This month issue of Mixmag features a cd mixed by Hot Since 82, featuring two tracks from Joal, I See Why And Looking Down!
The Little Black Book album was only the beginning. From Cozzy D and Eric Volta to KiNK and Outstrip, Daley Padley, aka Hot Since 82, enters the house on his first-ever Mixmag cover CD. And what a mix it is! Veering from soul-flecked tech to masterful deep, Daley knows exactly what he’s doing. If you loved his mix of ‘Bigger Than Prince’, prepare to jump around like the purple one all over again.

2º Santé & Frank Lorber ‘All About’
“Love Santé and love this collab with Frank. I always hammer this. Total roller”
3º Joal ‘I See Why’
“I don’t know too much about Joal except that he’s a main player in Portugal and throws down some serious tracks. Love this”
4º Philip Bader ‘More’
“Bader is on fire at the moment and so is Viva. Organ jam!”
5º J. Diesel ‘Outside In A Box’ (Olivier Giacomotto remix)

“Moody and deep”
7º Martin Buttrich & Mousse T ‘Smack Back’

8 ºHot Since 82 ‘Don’t Touch The Alarm’
“My new single out soon on my new label, Knee Deep In Sound. I’m really happy with it. There’s a heavy as hell Booka Shade remix to go with it, too”

“Another Joal record that l couldn’t leave. One of my favourites from the last twelve months. Total jam”
