If you’re looking to delve into some cutting-edge deep house from one of the best in the game, look no further than Recovery. Over the weekend, British house phenom Hot Since 82, aka Daley Padley dropped his first full length studio album, featuring a slate of high-profile collaborators like Rudimental, Jamie Jones, and Boy George.
On the album, Padley demonstrates his refined ability to create house tunes that are minimal yet chic, expertly crafting progressions that build energy and seamlessly drop into heavy grooves. He’s also worked in beautiful and entrancing vocals on many of the tracks; standing out are the first and final tracks featuring vocals from Temple.
The album exudes intimate, late night vibes between tracks that range from modern sounding deep house to those that call back to earlier days of disco and club music, like “Naboo” and “Barefoot.” The expansive and dark aura of the album are exemplified on tracks like “Black and White” and “Sinnerman,” an emotionally charged collaboration with English producer and musician Ed Graves.
The album is out now via Padley’s own record label, Knee Deep In Sound. He’s also performed a DJ set of the tracks on the album from a hot air balloon. Check it out in the stream below. Enjoy!
