Hot Lipps Inc. - Need In You (Hot Lipps Records)

Hot Lipps Records is back with its fourth release, comprised of three superb floor-filling cuts from producers Hot Lipps Inc. continuing an impressive string of summer singles. Made up of Toronto based producers Peter and Steve Primiani, formerly of 83 West Records and Camouflage Recordings, Hot Lipps Inc. unveil “Need In You,” a house music track with a capital ‘H’ that masterfully harks back to nightclubbing’s glory days. A rousing vocal is lifted from a classic record and incorporated in a smooth and sweet manner, while 909 rhythms and organ chords add to the ’90s feel. This one truly aims to shake up the dance floor. A top shelf remix of “Need In You” comes courtesy of Lost My Dog Records lead man Pete Dafeet who utilizes many of the original track’s elements and adds his own magic touch. Relying strongly on the organ and bass lines, the arrangement builds purposefully with a definite after-hours appeal. Two bonus Hot Lipps Inc. original cuts follow, lead by “Step Out Don’t Stop” which churns in a deep, dubby, bass-heavy fashion, propelled with inventive use of hip hop vocal samples. “Day Before The Last” closes the EP in the deeper zone, using flowing warm pads, a mid-tempo four-on-the-floor groove, and rhythmic vocal snippets to reveal a lush late night journey.
