Hot Jams is a compilation from Hot Creations that showcases some of the up and coming talent from the ever bourgeoning label. The four track release is a club thumping EP with an exemplary original production from UK based, Neil Parkes. Wonkily titled, “Peil Narkes,” Neil Parkes delivers a dance floor destroyer in instrumental form. The tune simmers for the first three minutes as a walloping kick and sizzling hi-hat lay way for intermittent synth stabs and a discordant break down to build anticipation. The only release of the tune hits at the 3:35 mark where a neural synth symphony fires on all cylinders carrying you through until the end of the production. Set to be released November 4th via Hot Creations, the compilation features Lee Walker, Pete Dorling, and Greeko, and is available to pre-order HERE.

For this special 139th edition of The Dirt, we’ve teamed up with our homies, the Bixel Boys, who are quickly establishing themselves as ambassadors of the big-room underground sound. With their widely supported Black December EP (Sweat It Out!), recent Bring It On EP (Nervous Records), handful of addictive remixes/edits, and countless gigs in the bag, their career is gaining strong momentum that is sure to ride into 2014 and the many years to come. The Bixel Boys and myself have offered up our current favorite tracks touching on hip-hop, house, future bass, and more. ENJOY!

With the EP finally seeing release on Monday, Jamie has snipped up some long previews of all 4 tracks, giving us a better idea of just how hot these tunes really are. Planets, Spaceships definitely brings me back to the early days of Hot Creations, highlighting a deepness and darkness while retaining a sense of melody and foot-tapping goodness. √+

As the Indio dust is finally settling from two weeks of wind, heat and wild spirits across the polo fields, we look back at our favorite moments of this years Coachella Music Festival. With a staggering artist lineup each day making it almost impossible to catch every set we wanted to see, the most memorable performances are all that stand alone from such an incredible experience in the desert. Here are the “best of the fest” we have to give royalty to… Continue Reading
