boutique portsmouth-based label hotplates recordings unleashes its first vinyl, a two-track dubstep excursion from hamburg producer otz.
label manager of the noted subaltern records, otz has been crafting his sound since 2011 – combining detailed instrumentation with a dub-heavy backbone.
side a, ‘tabloid’, has received support from respected independent london station nts, receiving airplay on nsx’ roll thru show. the track is a guaranteed rig-shaker with a wonky, off-kilter structure.
side b sees otz team up with fellow german heavyweights causa and conzi on the sub-filled ‘coin dub’ – a track that has been sought after by fans of the genre for a number of years.
hotplates recordings places its emphasis on the roots of uk electronic music culture, having grown out of a regular show on portsmouth pirate and online station lush fm. with this release the label aims to give fans a fresh take on the original dubstep sound, while also shedding light on the significant talent to have come out of the german scene in recent years.
