‘Jack’s Back’ by SEFF is now available on vinyl from Juno or Phonica.
Launching Hot Creations into 2015, Seff brings a solid three track release that defies the reputation that January has for being an uneventful month in music. A-side ‘Like That’ brings chugging electronic synths and raw bass, getting the release off to a strong start. Then title track Jack’s Back hits it home, an energetic and rousing dance floor filler with no intention of letting 2015 start slow. To round out the trio is ‘Zoot’ bringing a darker vibe that leaves a lasting - if a little ominous - impression as the EP draws to a close.
Hot Creations continues to grow year over year and 2015 will be no exception, with a solid start to the release schedule in SEFF’s ‘Jack’s Back’ seeking to set an exciting precedent for the year to follow.
2015 is just around the corner and Hot Creations will be appearing at NYE celebrations around the world in various forms. Perhaps you still need an idea of where to go, or perhaps you already have tickets for one of these nights. Either way here's a quick recap of all the events the Hot Creations crew will be appearing at on 31st December:

Luca C & Brigante make their first release on Hot Creations with their second collaboration with Roisin Murphy, titled “Invisions”. Roisin tends to lend serious weight to everything she touches and Invisions is no exception, her distinct caramel tinged vocals are accompanied by warm italo disco melodies and a deep, driving bassline.
The accompanying club edit sharpens the edges a little and reshapes the track to fit the floor. Label boss Jamie Jones steps in for the first remix,tellingly titled as “Jamie Jones Submerged Mix” his direction takes the track psychedelically deep. The second remix is delivered by heavy hitter Luke Solomon, making his debut appearance on Hot Creations. Luke takes the track even further out there, distorting the bass and cutting into the vocal to create a track entirely different form the original mix.
Pleasure State represents a collaboration of three different but creative minds. Comprising of MK, Lee Foss and Anabel Englund the former on DJ and production duties, whilst Anabel lends her vocal talent to the project. After a debut live performance at this year's We Are FSTVL they have made their first official release “Ghost In The System” available on Hot Creations.
On the title track “Ghost In The System” all three artists influence can clearly be heard throughout, with Anabel's spectral vocal rising clearly to the top of the production. MK and Lee Foss have a very natural collaborative style, often both producers work can be identified in their style and approach to the track.
Track two “Subject Matter” isn't as straight forward, with the melody hovering over everything, only breaking for vocals every once in a while. The release is rounded out by Carl Craig's remix of “Electricity”, the track that formalised the union made between Pleasure State. Carl choosing to dial back the vocals and let the track breath on bass and melody alone.
