Signalling a significant focus towards the strength of his label and artist development Hot Since 82 is set to launch a new album series “8-track”. Producer, label head and A&R Daley Padley aka Hot Since 82 will continue to nurture Knee Deep In Sound’s rich artist roster as they navigate their way towards full length LP studio output.
The inaugural edition of “8-Track” that will bear Cristoph’s name will serve to showcase his strength as a producer and unforgivingly confuse those still stuck in a world where house music and techno are separated by propped-up dividers. No stranger to the international club circuit, festival scene and record crates of his peers, Cristoph is a producer and DJ fixated on integrity, with influence equal part Windy and Motor city.
The new series set to hit the shelves across multiple formats in October neither seeks to encompass the genres fall out with full length albums packed from opening intro to closing credits with four to the flour club tracks nor hint at replacing the fundamentals of why emerging electronic DJ/ Producers deserve more than 12” EP and a remix to propel their sound.
“In a world of club singles and EPs, many artists don’t have the platform to fully explore their sound. 8-track gives the opportunity for artists I love and believe in to exhibit their production skills, create a mini masterpiece and take the listener on an all encompassing journey in to their musical mind. A lot can be done in 8 tracks! Cristoph is an artist I truly believe in, he’s been quietly working away, making absolute monsters in the studio over the past couple years and it felt only right for him to launch this new concept.” Hot Since 82
Factor in Knee Deep In Sound’s unrivalled and consistent quality of dance floor intensity and adventurous chorus led flow and you’ve got as wide an outlook of the album format as you can ask for.
Further details of the first 8-Track album by Cristoph, will be announced soon with pre-album release singles and remixes also.
