Three Hot Creations titans team up as Lee Foss, Detlef and Anabel Englund collaborate on the two-track Thunder & Lightning. Released on 20th November, the EP marks the trio’s debut collaboration and sees Lee and Anabel return to the label for the first time in six years.
Speaking on the release, Lee Foss described how he was “excited to be back on Hot Creations with two of [his] favorite artists”, whilst Detlef echoed a similar sentiment, stating that “this collaboration felt truly natural and that genuinely shows in this production.” Anabel Englund also shared her excitement for Thunder & Lightning, saying that she “loves how it found a home at Hot Creations. I Have Synthed is so sexy too, it feels good to put this out.”
Thunder & Lightning sets the tone, with hard-hitting drums residing atop a subtle underlying bassline. Anabel’s stunning vocals soon stir up feelings of intensity and resilience, before the infectious kick-hat backbone comes back in to form an emotive, dancefloor cut. I Have Synthed completes proceedings in a manner reminiscent of its title, featuring synth-heavy groove, acid-twinged bass and Anabel’s enigmatic vocals once more.
