Always at the top of their game, Hot Creations this time call upon Toronto’s Nathan Barato for the next release on the label. The unique and fresh sounding ‘Everytime I See You’ is a real groover with a low slung bassline creating deep swing and flow with the vocals from Room 303 taking it to the next level. Brazilian Volkoder is first to remix, picking up the pace for the dance floor he adds a new killer bassline, stripping down the vocal but holding onto the groove. Last up Drumcode favourite Nicole Moudaber brings her techno touch to the release with her remix making this a wholly satisfying package indeed.
A Toronto favourite, Nathan Barato has been a staple of the city’s underground scene for over 15 years. He began as a young pup, rolling with legends like Peter & Tyrone, playing at clubs such as Industry, Mad Bar and System Soundbar. His talent eventually progressed him into residencies at The Guvernment, Stereo Nightclub, and Footwork, as well as his own night, “Weird Science” at the long-standing and legendary Comfort Zone. His releases can be found on the likes of Rekids, Cajual, Moda Black, Saved Records and his own Roots & Wings.
Producer since the age of 16 years old, Volkoder has produced music for major labels such as Kittball, Material, Snatch! Records, Street King among many others. His music has been championed by Jamie Jones and Lee Foss and they are happy to have him onboard the label.
Nigerian-born Lebanese star Nicole Moudaber is a force to be reckoned with who climbed the ranks with the likes of Carl Cox as a mentor. Last year she released her debut album on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode which was Number 1 for a month on the Beatport techno, tech house and deep house lists. Touring all over the world last year she played for the likes of Marco Carola’s Music On and played the final set at Space closing party.
