Following her remix of Terry Farley & Wade Teo's "Why We Dance," Hilit steps up to the Rekids plate with her debut EP for Radio Slave's label with her single "Hot Mess." A relentlessly driving drum machine workout, "Hot Mess" sees her masterfully mixing compulsive, marching rhythms with a fiercely impassioned spoken word vocal.

With added raw jackin' energy in the "Even Hotter Mix," this has the kind of late-night runway energy that demands the Sound Factory be rebuilt. On the B-side, Chicago house legend Mike Dunn's remix of "Hot Mess" is a deep groove that adds a wriggling earworm bassline, while still embracing the enchanting vocal of the original.

Hilit Kolet has been an integral part of London's house scene ever since she started slinging vinyl at Soho's legendary Black Market Records. Her distinctive, energetic DJ style then established her behind the decks everywhere, from high fashion shows to some of the most celebrated underground clubs in London. 2023 saw Hilit going global with shows from Ibiza to Shanghai via Printworks, Warehouse Project, and Ministry of Sound.

Her summer single on the Faith imprint "POV Siren" has been embraced by DJs as diverse as Robert Hood and Paul Woolford, and her edit of Laurent Garnier's "Crispy Bacon" was rinsed by many from Carl Cox to Patrick Topping, before seeing an official release by Garnier himself. "Hot Mess" sets Hilit Kolet up as a serious name to watch out for in 2024.
