Hot Sugar, the New York based musician and owner of the Noise Collector record label, has songs that sample random sounds from his everyday life to create electronic beats for an experience that’s much more than unique.
Imagine yourself walking out the front door. It’s a sunny morning. You’re eating a hot and gooey PB&J until the next thing you know the beat drops and you’re sifting your way through shards of glass in zero gravity. Surprisingly, it’s friendly, simple, and gets you where you need to go.
Check out “Beer Cans & Bubblegum” and “The Child They Left Behind” on YouTube.
He’s also been gaining exposure through a featured series on Noisey’s YouTube channel.
