Hot Creations continues its 2021 release schedule this February with a four-track EP
from Josh Hvaal. Getting Better sees the UK talent return to the label, fresh from
releasing his maiden EP, The Sound, on the imprint in March last year.
Basic leads the charge and takes no prisoners as it goes, pairing rapid kick-hat combos
against layered vocal tones to create Josh’s signature late-night sound. Getting Better
comes next, blending a retro acid vibe with an up-tempo lead bassline before the near six-
minute Oi takes the form of a heavyweight techno number. Tiptoe brings things to an
emotive close, showcasing Josh’s eclectic style with drawn-out chords and percussion-
Josh Hvaal has become a household name in the contemporary house sphere in recent
times. It was in March that the young UK-native achieved a remarkable feat: releasing his
debut EP on Hot Creations. Such an achievement didn’t go unnoticed, with industry
heavyweights soon playing his music in the form of Joseph Capriati, Andrea Oliva and
many more. Releases have since followed on Yousef’s Circus Recordings, Malgado’s
Distortion and Hot Creations’ offshoot Hottrax, standing him in good stead for another
successful year in 2021.
