Another belatedly discovery of 2011 but why didn't anyone tell me about the Margaret Dygas self-titled on Perlon? Very much a dry, skeletal affair, typical of the label I guess - I'm not the biggest expert but on at least a superficial level it's very much like Villalobos' "Alcachofa" texturally - but there's enough darkness to remind me of Chloe while moments such as the live drums on this remind me of Four Tet:

I don't want to use the m-word but there's a reason that whole thing took off and stuff like this makes me kinda miss it.

i heard about that dygas record somewhere... thought it was ilx? maybe not tho

sounds pretty hot creations-y but i guess it's on wolf + lamb

I like the danny daze track but can't really deal with the hot creations thing

Cashmere Combabe, Tuesday, 24 January 2012 11:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

that cottam track from way upthread is amazing, it's my sax automatic kneejerk love kicking in. the b-side "twang" is fantastic too

what is the hot creations thing? i usually don't know what people mean when they say this. i believe there is a wolf + lamb thing that i also don't get

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 24 January 2012 18:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

hot creations thing = lee foss "u got me", miguel campbell "something special", danny daze "your everything", hot natured "forward motion", clockwork "it's you again", etc.

it's not too crazily different than the wolf + lamb thing, but with (usually) more prominent vocals/pop hooks. it's lee foss and jamie jones' label idk

psychgawsple, Tuesday, 24 January 2012 19:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

no, i mean, i get that its a label with songs, i like a lot of them, but the way people talk about it leads me to think that it is something extra-musical which they don't like about hot creations

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 24 January 2012 19:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't get it either. Maybe it sounds better at a rooftop party in LA or poolside in Miami? The plodding house beats, grating vocals and corny R&B samples. All I know is to AVOID Hot Creations/Hot Natured nights in London LIKE THE PLAGUE. Topless, sweaty 17 yr olds in sunglasses pushing on the dance floor.. no thanks.

i love it because it sounds exactly like a rooftop party in LA or poolside in miami

tinie tempurah (lex pretend), Tuesday, 24 January 2012 19:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

ah, okay, well, i live in FL so i'm more inclined to associate poolside miami with the hot creations sound than sweaty 17yo londoners

this sounded awesome until it dawned on me that you were probably talking about guys

it makes me want to go to more hot creations nights in london, certainly

I just got the first Hinge Finger from Madteo: http://www.discogs.com/Madteo-Bugler-Gold-Pt1/release/3269305 it's a well nice slab of odd ball house.

Looking forward to this too.

jimitheexploder, Tuesday, 24 January 2012 19:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

i would absolutely go to a hot creations night in london for reasons that have only partly to do with shirtless guys

donna rouge, Tuesday, 24 January 2012 19:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

My experience with sweaty 17y/o Londoners has been more tedious and gross than anything else. Makes sense, since Hot Creations, Wolf and Lamb, et al make tedious and awful music that's by and large to be avoided like the plague, shirtless guys or no.

But that's just me.

just....don't. i love all the music but seriously when people talk negatively about the 'hot creations thing' this is probably what they are talking about. so much aggro.

oh and dance music snobbery i guess

the emancipation of me-me (tpp), Tuesday, 24 January 2012 20:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

the lary crowds combined with the shit 'TBC' venues, promoters knowingly overselling said shit venues two, three times over capacity and getting old i imagine means in 2012 i will be choosing my london nights out p selectively

has anyone heard some of the wolf + lamb mixes where they get on the mic? in theory i'm all for a bit of innovation in the dj box but it is incredibly cringey, sounds like a bad teen disco in suburban dublin when he's roaring "when the beat drops, i wanna see how low y'all can go!!" - albeit with jesse pinkman accents.

Well I didn't mean to open a can of worms about this re:'the hot creations thing' - I should have said sound rather than thing, wasn't really referring to anything else. I find their sound a bit cold is all!

I just bought a marcus mixx record! although it wasn't that one

i haven't heard the mixes where they talk over it, when i saw soul clap there was no mic action and it was a pretty chill crowd

this hot creations/crosstown rebels sound was pretty refreshing when it first came out. "l word", "forward motion", "without you" are aces. but then they keep retreading the formula to the point that it became boring and predictable. I can't stand Maceo Plex.

dan138zig (Durrr Durrr Durrrrrr), Wednesday, 25 January 2012 01:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

I can't wait for the inevitable curation of Hot Creations because it will be one disc of great post-minimal vocal house and it will be all I need.

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 25 January 2012 01:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

from this scene I mean, not by itself alone.

im very tempted to start a separate s/d thread but i really really love everything ive heard on the life + death label partic the pillowtalk ep from late last year:

anyone have suggestions/thoughts??

# (Lamp), Wednesday, 25 January 2012 04:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

i like both pillowtalk eps, probably like the one on w+l even more than that ^ one tho. what else is on that label?

i think what hot creations is doing has a lot more in common with azari & iii style vocal house revivalism than anything else, and i love it - even tho yes it can be somewhat formulaic

psychgawsple, Wednesday, 25 January 2012 05:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

theres a dOP 12" 'after party' that i really vibe and a bunch of remixes by ppl that i vaguely recognize. they arent updating their website which is p lol but they only have four 'official' releases

listeners like who? what's a listener like me? might want to update your ilm filofax.

also love this, it's like "you've fallen completely into their trap"...OR maybe there's no problem with speaking on the mic, they just say really stupid cringey shit.

honestly i only ever heard them do it on their BiS broadcast, where they openly stated "people keep calling in asking for us to stop talking... so we're gonna talk more!"

worst one is actually soul clap

http://soundcloud.com/r_co/soul-clap-la-boum-de-luxe-22-1

39.30...it's just fucking awful. i had no prob with the BIS set.

doesn't help that the song is dire too.

x-post he actually does sound like jesse pinkman here imo.

The original mix of "Soft" is a good pop song. But that Life & Death remix sounds just like every other Tale of Us remix.

dan138zig (Durrr Durrr Durrrrrr), Thursday, 26 January 2012 00:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

dunno what year these two tracks are from but really like both, no idea what they are tho

sisqó inferno (Lamp), Thursday, 26 January 2012 00:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

well too much of a good thing is not good, bro. I mean, I enjoy all of tale of us previous remixes but when I heard this track, I thought, oh not this bass sound again.

dan138zig (Durrr Durrr Durrrrrr), Thursday, 26 January 2012 00:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

I've been trying to find out some ID's from this mix. Maybe someone could help me here? This is one of my favorite mixes in 2011.

http://mnmlssg.blogspot.com/2011/08/ssg-special-john-osborn-panorama-bar.html

The tracks that need ID-ing:
@ 06:00
@ 19:00
@ 25:00
@ 30:00
@ 32:00 (wow!)
@ 36:00
@ 43:00
@ 48:00
@ 89:00

whoa that's a lot.

yea... was going to say, i dig most of what i've heard from tale of us. i get the impression that i value aesthetic consistency more than other ppl itt based on this and other comments re: hot creations

didn't really pay this one much attention until the ra eoy poll but it's excellent (also turns out it's on life and death. i will now pay attention to this label)

psychgawsple, Thursday, 26 January 2012 03:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

^ benefits from using a similar vocal style to art department but not falling prey to using the same damn cadence over and over again like that dude tends to do
