Helped with the graphic design on these! They turned out great.
Liquid Beat Records is proud to announce the debut digital and vinyl EP from Portland, OR based producer HOT16, entitled “1983”.
Utilizing a wide variety of production techniques that includes samples, drum machines, keyboards, and additional live players, HOT16 has crafted a unique sound that lovingly references the 80s & 90s while simultaneously maintaining a modern edge.
Of course, the production is only half the story of “1983”. Featured on the EP is a varied group of extremely talented singers and emcees that help bring the project to life. Included on the release are collaborations with MC Melodee, Vursatyl (from Lifesavas), Reva DeVito, Swan Coltrane & Thaddeus David (from Seattle’s Moor Gang), and Ronnie & EPP (from TxE).
“1983” is a funky, soulful record that captures the spirit of the golden era of R&B and Hip-Hop and reimagines it for modern times with magnificent results.
The “1983” EP is now available for pre-order via:
The “Falling” remix by Liquid Beat Records producer Roane Namuh is also available digitally and on limited 7” at http://bit.ly/1cHjnCy

I’d spent the last 2 nights in PDX (Portland) and reached out to my homie Dan Kinto (Graphic Designer/Producer/rad dude) aka HOT16 about catching up as we hadn’t had a good sit down for over 2 or 3 years. I rolled by his studio, got to peep his latest EP which was HOT from the vinyl Test Pressing plant, and loved what I heard.
Stay tuned for the EP to drop on Portland’s own 'Liquid Beat Records' late February and follow HOT16 on Soundcloud:

Poster promoting the release party for HOT16 and Roane Namuh’s new digital and split 7” single that bridges the gap between two other great releases on Liquid Beat Records, Reva DeVito and Roane Namuh’s “Cloudshine Deluxe” digital and vinyl LP, and the forthcoming 6 song LP by producer HOT16 entitled “1983”. The two beatsmiths swapped remixes from each other’s projects to give each song a unique twist indicative of their respective sounds.
