Hunter Siegel is a diamond in the rough for fans who enjoy house, yet grow tired of the recent mainstream sensibilities the genre has had to offer. With a genre moving at lightning speed, the past is becoming quickly forgotten in the technological age, but Siegel’s sound may be the solution to our problem. Although we are no stranger to shining light on niche genres that reflect the old-school production styles a little better, Hunter Siegel ladens his Soundcloud with hashtags depicting #RetroFuture, upon which combines classic thumping basslines mixed with intelligently-produced modern synths. What makes Siegel’s approach to house slightly different is his attention to not only “trends” of the old, but combining them in such a way that doesn’t make the track sound dated, or lose integrity.
[Deep House] Jack U Ft. Kieza – Take U There (Hunter Siegel Remix)
For the past year, Hunter Siegel has been tirelessly remixing tracks like Take U There (by Jack U), but also making originals like “Still Waiting” which shows his hand at crafting original tracks. Most of Hunter’s tracks contain ambient and space-y production values that send some of his more retro sounds into a “sprocket” infused mojo that gives a “Jetsons-like” vibe, as in the past jelling oddly yet fluidly with the more “future” side of his #Retrofuture sound. All throughout his Soundcloud you will find tracks like OTF, a piece he did with AutoErotique that reflects him using darker tones that don’t take away the integrity of the house genre, but laces it with trap and dubstep influences.
Autoerotique & Hunter Siegel – OTF
Although OTF came out two months ago and is still pretty fresh on the scene, Hunter Siegel is fresh off of his August 28th Pool Party (which by the way you shouldn’t have missed). Keep an eye on Hunter Siegel for pulsating bass sounds of the past mixed with the cold and expert production techniques of modern times that give it a cutting edge. Hunter Siegel should definitely stay on your DJ Radar.
