Northern star Denney returns to Hot Creations with his West Coast Revival EP – a full power nod to the early days of his career, inviting Liverpool’s latest export Melé and Denver tech-house pioneer Hipp-e to provide the remixes.
Denney ’s West Coast Revival is a testament to the talented producer’s love of old West Coast records. “I used to play this sound when I first started DJing in clubs in the early 00s”. Tracks produced by “Joeski, Onionz, H-Foundation, Tony Hewitt and DJ Buck”. The original cut of the track is Denney’s take on that era, underpinned by a low-slung, rolling bassline, a sultry sax solo, beckoning male vocal hook and abundant percussion.
Released: 10th May 2019

Club Bad founder Melé makes his first appearance on the label with his remix. Heavy on the percussion, he creates a tribal ambience with a deep and driving bass that pushes it into peaktime party territory. With almost three decades in the business, Hipp-e is widely regarded as being one of the pioneers of the West Coast scene. He co-founded H-Foundation, which held a residency at fabric for eight years. His version steers the track into darker territory, creating an insatiable late-night aesthetic.
2018 was a huge year for James Denney, aka Denney. He produced a slew of releases for top imprints including Saved Records, Relief, Knee Deep In Sound, Moon Harbour and Pete Tong’s FFRR. His skills as a DJ have seen him tour globally taking in Brazil, Argentina and Australia as well as Europe and North America, where he held down a residency at Miami’s infamous Heart. He has also been a regular figure in Ibiza at DC10 and Amnesia. In 2019, Denney’s pace shows no sign of slipping with plenty of releases in the pipeline as well as plans to launch a series of events in his hometown of Middlesborough and his own label.
