Heavy disco action from Melbourne's Lightspeed Recordings on this remix EP from DJ Agent 86. Title track "So Hot" is actually less disco than it is 80s funk, with a hip-hop inspired vocal and more than a hint of Chromeo about it. As far as remixes go, there's something to please everyone; Jayl Funk takes the hip-hop elements of the track, isolating the catchiest hooks and bringing them to the fore. Space Ranger takes a cosmic direction with his remix with a bouncy Italo-inspired bassline. By far the most inspired remix comes from DJ Madness, who takes buttery analogue bass and wraps it around the slap bass of the original, while ethereal vocals float over the top. Fromage Disco's rework takes a more mid-tempo approach, but with a big room sensibility incorporating a rising synth siren into proceedings, whilst Fang Jr takes the slo-mo approach, stretching out the vocals across a rich section of Balearic violins. Finally, Mr Moonshine increases the speed and turns the whole thing disco-rock with a 70s guitar solo and diva vocal that works surprisingly well within the context of the original.
