Second release on Jamie Jones & Lee Foss’s Hot Creations label is the first release by hot new talent Robert James. A burgeoning producer, way ahead of his game who will soon be familiar for his insanely infectious music, not least for ‘Sleep Moods’ his debut EP.
‘Sleep Moods’ is the type of record that you never want to end. Drilling into the mind with rattling bells, rolling bass and echoed calls of ‘go deep… all night… no sleep’. This is an unstoppable dancefloor gem, catching your attention from first listen and leaving you wanting more. As ‘Sleep Moods’ breaks into its groove through haunting sirens and dark rave stabs that keep the energy levels stoked up, it leaves no doubt that Robert James is an original and skilled new artist.
On the flip ‘Connected’ is another explosive original, crackling with kickdrums and sharpened with supernatural synth stabs. In a similar vein to the sound of Jamie Jones, the Hot Creations label creator, you can see where these two producers have found common ground.
Completing the package, Parisien house afficionado Dyed Soundorom takes on a remix of title track, ‘Sleep Moods’. Producing a stripped back dubby version that works at any point of the night, a skill that Dyed has become renowned for. Dyed has been part of the Freak n’Chic crew for many years and has also released on Crosstown Digital Rebels, Spectral, murmur and Supplement Facts.
