Since his early releases for labels like Noir Music and Moda Black, Leeds-based DJ, producer, remixer and label owner Daley Padley has grown his Hot Since 82 brand into one of the UK’s top house exports. Channelling influences from early Chicago house tracks, combining them with more recent UK trends, and adding his own carefully crafted style of melody-focused club music, Padley has come out of his studio with a level of quality that’s found him release with Get Physical and Truesoul,
remix names like Green Velvet and Rudiememtal, and drop tracks on his own label from the likes of Booka Shade, Cristoph, Darius Syrossian and Huxley. His newest project finds him release eight dynamic, summertime house anthems, with a thick low end, warming melodies and vocal work from Jem Cooke and Alex Mills, the album is a major event not only for Hot Since 82, but Knee Deep In Sound, and international house music as a whole.
Where to start:
‘Buggin’ – Smooth stabs, big basslines and a spirit-lifting top line
‘Therapy’ – UK influenced vocal work and tightly filtered pluck melodies
‘Bloodlines’ – Chunky house banger with plenty of rolling adlibs and hi-pass filters
