Hot Since 82’s trajectory has been one of the biggest success stories in the recent history of dance music. As a DJ and producer, Daley’s stripes were hard earned, having spent many years honing his craft before launching his Hot Since 82 project at the age of 29. Sometimes house, sometimes techno, Daley’s music focuses heavily on mind-locking grooves and unmistakable ambiences, that seem almost omnipresent when you’re stood in the middle of Enter, DC10 or any other dance-floor that he’s been in control of. There a few accolades HS82 has yet to receive; three Essential Mixes, three Essential New Tune’s, Beatport #1, curating the debut Little Black Book, Mixmag cover star, sell-out tours across the world, and the launch of his own Knee Deep In Sound imprint. It’s been a whirlwind few years since his debut on Moda Black back in 2012 (the second ever release on the label), and it shows no sign of stopping. As Hot Since 82 shifts into the upper echelons on global house music, that same raw, unflinching, intrinsic passion continues to drive him into exciting new places - and long may it continue.
