Premiere: HOSH shares GHEIST-assisted ‘The Watergate Affair,’ launches new label
HOSH, formerly known as Diynamic regular H.O.S.H., has taken the next step in his career by revamping his name as he launches his very own imprint, Fryhide. After kicking off the label’s debut with a free download mix of his forthcoming LP, Stories From Sa Talaia, the German house player is now releasing parts of the album as separate EPs.
Chapter 1 already includes some heavy heaters, one of which is HOSH’s anthemic collaboration with GHEIST. Having met the band’s vocalist, Lou, at Watergate, the aptly titled “The Watergate Affair” features a stripped-down canvas with pulsating bass, sparse stabs of piano, and simple synthesizers that allow the vocals to become its centerpiece. Lou was instructed to push himself and experiment with his songwriting, resulting in a gorgeous, ethereal glow that is present throughout the piece’s entire seven minutes.
“The Watergate Affair’s” anthemic nature feels like a combination of a Temper Trap hit with HOSH’s house sensibilities, leading the record to be an item that will be lighting plenty of faces throughout the Summer as it’s rinsed by the German producer himself and his peers. Stories From Sa Talaia, Chapter 1 will be released on June 9.
‘Stories From Sa Talaia, Chapter 1’ is available for preorder here.
