-bearing white vests and lots of sun cream. Well, if you're not hitting Miami for the Winter Conference this year, Knew Deep In Sounds new MWC sampler will have to do. In fact it'll do very nicely indeed, with seven of their freshest cuts in a Hot Since 82 mini mix by - highlights include Montell's sparse, cool jacker "I Can't Remember" abd Cuartero's arpeggiated acid-electro-houser "Bring Back".

Review: It's that time of year again when all the industry heavyweights and wannabes alike converge in Miami for WMC. Deals are signed, hits are made and stars are born and the likes of Hot Since '82 and his Knee Deep In Sound imprint are playing centre stage. This compilation no doubt showcases what had hands in the air on Nikki beach's dancefloors this Summer such as Moonwalk's absolutely massive "Reflection"; the perfect track to transition into the peak time and possibly the most razor sharp bassline you'll hear all year. Honourable mentions also to Anhouser & Who Else who get well funky and progressive on "Apology" which sounds like it could have been on Sasha & Digweed's Northern Exposure a good twenty years ago and Outstrip's "Galosha" definitely the most fierce cut on here; a stripped back, slinky tech house tool that's made more the late shift.

Review: Ahead of the annual ADE, Hot Since 82's label has compiled an exclusive seven-track release. It starts with Romano Alfieri's "The Flagman", a rolling chord-heavy slice of filtered techno that breaks, drops and builds in all the right places. Vibe Killers' "Means of Escape" sees the tempo slowing down to focus on the house sound of New York as tribal drums underpin muffled vocal chants. The sampler swings back towards techno as Montel Citizenn drops the dense rhythm and trance-y synths of "I Feel So" - which, rather fittingly, has echoes of the classic Dutch techno record, Timeless Altitude by Secret Cinema - while Sydney Blu's "Mind Games" is more contemporary sounding thanks to its rolling snares, shrieking siren riffs and wild build-ups.

Review: Brazil's Wehbba is back following up a great collaboration with the legendary Christian Smith and releases on Systematic and My Favourite Freaks. On the Turning Point EP, the title track is a dark journey that will have you surrendering to the void in no time with its grinding bass and wonky melodics supported by the most dramatic elements. The Bridge" is much more uplifting and adrenalised with rich melodies and emotive pads being supported by a finely tuned rhythm department: this one will work the floor for sure. Some great remixes are on offer here, but for our money its UK star Huxley's slinky and sexy progressive house remix of "The Bridge" which really shines.

Review: Liverpudlian legend Yousef makes an appearance outside of his usual home of Circus Recordings: the in house label of the club he's been a resident at for many years with his soulful and emotive tech house journey for Hot Since 82's Knee Deep In Sound. "Life Is Too Short" makes a departure from the usual tough and rolling tech sounds aimed squarely at White Isle dancefloors. It features many evocative and life affirming moments; from its powerful strings, sunny chord progressions and all round funky groove: this is a hit prediction right here! There is a couple of great remixes too: Italian young gun Romano Alfieri giving the a track late a '90s West Coast tribal tech house makeover and Iranian DJ Habischman gives it the suspense filled and atmospheric prog-house treatment.

Review: Given that the first Zoo Brazil EP dropped way back at the dawn of the millennium, it would be fair to call John Anderrson (now separated from original studio partner Johan Emmoth) something of a house veteran. Despite this vintage, he's still capable of producing tasty dancefloor treats, as "Sand" conclusively proves. The track is bouncy and groovy, with synthesized steel drum melodies - occasionally doused in echo - tumbling down over a synth bass-driven deep house rhythm. Mendo's remix is a little more percussive and tribal in feel - think big drum builds, spacey synth pulses and carnival drum hits - while La Fleur opts for a deeper, tech-tinged interpretation full of dreamy chords and percussion hits that seemingly dart across the sound space at will.
