Midnight (The Hanging Tree)’ Feat. Jalja is Pete Tong’s first Essential New Tune of the decade
German DJ, producer and label owner HOSH teams up with Italian newcomer 1979 on his new single ‘Midnight (The Hanging Tree)’ Feat Jalja, which sees its commercial release on Friday 10th January via Three Six Zero Recordings.
A scintillating slice of melodic house, with vocals by London based singer Jalja, ‘Midnight (The Hanging Tree)’ Feat. Jalja sees HOSH and 1979 craft a sparse, emotive soundscape that lingers long in the memory. The stunning official video sees Tim Burton-reminiscent animation that acts as a perfect visual representation of the track’s eerie yet emotive vibe.
“This track happened like a magic call,” HOSH explains. “When 1979 sent me an instrumental it made a click and in my head I heard the hanging tree vocal on top of it. It turned out it was a perfect match, so I took it from there, made my adjustments and re-recorded the vocal with the talented Jalja.”
Previously released exclusively on Beatport in December 2019 via HOSH’s fryhide label, ‘Midnight (The Hanging Tree)’ Feat. Jalja reached #1 in Melodic House and Techno Tracks playlist and currently sits at #2 in the main Beatport Chart. The track has now been picked up by Radio 1 selectors Annie Mac as this week’s ‘Hottest Record’ and was previously Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune, the first of the decade. The release coincides with HOSH’s set at Berlin’s Watergate on 11th January, while he will also travel to Brazil to play at the fabled Warung Beach Club the following Friday, 17th January.
Affiliated with Diynamic Music and label boss of fryhide, the Hamburg-born artist has been an active member of the electronic music scene for over 15 years. Having made a melodic mark on the scene with the success of releases such as ‘Woohoo’ and ‘Cilantro’ which amassed a combined 5.8 million Spotify streams, HOSH has firmly cemented his position as one of the most diverse artists in the electronic music industry.
