H.O.S.H. has long been a stalwart member of the Diynamic label crew, but recently he has been the standout member thanks to his Forever Young EP series. And in light of the fact that Solomun has spent the past summer concocting the likes of ‘Friends’, that’s not a statement we may lightly. Anyway, it has been H.O.S.H’s concept series of 10’’s (whereby he returns to his roots and rediscovers his childhood fastasies) that have really captured both our hearts and minds of late. Oh…and did we mention that they’re fine dance floor fodder too?!
The EP features two tracks, the first of which is ‘’Captain’’, a steely tech house number that builds slowly but surely until a loud, brightly coloured synth pattern envelops the whole tune and elevates us into the stars. It’s trance-eque and uplifting and will no doubt go down a storm at one of his many Ibiza residencies this summer; particularly on his infamous boat parties. On the flip side is Writer, which is a deeper bit of more propulsive house that aims to make you move. Woody percussion and more subtle and uplifting chords colour the thing and in doing so closes out this great series in some style. Top notch work from one of Diynamic’s most consistent – and rightly celebrated – performers.
