A familiar sound returns....like an old friend. Hot Station, the collaboration in between DJ 19 and Hideout, strike back on the 19BOX(JUKEBOX) RECORDINGS imprint. Japanese experts dive back into their roots to serve up the sounds that came early house with highlights that would have been heard at the time. The dreamy Balearic-inspired track 'Happiest House' marks their first release of new music in nearly six years, combining beautiful piano melodies and 80s style guitar samples to form a surefire summer anthem.

The first remix comes courtesy of South African producer Enno Karr AKA One Less Of Them and Bread N Butta, with a driving progressive infused remix here. 

The third and final interpretation comes from Serge Gee, who is our favorite Mexican diplomat of Jackin house. With a deep atmosphere, his remix adds a unique layer to the release.

エレクトリック・ヒップ・ファンクを標榜するHOT STATION(DJ 19 + HIDEOUT)が約6年もの充電期間を経て、これまでとはガラリと作風を変えたシングル「Happiest House」を投下。流麗なピアノを全面に従え、80sなギター・リフを配し、バレアリックな雰囲気を纏った初期ハウスを彷彿させる作品に仕上がっている。また、南アフリカ出身でカナダからポルトガルに活動拠点を移したBREAD N NUTTAやONE LESS OF THEM名義でも活躍するENNO KARRがプログレッシヴ・ハウスに、メキシコのジャッキン・ハウス大使であるSERGE GEEはディープ・ハウスな要素も加味したリミックスに置換。夏のアンセムになること間違いなし!
