Here are the individual features of the show and we thank everyone for their input. The music has blown us away this month. No short supply of goodness…
This months classic track: Maurice Joshua – This is Acid
Featured label: Glasgow’s Hot Gem.
Hot Gem is a small independent label based in Glasgow, supported by partners in Hamburg.
Hot Gem was initially set up late 2013 to release management roster artists, but is now open to working with all artists, as long as it includes an electronic element and a point of difference.
Current artist releases are Machines in Heaven, with forthcoming releases from Fiona Soe Paing, Modifier, Yutani, Monkoora and El Topo, the latter two later this year and early next year.
In its relatively short life span Hot Gem has had releases used to soundtrack a Mulberry campaign, as well as a prime time tv advertising campaign slot with a Scottish newspaper, as well as numerous festival showcase pieces, some British tv, as well as an International award winning film soundtrack (Stripped the Documentary). Hot Gem has also had artists asked down to Red Bull studios to record.
Big Up Hot Gem!
We played a few tunes from the label including the superb and beautiful new Machines in Heaven single “Displacer”
and also “Hearts” by Atom Tree
FIONA SOE PAING – Hotgems most recent addition
Hotgem are more than a little excited to welcome the extraordinarly talented Fiona Soe Paing to Hot Gem.
Bigged up by the likes if Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode) & Christ (ex Boards of canada), Fiona is certainly one to watch. Her single ‘Heartbeat’ will be released 19th of June, LP to follow soon. Meanwhile feast your eyes on this incredible trailer for her stunning show (animation designed by her partner in crime Zennor Alexander) #AlienLullabies which you can catch at the Made in Scotland Showcase, Edinburgh Festival Fringe – Summerhall. Performance dates: 12-16 and 19-23 August.
All the best to Clair and everyone on Hot Gem!
