Local Hero: Chromeo - Hot Mess (Slow It Down Moody Edit)

LOCAL HERO: Chromeo – Hot Mess (Slow It Down Moody Edit)
FIRST FEATURED: http://www.subcity.org/shows/synth/bc203/

As we wait patiently for the first full release from the Slow It Down guys (we’re told its impending), they’ve managed to keep us sweet through perhaps one of their finest edits to date. Taking Chromeo’s sex-dripping ‘Hot Mess’ and stretching it out with a thigh-caressing bassline, this has the power to seduce any dancefloor you drop it on. Slick, sophisticated and smooth, we can see this sticking about well into the summer…

Maintaining those summer vibes, here is something fresh that sprung into our lives but only two days ago. Produced by Weakhunt, one half of the bass-bending Thrust Club, ‘Rest’ is a glorious glimpse of lazy days under a scorching sun. Employing introspective chords along with an irresistible sax line, this will have you reclining to a whole new level.

We’re late – no point in trying to hide it. Glasgow based Soosh has been making waves for some time now, but it’s only since signing to Mixed Bizness that we finally caught on. Making ethereal, dream-inspired electronica which comes on like an acid-trip in the Emerald City, Soosh defines experimental excellence. Pick up a free download of ‘Take My Hand’ now.

Finally, moving in a completely different direction, we’ve recently become hooked on the reality-check rhyming of Scottish Hip Hop talent Zayn. Forgoing the quite unnecessary explicitness of some of his fledgling peers, Zayn has a captivating presence which dominates every track. On free download, ‘She’, expect a soul-bearing testament to an object of desire…
