Hot Natured - 'Different Side Of The Sun'
Weak songwriting makes for an ok album, but not much moreMore on Various Artists
6 / 10 The success of Disclosure and Rudimental means now is the time to gather your mates and start making music for the dancefloor. Hot Natured – producers Jamie Jones, Lee Foss and Luca C and vocalist Ali Love – do just that, providing deep house cuts with a continental flavour. They do at least sound like they’ve ventured beyond their bedrooms: ‘Isis’ invokes the Egyptian goddess of the title, and Azari & III vocalist Starving Yet Full pops up on ‘People Change’. But ‘Different Sides…’ is let down by weak songwriting, with ‘Forward Motion’ and ‘Reverse Skydiving’ symptomatic of an album that lacks the huge chorus it badly needs.
