Sought-after tech house artist Hot Since 82 has announced a new album series, 8-Track, through his imprint Knee Deep in Sound. The album series will aim to serve as a platform for producers to present the depth and breadth of their artistic vision.
The series will navigate the middle ground between the once-common full-length album through which artists could showcase their artistry, and the remix and EP-dominated noise floor that emerging artists must rise above to garner individual recognition. It will offer a different approach to acclimating listeners to an artist’s body of work, by taking “the listener on an all encompassing journey in to their musical mind.”
Hot Since 82 went on to describe the project in greater depth:
“In a world of club singles and EPs, many artists don’t have the platform to fully explore their sound. 8-track gives the opportunity for artists I love and believe in to exhibit their production skills, create a mini masterpiece and take the listener on an all encompassing journey in to their musical mind. A lot can be done in 8 tracks! Cristoph is an artist I truly believe in, he’s been quietly working away, making absolute monsters in the studio over the past couple years and it felt only right for him to launch this new concept.”
The first artist to be featured on 8-Track is Christoph. Check out the first track, “Perplexity,” and head here to download the track and register for priority access to the series.
