His first release is a hard act to follow – “Let It Ride” which crept at the top of Beatport’s deep house chart for weeks. But Hot Since 82’s Hurt You EP pleases the ears on all levels – from the funky basslines to the sporadic mallet sounds. The EP was released digitally on the new London-based record label Moda Black run by the duo Jaymo & Andy George.
“Hurt You” provides us with that same bounce in the bassline that was felt in Let It Ride. “Sundown” is a bit darker, making the name incredibly appropriate. The synths will get you dreaming about a distant land – or party. We like it that way.

EP Name: Hurt You
Record Label: Moda Black
Release date: April 16
Genre(s): Deep house
Concept or theme behind EP: To be fresh.
EP production experience: The EP was done over a two-month period. Both tracks were sitting on my hard drive totally finished for about three months, they just needed the right home, and they got it. All my music is generally written with a hook or a bassline in mind or built around a sample that l find.
