Hotmood – Good Old Days [De La Groove]

Hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico, Hotmood (soundcloud) has been quietly constructing a dedicated fandom after successful inter-continental tours and timeless, boogie-inspired club cuts released to the world via imprints Whiskey Disco, Tugboat Edits, and his own label, Hotmood Records. We’re thrilled to be premiering his new track, “Good Old Days” which will appear on De La Groove’s Blazing Waves Summer compilation.

To put it simply, this track is six minutes of pure sunshine. Hotmood lays a solid rhythmic foundation in the opening bars, gracing listeners with the punchy, animated kicks, snares, and hi-hats for which his disco edits have become known. Rounding out the ensemble, a guitar lick, slap bass, and electric piano tangle themselves into a bright, feel-good melody accented with playful drum fills and the occasional brass punctuation. Though the intermittent vocal sample calls us to reminisce about, “the good old days,” I imagine countless situations, perhaps sitting poolside with a margarita in hand, when this track will actively construct those days in the right here, right now. A perfect tune for the first month of Summer, be sure to keep Hotmood on your short list of disco heavy-hitters.
