We premiere new music from Belfast party starters Hotline as they debut on Homage New York with a 5-track split EP with Housecat alongside a strong remix from fellow Irish man Pagan. We feature ‘Ex’s’ a sun-kissed techno track that leans into vintage trance euphoria while also paying service to Belfast’s rave scene.
Hotline first caught ravers attention through their residency at at Shine, it’s here where they cut their teeth in Belfast’s dance music circuit. Since then, the duo has performed at numerous venues across the country, releasing a slew of self-released singles that have earned them cult status and acclaim from some of the most intriguing names in dance music.
On the twenty-fourth release for New York based label HOMAGE, the Irish duo have teamed up with frequent collaborator Housecat, a DJ & producer who also pulls influences from techno and trance with the adrenaline meter turned up to 100.
We premiere ‘Ex’s’ a sizzling big-room techno anthem that pulls inspiration from hazey trance & prog warehouse sounds. The pair lean into old-school rave euphoria while still keeping their feet firmly on the gas, delivering a punchy techno tool that fly’s high across the sun. Blissful trance-licked melodies play off ethereal strings and rolling bass grooves for a dangerously addictive rave-soaked anthem.
