Rupert Taylor who spent his youth in various bands, decided to finally decided to hang up his guitar and mic and began producing electronic music under the DJ name XXXY. His passion was fueled by his love at the time of drum and bass and techno.




I saw Jamie Jones for the first time at Sound in LA last weekend. His deep house tunes carried us through a very fun night, all the way to the end until the club closed at 4 AM (amazing considering everything closes at 2 AM here :/).

I looked him up, and discovered Hot Creations, which is the label (and party crew) helmed by Jones and Lee Foss. Hot Creations took 3 of the 7 spots on Pete Tong’s Essential New Tunes 2012, including ‘Benediction’, which made it into the UK Top 40.

If you’re anywhere near London on April 13 2013, a host of Hot Creations sanctioned artists will be at the legendary Brixton Academy, for a late night spectacular. Canadian pair Art Department have been confirmed for the date, and will be bringing their seasoned brand of tech house and electro. Hot Natured – the union of Jones, Lee Foss, Luca C and Ali Love – will be debuting their live show. Foss will DJ, as will Richy Ahmed, Infinity Ink and PBR Streetgang.
