Drop the Lime – “Hot as Hell”

Here’s a whole chunk of tantalising rockabilly to get your teeth into!

The Depository recently entertained the boys from Love Hate Productions as they brought New York based DJ and producer Drop the Lime over to record the video to his new tune “Hot as Hell”. Recently snapped up by Ministry of Sound Drop the Lime, AKA Luca Venezia, is the man behind Brooklyn’s notorious Trouble and Bass club night. With his influences stretching across the musical spectrum to include genres as diverse as Northern Soul, grime and minimal techno “Hot as Hell” manages to fuse rockabilly and dance together in a way that wouldn’t seem possible.

The catchy tune is currently big in England with the likes of Annie Mac and Zane Lowe while Switch and Diplo have been rinsing it the other side of the pond. Everyone knows what a bit of upbeat country and western can do to a party so we might just see this one take off! Look out for its release in January and check out his official site for European tour dates.

For any East London locals out there see if you can spot any of the Dalston institutions dotted throughout the video!

Have your say!
