One thing we’ve been grateful for in 2013 is Hostage. Dude’s got a real handle on the house scene, from jackin’ to tech to dirty, filthy bassline bits, and every month this year he’s sorted out a stellar studio mix. My one hope for 2014 is that he keeps this up. Or, rather, I have two hopes: one being that he keeps this up, two being that he sorts an exclusive for DAD. With the influx of music that clogs our inboxes, Twitter feeds, and Facebook timelines, it’s always great to hear Hostage, jackin’ to the beat of his own drum, bringing us an hour’s worth of faceless house bits to sink our collective teeth into. Keep doing you, Hostage!
