Drinking to their tenth year in the game, Hive Audio enter 2022 with a celebratory compilation triptych featuring some of the finest names in the house and techno scenes. For this first salvo of incendiary wares bound to bring dance floors to a steady simmer, HA have gathered a stellar cast of big-guns and longtime affiliates including Seth Troxler, Anja Schneider, Steve Bug, Mathias Kaden, Gorge and Dario D’Attis. Anja Schneider’s “Aperol Spritz” toasts first with a fuzzy mix of rolling 4×4 dynamics and sleek textured synth arpeggios. A paced-up number both lounge-ready yet lacking no oomph when a solid kickstart move is required, this one’s better tasted on the rocks with a mini-umbrella in it. Meanwhile, Seth Troxler’s contribution “Crypto Slave” pulls out the sturdy bass leads and bouncy keyboard work for some fun roller-coaster action with something of a carefree, early 90s rave vibe to it. Ideal for gym-tonic sessions in your fav neon-coloured, form-hugging outfit. A most fitting manifesto of a tune, Steve Bug’s overly suave “Let’s Go” cuts a path of sense-awakening hedonism in the club with its battery of sizzling-hot bass, love-making-like churn and sensual pep talk oozing guilty pleasures ahead. Old-school to the core, Dario D’Attis “Tanzstube” loops us in a turn-of-the-millennium filtered-house kind of headspace, replete with the soulful, sample-heavy hooks and end-to-end funky swagger bound to trigger some ravishing memories and create new ones amongst the dancers. A smashing, hard-shuffling workout hybridised with a Quadrant Dub type of distant lineage, Gorge’s “Azami” goes for the epic-sized rather than the intimately acclimated. Primed for both hi-impact and long-distance use, this is gutsy stuff with enough stamina to withstand the most feverish of nights. Mathias Kaden’s 303-boosted treat “Acid Trip” does exactly what’s written on the tin, so expect a wild deluge of flickering new beat-informed rhythms, untamed drums and lysergic bass ellipses to keep you and your friends on the edge of mental sanity throughout. Question is, are you ready?//
