Belgian in origin, Igor Vicente and DkA join forces to create two monster tracks for their Haus Boo EP on Hot Creations. Championed by Jamie Jones, Lee Foss and Richy Ahmed it arrives hot on the heels of Hot Creations’s Paradise events series announcement for Ibiza 2016, this is music made for those heady nights on the DC10 terrace.
The EP features two original tracks from the pair: a-side “Haus Boo,” which was inspired by the classic tune “House Nation,” and then b-side tune “Shady,” taking the release into a much darker realm with an addictive beat full of endless hi-hats and relentless snares.
Infatuated with music from a young age, Igor Vicente founded the Belgian Wildfamily Parties in which Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Dinky and Matthew Styles among others have all played. Some years later he formed one half of Ultrasone, and has released on Get Physical, Mobilee and Hot Creations multiple times. These days you can catch him playing at one of his two residencies in Belgium, Cafe d’Anvers and Fuse, and founding the label State of Flow.
DkA has his roots firmly placed in the house music scene and has taken his sounds all over Europe, whilst releasing on Get Physical Music, Mobilee Records and Play Label Records to name just a few.

Interview with Igor Vicente:
Can you explain the inspiration behind Haus Boo? How is this EP special from some of your other recent productions?
Well I’ve a lot of influences and the night before I played the all time classic The House Master Boyz and The Rude Boy Of House ‘House Nation’ and it just happened in the studio, I didn’t make this track especially for Hot Creations but I guess this music was going to fit perfectly with the label orientation so I sent it to Jay and he loved it!
How did you first link up with Jamie Jones?
I booked Jamie back in 2007 at my parties Wildfamily, since we always got in touch, when I started to produce under the Ultrasone moniker Seth sent him one of our track called “Breathe n Pop” and it was my first release on HC bak in 2011. since I did a solo release “The Knight ep” and now the new one. I like Jamie as a person he’s also a great dj and it’s important and great for me to know that my music his considered by such cool person whatever how big they are, they deserve it and stay cool. I’m happy that we still have people like him in the scene.
What does your creative process in the studio entail? Any rituals?
Not really, I’m a very emotional person so it all depend on what is happening in my life at the moment, my mood, my energy and what I play, I never start to make a track for a label, and it’s the best way I guess to find a flow and creativity.
How was the collab with DkA special from the rest?
We have different styles and approach on the music and it’s very interesting, make the sound more hybrid and less conventional, we don’t agree all the time and it’s kinda exciting when we hear what is coming out of this.
What cool gigs are on the horizon for you this summer?
The summer is looking good, I’ve some shows with Mobilee; also I’ll play for Elrow 6th birthday, Paradise at DC10 and Pacha Barcelona, I’m looking forward and will have lot of fun for sure.
Thank you and Enjoy your summer!
