Hot Creations is back at it with those summer grooves that keep us bouncing. After a huge summer last year, the label spearheaded by Jamie Jones and Lee Foss is out to prove that 2012 will be just as fiery. This time they’ve landed a delicious collaboration EP from Brazilian groups Digitaria (pictured) and Funky Fat. The Masochist EP is a happy mix of nu disco, deep house, and electropop; imagine if CSS and New Order made love on a dancefloor surrounded by palm trees. Tropical vibes, crisp vocals, and lush chords unite to keep this release sounding perfect both in the club and in your headphones.
The fun kicks off with the synth-pop sounds of Masochist, funky electro-bass carrying breathy vocals through a colorful aural spectrum. Things get a bit dirtier with Digitaria’s dreamy remix of their own Paradise. Trancey vocals drop into a vicious garage-style bassline meant to make the floor rattle. Crazy Life veers toward disco as strings and sparkles highlight the blissful voice of Daniela Caldellas. The Masochist EP also contains the equally fantastic You Bring Me Down. Funky Fat and Digitaria may not be household names yet, but with quality like this, their stars are sure to rise.
