Barnsley-born DJ and producer Hot Since 82 has marked the 100th release on his Knee Deep In Sound imprint with the release of new single ‘Make Up’.
A deep and dark release that immediately grabs the listener’s attention with an imposing kick drum, ‘Make Up‘ is a seven-and-a-half minute journey that combines thumping techno with a melodic breakdown and seductive vocal samples.
“I love having Knee Deep In Sound as a vehicle to sign music that excites me and to also that it allows me to be in control of my own output,” Hot Since 82 enthuses. “To reach 100 releases is a real milestone and we’re indebted to all the brilliant artists whom we’ve worked with over the past 6 years. Here’s to the next 100!”
In operation since 2014, Knee Deep In Sound has overseen a slew of lauded releases from artists such as Richy Ahmed, Andrea Oliva, Martin Buttrich, Steve Bug, William Djoko, Booka Shade, Mark Broom and many more. It has also released two massively successful albums, both titled 8-track, from Christoph in 2016 and Hot Since 82 in 2019. Collectively they have amassed over 20 million streams.
The label has also hosted a number of showcases across the world, from Printworks London and the legendary Warehouse Project in Manchester to as far afield as New York, Miami, and Buenos Aires. With a similarly strong aesthetic – the label’s artwork pairs brightly colored smoke with natural backdrops – Knee Deep In Sound is one of the most recognizable electronic imprints around.
Regarded as one of the best producers in the game, ‘Make Up‘ is a fitting 100th release for Knee Deep In Sound from label head Hot Since 82.
