Hot Since 82 has proven himself a top curator on the underground tip as well as Knee Deep in Sound's label master since 2011. But these days, it takes more than a single release or coveted spot on a remix pack to become a household name.
Enter '8-track', HS82's brand new album series that will showcase the musical scope of his favorite rising talents through a selection of eight varying productions. The Leeds-based DJ explained that new fans need to understand an artist's tastes and style on a deeper level with "an all encompassing journey into their musical mind".
The inaugural installment of '8-track' will come from Cristoph, a seasoned producer from Newcastle who has recently released on Adam Beyer's sub-label, Truesoul and of course, Knee Deep in Sound.
Listen to the first track from Cristoph's '8-track' series below. Currently, there are no official release dates for the rest of the album.
