It’s hard to believe that we’re approaching 2 years since the orignal version of Hot Natured and Ali Love’s ‘Benediction’ landed with all it’s anthemic glory…. Well, wake up people, cause it’s the second coming! The ‘Benediction Remix EP’ is shaping up to be a serious heater and this fresh remix from South London based producer, GRADES is no exception.

After T Williams turned up the heat with his club edit of the track, we now get We’ve already had a club edit of Latch courtesy of lablemate T.Williams and we now have a 6 minute long silky smooth and dreamy deep house remix from Jamie Jones.
London based Jamie Jones and Chicago born Lee Foss are both well known producers on their own and also as Hot Natured. They’re also the masterminds behind the superb Hot Creations label. The duo has a knack for merging heavy bass lines with light pop melodies and r’n’b vocals to create wonderful house tracks and for the last couple of years it’s proven to have been quite difficult to spend some time on a dancefloor, near a swimming pool or on a terrace without hearing something they’ve been involved in or been an inspiration to.
This live set comes courtesy of Red Bull Music Academy Radio (check out the freshly revamped site) and is taken from their recent appearance at the Movement festival in Detroit showcases their abilities to mesmerize a crowd.
This isn’t the first time that Azari & III have made a video for “Hungry For The Power” – their previous effort had a bit of a censorship snafu with youtube, who felt that the pornographic, sexual, and possibly murderous themes expressed within it had no place on the interweb. You can watch a re-edited version of that video HERE, but it’s equally advisable to check out the new 2011 video version.
The first 30 seconds feel like they’re taken straight out of the Red Hot Chili Peppers video for “Scar Tissue”, right down to the pouring the sand out of your water canteen portion. But then, suddenly, BAM – it’s a beach party, lead vocalist Starving Yet Full is wearing lots of really dope looking clothes, and everyone is messing around outside their hotel room while a Toronto Blue Jays baseball cap gets heavily represented (their way of showing off their heritage, maybe).
Regardless of whether you’ve heard it before or bought it before, “Hungry For The Power” is out on Turbo Recordings with some spicy remixes from The Art Department and Jamie Jones.
