Though their grand arrival to the US may have been stunted this summer when their NYC debut was cancelled in early July, Hot Natured is no doubt continuing to spread their sun-soaked, infectious sound around the world. WIth stunning success from the first three singles, "Benediction", "Reverse Skydiving" and the most recent, "Isis (Magic Carpet Ride)", Hot Natured is now just about ready to unleash their debut album, Different Sides Of The Sun.
Hot Natured, the supergroup brainchild of Hot Creations heads and world-class DJs Jamie Jones and Lee Foss, is a house music band (that's right, band) known for their penchant for their Balearic and disco-infused soulful take on house and techno music, imagined for popular consumption. The band, which also includes Luca C and Ali Love, has often incorporated a traditional pop music style with strong vocals (Kenny Glasgow of Art Department, Anabel Englund are just two of the names on the list) and a verse-chorus-verse structure as opposed to the common, EDM-associated formula of build-drop-breakdown-build-drop. Though they are first pegged as a house music band (and obviously even in this post), Get a taste of their sound with this brilliant mini-mix in advance of their debut album Different Sides Of The Sun - set to drop next Tuesday, September 2nd via Pete Tong's FFRR.
