Two years in the making and Hot Since 82’s new full-length album ‘8-track’ is finally here. It’s been well worth the wait.
Created in the midst of a hectic touring schedule and while mourning his best friend, ‘8-track’ presents the breadth of Hot Since 82’s ever-impressive work as a producer, holding up a mirror to his DJ sets in the process. Merging his eclectic range of influences into his driving house and techno templates, it’s a deeply personal record that reflects a challenging time in his life. It’s a record made for dancefloors but which holds enough depth and diversity to demand repeated listening anywhere and everywhere outside of clubs and festivals.
“Proceeds from this album will be donated to ‘Mind’ which is a mental health charity committed to supporting those in need by promoting good mental health and offering high-quality support so that no-one feels alone when dealing with mental health problems. This is a cause very close to my heart as I have lost a dear friend who battled mental health problems.” says Daley Padley (Hot Since 82).
