“Walk Around Like You’re Bigger Than Prince”

Hot Since 82If you’ve been following this blog for a while the name Hot Since 82 should not be new to you, he did co-produce BITR8’s No. 10 EP of 2012 after all.

Daley Padley has over the last few years built up a reputation for creating bass-orientated, club-ready house music having released records on Noir Music and Moda Black and accumulating quite a collection of remixes, including last month’s edit of Rudimental’s ‘Right Here’.

He’s now back with another remix, this time of Chicago electronica pioneer Green Velvet and “Bigger Than Prince”. To start with the track maintain’s the original’s minimalism but, as you’d expect of a remix from the Leeds-based producer, the record is packed full of bounce and bass not to mention a constant sense of indecision as to the correct pitch of the vocals. The track incorporates everything that has made Hot Since 82 a BeatPort-conquering success: a big, fat house beat incorporating a wide variety of percussion and a masterful ability to control distortion on his throbbing bass synths.

No matter what Padley does or where he goes on a record he has an incredible ability to make your head bob, whether you want it to or not.
