Adored by Drop The Lime (who opened his FACT mix with it) and Mary Anne Hobbs amongst others, Hot City’s ‘Yeah’ on Highpoint Lowlife was one of the best breakthrough singles we’d heard in ages.
The mystery producer’s contribution to our podcast series, FACT Mix 38, is one we’ve been sitting on for a little while now, and caning the whole time. Here’s our new talent profile on him from a while back: “I guess my earliest memory of rave would be hearing The Prodigy’s ‘Charley’ on the ITV chart show,” says the anonymous, twenty-something producer behind Hot City. “Then my sister used to play garage all the time when I was growing up, and it just sunk in. From that I discovered Todd Edwards, who blew my mind.”
His FACT mix takes in UK Garage from Rhythm Master, Hackney Soldiers and more, and is simply a belter.
