A Side: 'Hot This Year' Is the first track in this nostalgic and retrospective release. It harks back to the sunny yesteryear of summer 2013, where the rain clouds had parted ways, and the sun shone for week upon glorious week throughout the whole of Europe. Shawty's were out in their masses, and those ragga jungle MC's were bibbydibbying about London, bringing the good vibes to all that could hear. Deekline and Ed Solo could also be found, oiling themselves up and blinding people with their studio tans, whilst out recording these ragga jungle 'O Lord a mercying MC's - and this track is quite the perfect result.
The B Side 'Remember' was inspired not only by the lovely sampled vocals here, but also because Deekline really wanted to remind Ed Solo about the time he lent him a fiver to get some of those good ole Brighton chips and a can of Coke (because Ed had worked up such a hunger from rinsing out those B lines). Poor Deekline never saw that precious cash again and instead of simply asking for it back, he thought he'd try to ask for it subliminally by digging out these wonderful vocals and taking them into the studio with him. Needless to say this new passive aggressive style of hinting/taking a dig, bred by the use of social networking, didn't pay off (gettit). So Ed, can you give Deekline back his fiver?
