Back with yet another killer release and proving why it is impossible to pigeonhole this unstoppable label, Hot Creations welcome you into the utterly mesmerizing world of Freaks with their next huge hit ‘Black Shoes White Socks.’ This epic single release features impressive remixes from Chicago legend Cajmere and Hot Creation’s new recruit wAFF.
The ever evolving and never predictable music venture that is Freaks first materialized as the brainchild of house heroes Luke Solomon and Justin Harris. Having remixed for artists such as Pulp, Damon Albarn and Kasabian and receiving support from a wide selection of artists including Derrick Carter, Damian Lazarus, The Chemical Brothers, Ewan Pearson and Laurent Garnier, there is no doubt that Freaks are a welcomed addition to the Hot Creation’s camp. Not to mention they had a top 10 hit in the UK charts in 2007 with ‘The Creeps’..
Wonderfully enchanting ‘Black Shoes White Socks’ oozes the air of a timeless classic, beautifully mystifying with intoxicating vocals by 012 aka DIZ and off-kilter Arabian flutes, it showcases immaculate production while perfectly grasping the sound of the new era, edged with popular appeal and disco flare.
Up first on remix duty, number one professional Curtis Jones aka Cajmere delivers a dance floor bomb like only he can. This deep groover is pumped with a powerful bass and shoulder shifting clap while an effective play on the vocal is used to maximum effect. Over on the B–side and fresh from his debut EP on the label ‘Rainbows’, wAFF adds a welcoming dose of techno. This heavy-duty remix is certainly one for peak time, with added vocals submerged in deep, driving energy, this rising star is one to keep a close eye on.
