Hot to trot Parisian producer and equine enthusiast, Chevals gallops in with a fresh EP for the Better Listen Records label out of Washington, D.C. His latest offering comes complete with a conceptual vision where as all the tunes included feature heavy sample usage of Japanese city pop classics… but with an added and unmistakeable, French touch. Totaling four tracks in all, the “Tokyo 2 Paris EP” offers many thrills and chills with is chunky percussion, liberal use of filters and undeniable grooves but, for this post, we’ll take a closer look at the toasty and tasty dancefloor burner, “HOT!”

Opening with a dreamy announcement from a lovely flight attendant preparing you for take off, we invite you to fasten your seat belt as the impending sensations of leaving the ground are soon at hand. Once airborne, a rolling bass groove takes us up to cruising altitude while a sweet keyboard riff invites all passengers to stand up, get on the floor and boogie our flight time of six minutes and fifty-four seconds away.
