Hot Natured, the UK-based dream team of Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Ali Love, and Luca C, have assembled to provide a consummate collection of House music, Different Sides of The Sun, issued on Pete Tong's legendary FFRR label in conjunction with the ascendant Big Beat Records September 3rd.
The album is a slice of nuanced four-on-the-floor compositions conceived around central themes of mythology, the supernatural, the cosmic, and the inevitable passing of time. Recorded in London, Ibiza and Los Angeles, touches of appropriately nocturnal synths adorn the minimal, percussive arrangements, and these consistencies root Different Sides of The Sun in house music.
Ali Love's lead vocals supported by a neatly curated roster of vocalists including Kenny Glasgow of Art Department, S.Y.F. of Azari & III, Róisín Murphy, Anabel Englund and even the legendary Egyptian Lover on album stand out 'Isis', while the presence of live instrumentation distinguishes Hot Natured as a band doing something truly remarkable. Each track is composed around a locked rhythm that entrances and morphs predictably and delightfully, elevating mood as the four talents nudge the groove. Audiences at some of the world's most notable festivals, including Glastonbury, Sonar, T In the Park, and the Isle of Wight's Bestival, have experienced this magic already, whilst the band made their live debut with two sold out shows at London's iconic 5000 capacity Brixton Academy.
