About this item
Kai Rodriguez makes his debut outing on Hot Creations, delivering a two-track EP entitled: "The Thrill".
With his late-2021 Hottrax debut "Underground", DJ / producer Kai Rodriguez gave the house scene a first glimpse of what’s to come with the 25-year-old UK talent’s breakthrough release remaining in heavy rotation for head honcho Jamie Jones across the Ibiza season and beyond. Having since featured on bubbling US imprint Revival New York, he steps things up a level as he reveals his first material of 2023 and his Hot Creations debut with "The Thrill".
Lead track "The Thrill" harnesses an iconic Empire of The Sun vocal known across the globe but switches things up, contrasting the vibrant tones with murky low-ends and metallic percussion for a no-nonsense cut made for the main rooms of Ibiza and beyond.
Meanwhile "Sum" Bout’ takes a drum-driven path as skippy hats and warped snippets ebb and flow amongst the mix for more peak time material featuring that quintessential bass wobble we know and love from the Hot Creations roster. It might be a few weeks till we're jumping on the Easyjets to holiday house destinations across Europe but this offering is certain to get us in our speedos dancing around the living room with a homemade mojito.
Matt says: A naughty-but-nice remix of Empire Of The Sun which takes it straight to the terraces of Ibiza. Gotta say Hot Creations are in a bit of a purple patch at the moment. Tech house never dies!
