Spencer Hickson's Tactal Hots Music has developed into one of the premier imprints for underground progressive house. The UK label now boosts regular appearances from Blusoul, Simon Firth and Sven Hauck who many agree are 3 producers on the cusp of something big. The labels 26th release is out this week and it sees a great package of remixes for the UK band No More Navigators 'Home' EP which was released in August of 2011. Providing the new remixes are: Blusoul, Simon Firth, Ryan Luciano and Sasha Le Monnier.

First up is Simon's interpretation of 'Home' which begins with a very serene, sombre vibe with soft tones, twinkly synths and interesting beat patterns. The uniqueness of the beats is immediately captivating and it leads to the first drop where a heavily processed vocal gets introduced along with an old school sounding hypnotic synth. A wealth of atmospheric elements build the piece to the introduction of the main vocal hook which is a long soulful sounding wail that sits perfectly amidst some emotional key changes. Great remix from Simon and a very strong start to the EP.

Well known DJ Sasha Le Monnier provides the next interpretation of 'Home' and it begins with a warm round kick and some cool electronic gates. Well placed vocal snips and a hooky sequence of bells create a wonderful swing and the groove of the track is solid as it builds towards the main drop. It's a smooth transition into the spacey sounding interlude and an even smoother move back to Sasha's cool groove for a nice finish to the record.

Up next is Blusoul's take on 'She Wore Black' and from the moment it begins you can sense the overall professionalism that Blusoul has with his productions. Intricate sounds and a club friendly groove lead the piece off and it quickly gets immersed in waves of hazy atmosphere and wavering hypnotic elements. it's cool and contemporary sounding by today's prog house standards and it shows Blusoul is really a producer on the rise. Once the vocal elements drop and the airy pads hover off above the depth of the composition increases dramatically. The middle section of the track is absolutely spectacular; void of any significant breakdown the piece strips it's self down for the introduction of some the softest and most emotionally stimulating synths we've heard all year. Outstanding stuff from Blusoul!

The Simon Firth interpretation of 'She Wore Black' is next and it begins with some alternating soft stabs which already form a decent groove even before the bass line is dropped. Spacey synths and some intricate electronics build some subtle atmospheric tension before the smooth vocal lines are introduced. From here an amazing section of chord changes and glimmering synths provide what is truly a magical moment that should see loads of cheers from your dance floor.

Next up is UK producer Ryan Luciano who is making his second appearance on Tactal Hots here with his remix of 'Two Minus One'. Ryan's been a firm favorite with Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren over the years for his amazing bootleg productions and has had a strong 2012 thus far with productions on Stripped, Ensonic and his own Light Digital imprint. His 'Two Minus One' interpretation focuses on a deadly vocal loop which is completely hypnotic and utterly infectious. The introduction of some big bassy chord changes really pushes the track over the top and will remind many of some of Funk D' Void's older productions. Amazing work from Ryan and one that would have to be considered one of his best to date.

The package is closed out with Simon Firth's 3rd remix on the package and it does not disappoint. Simon's 'Two Minus One' interpretation is a swirling euphoric journey that's got great vocal elements , ethereal sounding synths and an overall celestial atmosphere. The vocals really shine here, Simon's done a great job balancing the vocal with all the subtle melodic elements that surround the piece. Everything here works really well together and it's just a joy to listen to. Smooth classy stuff from Simon and an all round killer package from Tactal Hots which would have to be considered the strongest release on the label to date. Release Promo Hype Chart Top 10
