Greg Pidcock – Blame Game EP
As co-heads of the acclaimed Hot Creations imprint, Jamie Jones and Lee Foss have been revealing their abilities outside the world of producing and DJing, showing they have an ear for A&R as well. Montreal-based Greg Pidcock hooked up with Jones and Foss just a year ago, and since then has been busy working on a full length album for the label. “Blame Game” shines light on Pidcock’s production abilities, laying out melodic deep house grooves that coincide with just the sound Hot Creations has been championing in recent years. Richie Hawtin-backed Minus artist Hobo provides two remixes dubbed “Shamed” and “Named.” The two reworks breathe life into the original, adding an upbeat boost on “Shamed” and a darker techno guise on “Named.” The Blame Game EP is set to release June 17th.
