An interview with Hot Since 82

With the chart topping “Let It Ride,” a forthcoming EP on Noir Music and his latest production “Sundown” receiving huge support from Radio 1, we think big things are ahead for Daley Padley a.k.a Hot Since 82. We sent over a few questions to get an idea of the mustachioed man behind the nice music!

Why Hot Since 82?

I’ve had a couple of years out of the music industry and wanted to return with a new name. I was born in ’82 and I’m a ‘bloody bonny bugger’ (in a very Yorkshire accent.) There u have it… SIMPLES!

Which generation would you like to have been born in?

It would be amazing to have been a teenager in the 80’s … I’m in love with that decade!

Skirts or leggings?

Jeggings ??

You can save one item from a burning building… What is it?

My iTunes!

Leeds or London?

Leeds baby, you know dis.

Best club night in the UK?

Faversham in the Leeds summer

Plain white or wholemeal?

Wholemeal of course.

Actor you would go gay for?

Vinyl or CD? Why?

Ok this is a funny one, as it depends on what state the DJ booth is on arrival. If the 1210’s look fucked, I’m gonna use Traktor with the CD’s, but vinyls cool, I’m down for whatever as long as I ‘aint hitting that SYNC button.
