Hot Since 82 & Habischman – Leave Me (Dubfire Playa Mix)
Dubfire has done some epic techno tunes but he’s also done some sprawling formless ones. I’ve therefore rather lost faith in his remixes. But this one, for Hot Since 82 & Habischman, restores the faith. It’s a remix he asked to do and that comes across. This is no contract filler. Inevitably, it’s a sprawling epic – but it has form and shape. You only get four minutes in this clip but it has a wonderful sense of space and scale. Very Carl Craig.

Dubfire remixing Hot Since 82 & Habischman!
Blurb: Moda Black is in the midst of its most prolific years to date, having just released the second edition of Little Black Book, this time curated by Groove Armada, as well as propelling a raft of new talent via EP’s from Theo Kottis, Walker & Royce, Sidney Charles and label owners Jaymo & Andy George. The label also hosted their inaugural Lost Village in May, which prompted widespread acclaim from artists and revellers alike. Continuing this momentum, Moda Black have just released a brand new Dubfire rework of Hot Since 82 & Habischman’s Leave Me.
They say the best things grow organically. So when Dubfire asked for the remix parts for Leave Me, following Lee Burridge’s Burning Man set, there was a feeling that something special was afoot – a remix motivated purely by a passion for the original. A few months later a brooding, stripped down techno rework was delivered, and has since been causing all manner of commotion for Dubfire and HS82 respectively. Now available for the first time publicly, this special remix is now available on a limited edition coloured vinyl.
On the flipside, Flying Circus founders Audiofly dismantle Hot Since 82’s ‘Sundown’, reworking it into a ten-minute spaced out but provocative journey that utilises many of the duos signature moves.
Hot Since 82’s ‘Leave Me / Sundown (Remixes)’ is out on limited edition coloured 12” on 21st August.
