“Feel it coming on, I waited for so long…”
AT LONG LAST. After listening to countless set rips, low quality versions and minute & a half previews, “Benediction” by Hot Natured (Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Luca C, Ali Love) was finally given its proper release this past week. Without a doubt, “Benediction” is one of the top five best songs of 2012. From the moment those opening strings come in to the first breath of ceremonious vocals, “Benediction” becomes one of those songs that consumes your soul and overtakes your life. It’s a beautifully crafted song filled with deep, radiant vibes + soaring, spiritual grooves. Aside from “Latch” by Disclosure, not too many other tracks this year have matched the raw, emotional power and effectiveness of “Benediction”. If “Benediction” is any indication of what’s to come on their upcoming album, then 2013 will surely be dominated by the sounds of Hot Natured.
