Exclusive Mixtape: Hot Tub

Canadian multi instrumentalist, DJ and producer Hot Tub put together a lil’ Valentine’s Day themed mix to get you in the mood! The dream of Hot Tub was born In late 2016, while Ryan Krumins was camping at a hot springs with friends in the Pacific Northwest. Always a fan of dance music, but in two indie/rock bands at the time, Ryan focused all his energy on learning how to produce house music using Ableton, learning from more experienced producers and honing his craft over countless hours. Hot Tub’s music has received support from record labels, blogs, festival acts, radio DJ’s and music curators alike, and his latest single reached #4 on the Hype Machine popular chart. A music lover as much as a musician, Hot Tub’s live sets feature live acoustic guitar & keys over carefully selected house and original songs with the dance floor in mind. 

“I had a great time putting together this mix! My style is a mix of deep, tech + minimal house, and I hope this mix takes you on a journey. In the theme of Valentines Day, I started it off with a romantic track by Sonny Fodera, and I used a photo of my wife on our honeymoon in Thailand as the artwork. It includes two unreleased tracks off of my upcoming EP with Ben Fox, an unreleased remix of mine for Woodhead on Tilted Records. and has tracks by some of my favourite producers, including LEFTI, Jerro, Paraleven, Neon Steve, and The Sponges and Dom Dolla.”
