After an incredible summer season, we are excited to announce the latest Glitterbox compilation Hotter Than Fire, mixed by our long-standing resident Melvo Baptiste. The record features the upfront disco heat that has been setting off the dancefloor all summer at Glitterbox parties in New York, London and Ibiza. A strong contender for the hottest party on earth, Melvo has headlined Hï Ibiza for another record-breaking season this summer, with the compilation offering an insight into his expertly crafted sets. Hotter Than Fire channels the energy of a Glitterbox event, and will be available on 3 x CD, 2 x LP, download and streaming. 

Featuring highlights from the Glitterbox imprint such as The Shapeshifters’ gloriously instrumented ‘Life Is A Dancefloor’, a record that has enchanted dancefloors since its release, featuring CHIC lead vocalist Kimberly Davis, the record also includes brand-new heat like JKriv’s ‘Yo Love’ and KON’s remix of Qwestlife’s ‘Fever’, a track that features iconic US talent including Sugarhill Gang and Siedah Garrett. 

Transitioning through the decades, ‘Hotter Than Fire’ traces all the way from the 1978 soulful-disco cut ‘Gotta Keep Trying’ by Tenderness, Goldie Alexander’s 1981 ‘Show You My Love’ and the 1983 ‘Body Work’ (Vocal Mix) by Hot Streak, through to warm 90’s sounds such as Masters At Work’s Club Dub of CHIC’s ‘Chic Mystique’ and Shay Jones ‘When Love Calls’ (E-Smoove's Late Night). Transitioning gradually into 2019, the compilation also features upfront house and disco exclusively available on the compilation like Loods ‘Love’ and the Kormak remix of Low Steppa ‘You’re My Life’. 

Demonstrating what Glitterbox does best, Hotter Than Fire re-creates the atmosphere of the party, with an abundance of disco, house and soulful sounds that embody the hands-in-the-air, euphoric, confetti-filled moments that the events are loved for. With the download versions including exclusive continuous mixes from Melvo himself, Hotter Than Fire truly brings Glitterbox to you.

Hotter Than Fire will be available to download and stream on 13th September, pre-order here. Pre-order vinyl on the D-Store on CD, LP1 and LP2.
