Lee Foss

Hot on the circuit right now, Chicago Born Lee Foss, a now London and Los Angeles based DJ & one half of duo label ‘Hot Natured’ with Jamie Jones, is making a big name for himself solo in his soulful, hazy beats; releasing hits on labels such as NO 19, Culprit and Wolf + Lamb.

Foss & his fellow collective family of producers are rapidly mellowing this slightly more ambient and slower take on the future of this minimalist approach and are ‘currently re-writing the rule book of how to make evocative and emotive house music’. From playing Fabric in London to DC10 in Ibiza, Foss is quickly becoming a well recognised face within the nu-school house and Minimal Techno scene.

Said to be inspired from 80’s electro to 90’s hip hop; hailing from his all- American Chicago roots, his break through was ‘Grinding’ on Wolf + Lamb which catapulted him into the storm of lighter sounds. Other hit releases include The Edge EP’ ‘Equilibrium’, and ‘U Got Me’, which has a catchy and playful vocal which I’ve had on constant repeat since the summer months. Focusing on an up & coming album with Jamie Jones for Hot Natured, along with his own projects, Foss is also aiming to tour globally in 2012 as fully formed live act, playing those lighter beats to our little ears.

There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
