On The Run – NGHTMRE (feat. PASSEPORT)

NGHTMRE has been one of my favorite producers the last few years. He brings a fresh sound into the bass scene and keeps proving time and time again his skills as a producer are only getting better with each release. If you have the chance to see him get your butt on the dance floor and get ready to bust loose!

On The Run throws a lot at you and it all fits so well together. Starts with some amazing vocals from PASSEPORT. A heavy guitar riff slams into a big drop that only escalates into an eruption of bass! Bass face fully engaged here! Enjoy this one bass heads.

Escape – Jamie Berry feat. Jemio

This is so off-brand for Jamie Berry. In true Jamie fashion tho, it’s still phenomenal. Here in our HKFL family each author has one or two artists who is their personal “dibs” all the time new track posts. Jamie is my only permanent request. This dudes sounds flood every inch of my soul with life. His new EP is out in December and I don’t know if I have ever been more excited to hear all that stupid christmas trash in the grocery stores- because that means not only snow but the Frenzy EP are on route. Anywho, let this track fill you with… your personal favorite filling (from the inside out) — whatever that may be. 😉

Secret Place- CloZee (Megan Hamilton Remix)

This track is not a new face to the blog, but the producer/vocalist behind this sexy, smooth track is a new addition to the highkicksfacelicks family. Megan Hamilton is one bad ass chick. Although born and raised in Minneapolis, she has found herself bringing a European influence to funk in the USA, scoring herself a debut on Bristol’s Ghetto Funk label.

Megan’s voice brings so much depth and emotion to this track, she had me hooked from the first word. If you haven’t already noticed, I’m all about the female vocals, so when I came across this gem I had no choice but to turn the speakers up loud and rock the fuck out. Her raw, raspy voice along with the inviting instrumental breakdown and beloved head bobbing baseline had me playing this song on repeat.

After several releases this year with Buygore, Ghetto Funk, Audiophile, and more, Hamilton is branching out, exploring new genres and absolutely  killin’ it! If you like variety within an artist, Hamilton is your girl. She serves up a large spread from Ghetto Funk to Future Bass, Trip Hop, Glitch Hop, Electronic Hip Hop and everything in-between. So be my guest, go to her Soundcloud page, check out her menu and eat up!

Peace and Love

Kooky Music EP – Jamie Jones

Attention all House Heads! I’m talking to those who wait through the 2 minute intros, get off on subtle basslines, chase the high hats, and groove to devious layers. House music for your experienced ear.

Ok so we have Hot Creations, a record label from London introduced to me years ago by a one of my favouirte music pals in this world. Co-founded by Jamie Jones and Lee Foss in 2010. House music is their baby. From managing sister labels HOTTRAX and Emerald City to Paradise in Ibiza these guys know Club Culture, they know how to make your dancing soul move.

Kooky Music is cool. Katy B’s vocals are featured on the opening track, Sound of Music. She’s no stranger to sharing her musical expression within the EDM scene. Her voice blends with a low, cruisey drop, and delicate claps. Kooky Chords is dancey. The first build up dropping in with, yep you guessed it, Kooky Chords. Positive Pressure is a strut through an aliens liar. Ending with Parallel Universe this track winds it all down with a tiny menace in the background.

This EP is Hot Creations 100th release. Cheers to the house this label produces.
