Hot Lipps Inc. - Foolish Pride / High Expectations (Hot Lipps Records)

Toronto producers Hot Lipps Inc. get a little more techy with their latest Hot Lipps Records label offering. Unlike previous releases, Peter & Steve Primiani forgo any remixes on this one, simply featuring two original tracks produced, arranged, and mixed by the brothers themselves.

Foolish Pride” is the first track and it’s a dynamic tech house piece with a boisterous bass line, soft pads, and a liberal use of vocal bits.

The second track, “High Expectations,” is a textbook amalgamation of deep and tech house, featuring a masterful bass line with synths layered cleverly on top. Their veteran touch shows through well-placed percussive elements and smooth hi hats that keep the groove never sounding repetitive.

These two standalone tracks add up to another stellar release on Hot Lipps Records.
