Hot Picks: Brazilian talent Classmatic turns some timeless cuts

Brazilian talent Classmatic is next up on Hot Creations with the two-track 'Toma Dale'. Having already set dancefloors alight at the hands of label heads Jamie Jones and Lee Foss, the eagerly anticipated release drops this April.

Classmatic has built up a lot of traction over recent years, catching the eyes and ears of major heavyweights in the field, releasing under such labels as Solid Grooves and Hottrax and in 2021 he remixed Cloonees’ major hit, When The Sun Goes Down. Receiving support from artists such as Seth Troxler, Michael Bibi, Pete Tong and Loco Dice to name a few, it comes as no surprise when we say there is a bright future ahead for the talented artist.

With his upcoming release on Hot Creations drawing ever-closer, we asked Classmatic to join our Hot Picks series by providing a choice selection of some of his favourite tracks:

Black Sheep - Strobelite Honey (Def Version)

This track is one of my favourite tracks since I heard it for the first time. This is really house and that melody is so beautiful and energetic at the same time!

The Streets - Weak Become Heroes (Ashley Beedle's Love Bug Vocal Mix)

That’s the perfect jam to celebrate great moments. These vocals, these chords and these melodies are a perfect match!

MD X-Spress - God Made Me Phunky

It was one of the first house music tunes I ever heard. That bassline and that piano melody are so dope and solid. I could hear that loop for my entire life!

Mr. Ho & Mogwaa - Bail-E

This one represents the Funk 2000’s from Brazil and it’s 100% what I used to hear when I was a teenager.

Kenlou - Moonshine (Masters At Work Remix)

I love to play this kind of vibe in the middle of my set as a warehouse moment. I love these organ stabs and also the sax melody from this track!

Last Pines - Issue

One of my favourite peak time tracks for my DJ sets at the moment. I love that minimal acid vibe and those vocal cuts!

Azari & III - Hungry For The Power (Jamie Jones Ridge Street Mix)

This track represents everything for me. Especially about my release on Hot Creations. It was the track that changed everything and I decided to become a producer. It’s so dope to realize that I’m releasing my music on JJ’s label right now. This remix is a masterpiece!

The Beloved - Ease The Pressure (Red Nail Enhanced Club Mix)

Red Nail is next level. These voices are just incredible between these piano stabs! It’s a perfect jam for my long sets.

Unknown Artist - A1: Activator

One of the sickest bass I’ve heard with minimalistic sound effects!

Classmatic - El Primer Corazón

I couldn’t forget one of my tracks of course. And that’s not the reason I chose this one. It’s because this track means a lot to me and it’s been the most killer track on my DJ Sets recently! These Rhodes chords give me goosebumps all the time. It’s a track that would be timeless in my opinion!

Classmatic's 'Toma Dale' is out on 22nd April on Hot Creations.
