Once in awhile, something comes along that’s so fresh, that it leaves me with my head cocked to the side and my eyes wide open, staring at my monitor, as I allow the music to flow through the very center of my being. That’s exactly what happened when I encountered Get Hot earlier today, a duo made up of producers FTSE and Jakwob. Fight is their second single, and together, the two have crafted a sound they call “synth-hardcore”. Think electronica meets post-hardcore rock music to get an idea of what these fellas sound like together. It’s unique and rip roaring energetic, a bit like Death From Above 1979 meets Crystal Castles, with a touch of death metal and a pinch of Fall Out Boy. It’s some crazy stuff, and I know a few friends who would fall head over heels for this stuff. Coincidentally, Get Hot has just signed to Last Gang Records (who also have Crystal Castles and DFA 1979 on their roster) in North America. An album will be coming along in 2015, and it should be one of next year’s more interesting, exciting releases. Visit first single Drugs below. I’ll be watching as the buzz rises on this duo.
