Tyler Hill is an artist who dips into many musical influences, from funk to European electronica to synth-infused 80s magical via hip hop and electronica. He plays all around Toronto’s key venues, is one half of DJ duo +ONE and hosts a residency at Wiggle Room, which is also the name of the label he recently launched with his long-time friend and manager, Takin Nateghi.
Opener ‘Smooth‘ is a heavy and thumping track that drips with sweat and sleazy vocals. The bass rumbles down low, and the raw percussion adds extra menace to this assured dance floor workout. AVNU is one of Maceo Plex’s most hotly-tipped acts of recent years. He is based on the East Coast of Scotland and dropped his superbly adventurous album ‘Tough To Love But Worth The Effort’ here in May 2022 and then followed it up with a collaboration with Maceo on ‘Clickbait (This Ain’t Hollywood)’ back in July. His remix is explosive, with serrated synths flashing about the mix and distorted bass bringing extra darkness to the original. The superb ‘Move‘ is another solid house sound with a wonky low end and swaying drums that swing low. Rising synths keep things moving while dub-wise vocals layer some Afro influence to this most characterful of tracks.
Tyler Hill again shows why he is such a hot property in house music with this latest offering.
