Hi 2 Hat


Read the Hi 2 Hat Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hi 2 Hat started in 2013. Big fan of the Uk House sound and Todd Terry productions.
I have released 4 EPs, 3 Remixes, and couple of free tracks till now. First Ep was on Maison Records (Ian Bland's imprint, aka "Dream Frequency" 90's Uk Breakbeat Rave Legend Band) with 3 Deep House tracks on the "Home Run EP", supported by Dj Caspa (Not the Dubstep guy, the Big House lover mate). Then I made a remix for Tom Bull & Stefan Smooth, during the same year. Then I released as Free Download on Soundcloud "Lovin Yeah", which has got a massive success 130K Plays with the support of the blog The Sound You Need". Then, 4 years after, back in studio to produce a new EP on Bunkaball (Don Rimini's imprint) called "Sparring partner" (supported on the Traxsource top 10 of my mentor Todd Terry) and a remix for Batenko on Audio Rehab. Then February, New EP "Playground" on the mexican dope label Hustler Trax and a remix for Marvy on bunkaball… And now the brand new "Steeplechase" is out, my second EP on Bunkaball Records.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


There is a lot of things to recognize my music. The Vocal Cut "Hi" Eminem's sample is included on each production, remixes, and originals. Did you listen to it? And the other trademark of Hi 2 Hat, is the sports name of each EP. "Home Run", "Sparring Partner", "Playground", "Steeplechase", cause I like sports. The first EP was more Deep House with Female vocal samples. The following one "Sparring partner" was more House with a pinch of Tech-house, The 3rd on Hustler Trax was more Power House as dutchies said, with hard kick and raw hihat. Then the new one "Steeplechase" on bunkaball is more classic house and uk house genre, added to a track more Detroit house.


What´s new right now?
