GET HOT is the new side project of Jakwob and FTSE and ‘PARTY’ is the first single to be released from the pair’s forthcoming EP. ‘PARTY’ is a love letter to the past with a future sound. An unpleasant surprise.

GET HOT played their keyboards like guitars and formed a band. They met each other 6 weeks ago to try writing together.  They instantly connected as they discovered they shared masses of mutual friends from when they were both playing in hardcore bands whilst in Leicester area (FTSE lives there, Jakwob was at College there).  They’d even shared bills but their paths had never crossed until they got together to write…supposedly…some dance/electronic tunes.   Within an hour of meeting they were in Jakwob’s live room, feeding keyboards through guitar amps and playing live drums.  They’ve now nearly got an album worth of material and recently performed their debut shows at The Great Escape festival.

The track received its radio premiere by Zane Lowe on Radio 1 and has also received plays by Phil & Alice (Radio 1) and Jon Kennedy (XFM). The band will perform their first headline show in London in July. Not bad for a band that didn’t exist 6 weeks ago. | |
