Montreal based producer Hissy Fit taps into summer’s inspiration as we are taken on a trip
that rides the fine line of bliss, and the subsequent melancholy attached to the end of
everyone’s favorite time of year. A seasoned producer, Hissy Fit is described as “crossing
the bridge between uk-style bass music, house and techno”, and has released on some of the
freshest, forward thinking labels including Skip & Swing, Party Guy, and Car Crash Set.
You may have heard his tunes on Rinse FM, Kiss FM, or read about him with media attention
from CBC Electronic , XLR8R, and Exclaim! magazine.
On remix duties, we have a heavy weight cast. The usual suspects from Aufect’s key roster
step up and deliver their take on the sounds of Hissy Fit. Bassmynt (Sounds of Sumo, Stacked)
drops a remix of the title track with focus on percussion heavy riddims, with clever vocal
edits, rending it gloomy with a darker vibe than the original. HxdB (Tectonic, Palms Out)
knocks “Buried” out of the park, slowing it down, taking his remix deeper while maintaining
the overall garage essence of the original. Last but not least we have the man who is currently
setting the music world on fire, San Francisco’s Reilly Steel (Senseless, Trouble & Bass, Hot N Heavy).
Reilly’s rework of Heat Wave takes us to the warehouse, leaning towards the soulful side of things with
excellent use of instruments rarely used in contemporary electronic music. We consider this one a treat.
