Today’s Untz: Brooklyn In The House / Lee Foss
Lee Foss is the Hot Creations label owner. He was born and raised in Chicago, the birthplace of house, so it’s shouldn’t surprise anyone on how he started on this path.
While growing up in Chicago he was a product of the raves of the late 90’s, which sparked his interest in house and disco. It was not until a visit to Ibiza back in 2001, that changed his whole approach to music that helped steer his musical destiny for the next decade.
It was in Ibiza that summer that he first became friends with Jamie Jones, who I’ll be seeing in Croatia at Dimensions Festival. It was that visit that led to their highly acclaimed Hot Natured partnership.
The track featured here today is covered in delicious samples. It’s a disco influenced house jam with some nice violin strings that is old and new all at the same time. #untz/tom
