Icee Hot Reveals Final Release from Vin Sol & Matrixxman; Preview It Now
The SF-based label will complete its run with a collaborative EP from the West Coast pair.
San Francisco party-turned-label Icee Hot (which, we should again point out, is co-run by XLR8R editor Shawn Reynaldo) will conclude its run with its 10th and final release next month, a collaborative effort from prolific West Coast producers Vin Sol and Matrixxman. The forthcoming Daddy Issues EP is said to find the Soo Wavey label heads “putting their fleet of analog gear to work” across the record’s three original tracks, which come joined by a remix from Icee Hot co-founder Ghosts on Tape. While the EP’s title is partially a nod to San Francisco’s rich history of mixing electronic music and burgeoning counterculture, Daddy Issues also stems from a personal connection between the two producers at its helm. “The truth behind it is painfully simple actually,” Matrixxman explains in a press release. “Vin’s father died at young age and my father is dead to me, figuratively speaking. Subsequently, we both have grappled with myriad daddy issues over the years. It’s a common bond that we have shared. We are blood brothers actually, an oath we took about six years ago, as a result of this.”
The 10th and final record from Icee Hot is set to arrive on February 2. Ahead of its release, the SF crew will throw its final party on January 24 and 25; a 28-hour mini-festival of sorts that will include sets from Robert Hood, Gerd Janson, Joey Anderson, Kowton, Maxmillion Dunbar, Pender Street Steppers, John Roberts, Galcher Lustwerk, and many others in its marathon run. A flier for the party has been included below, while more details can be found here. Furthermore, Vin Sol & Matrixxman’s upcoming Daddy Issues EP for the label can also be previewed below.
