Over the past few years we've become familiar with Solo Dan's slick production dexterity, whether it was as one half of Perth two-piece GRRL PAL or more recently, under his solo, aptly-named moniker Solo Dan. After his slightly Kaytranada-esque debut single So Hey completely won us over last year, he's now followed it (and an official remix of Client Liaison's Where Do We Belong) up with another summery, funk-fuelled cut titled Hotstep. Featuring vocals from Perth up-and-comer Quincy, Hotstep is a quick-paced house number overflowing with bright, sun-stroked vibes, uniting this light vocal line with catchy vocal samples, playful melodies and this driving percussion line thick with claps and bass.

It's a bit more of a dance-focused number in comparison to his solo debut, something which Solo Dan says was heavily influenced by the project's theme of creating fun and inclusive dance music. "I had just started this project and was trying to work out what “Solo Dan” was all about," he says on the project. "I was trying to create fun, inclusive, dance-worthy music, while also trying to keep myself unassociated with the 'EDM bro culture'." Dive into the track below, and stay tuned on the now Sydney-based musician's next moves as he positions himself as one to watch amongst the Australian dance music scene.
