Hot Since 82 shares first single, ‘Buggin” from new album
One of Britain’s most decorated producers, Hot Since 82, has just shared a collaborative track, “Buggin'” with London-based Jem Cooke, foreshadowing his new album, 8-track, with gusto.
While the HS82 project officially hatched in 2011, the artist was formerly known in smaller circles by his real name, Daley Padley, playing 10+–hour DJ sets around Leeds and London since he was just a teenager. HS82 drove his way to deep house stardom with chart-topping releases like “Knee Deep In Louise” and his remix of Green Velvet‘s “Bigger Than Prince.” Since 2014, the producer has been releasing his music via his own label, Knee Deep In Sound—his newest album notwithstanding.
“Buggin'” explores the early 2000s “noughty” house Padley was initially enamored of: atmospheric, sensuous, and downright intoxicating. Cooke’s desirous, rippling vocals float over the track like an incantation, followed closely by its ambient melody and stuttering hi-hats.
The full club-inspired 8-track album is set for release in late 2018.
