- Dreams to Reality
Hot Creations | 29.11.2019
Fast rising Manchester talent Joseph Edmund presents the scintillating Dreams to Reality, his debut release on Hot Creations following his well-received The Pressure EP on sister label Hottrax.
“From day one it’s been my biggest goal to release on Hot Creations, it’s my favourite label and the one I’ve admired from the start, so naming the EP Dreams to Reality was a must! When making Norrr I wanted to create a lot of atmosphere on the break with the vocals, then drop it clean to get a huge reaction. Then with Fuego, it was all about making a funky 303 groove. Both feature my own sampled vocal hits just to make it that bit more personal.” Joseph Edmund
Norrr kicks off with a chunky, addictive house beat, as playful vocals are injected before the introduction of a whirring bassline. The foot is then taken off the gas as the track breathes, before being hurled back into a peak time cut. On Fuego, zippy electronics combine with sirens, whistles and vocal loops, in a piece that is both charming and devious when these elements become tightly fused.
Joseph Edmund is an underground house and techno DJ/Producer from the musical city of Manchester. After starting to DJ at the age of 19, he began playing at Manchester’s best venues including Gorilla and Sankeys. Quickly turning his hand to production, he became immersed in the studio, spending countless hours learning his craft and developing his sound. His early releases have already been supported by Steve Lawler, Solardo, Patrick Topping, Mark Jenkyns, Nathan Borato, Jey Kurmis and Latmun. The pinnacle came when his music reached the attention of Hot Creations boss Jamie Jones, who swiftly signed a three track EP to his Hottrax label. Joseph has also received regular support on BBC Radio 1 from Monki and Danny Howard.
