Hot Creations tracks are meant to be played at idyllic villas in Ibiza, or blasted out to sweaty underground dance parties. Denney’s forthcoming release “Low Frequency” definitely leans toward the latter. This straightforward party record is complete with crazy rave stabs, a rumbling bassline, and an energetic vocal for peak-time madness. Enjoy this full-stream premiere before the track drops on Monday, February 2.
Were you impulsive on this track, or did you have a sketch in mind before you started?
I just sat down and treated it as a blank canvas—as I do with all my tracks. I find the best way in the studio is to let it develop organically and not try and force anything. Luckily, this came together quite quickly and just seemed to gel. Sometimes this approach works, and sometimes it doesn’t; luckily, it did this time.
How does this production reflect your personality/ethos?
It’s a party record made specifically for the dancefloor, which is what I’m all about. It has rave stabs and acid sounds in it that are inspired from different parts of me growing up and listening to house music. It’s also massively inspired from the back-to-basics dancefloor in Leeds, which is what I grew up on and where I now hold my residency.
Have you played this one out in any of your sets? If so, what was the response?
Yes, I’ve been playing it in every set since I made it, and it has been getting one of the biggest reactions out of any of the records I play. That’s always the best way to establish if you’ve made a record that people are into.
What’s your favorite sound/synth/effect/etc. used here, and why?
My favorite sounds in this track are the acid licks. I’m a massive sucker for a 303 bassline, but with this track, I just teased little bits of acid in it, so they bounced off the main bassline. I think they work really well together.
If this song were a color, what color would it be?
It would be like a flashing white strobe light!
