Get Hot: Drugs

Get Hot is the brand new collaborative project between established electronic producers, FTSE and Jakwob.

After meeting each other for the first time to try and concoct beats, FTSE & Jakwob instead birthed something much more ballistic than they could have expected. Six weeks later, Get Hot was born and they announced details of their debut and unrelenting AA-side single, ‘PARTY / DRUGS’.

Connecting instantly, like perfect circuitry, the two discovered they shared a punk love, as well as masses of mutual friends, from when they were both playing in hardcore bands previously. They’d even shared stages on the same bills, but their paths had never crossed until they got together to write with computers. Within an hour of meeting they were in Jakwob’s live room, feeding keyboards through amps like guitars, Jakwob letting loose behind the kit, and FTSE screaming his heart out. The results: a fully-charged love letter to their lineage.

Debuting their live show at two packed out ‘word of mouth’ gigs at Brighton’s The Great Escape in May, Get Hot recently made their first London appearance at the Old Blue Last. The excitement was also accompanied by plenty more tunes where ‘Party’ & ‘Drugs’ come from: despite their more familiar producer monikers, an explosive live gig is very much where they are at. Both are also very straight-up in their anti-drug message when they say, “don’t do drugs or you’ll end up like us.”
