Release Date: 26th November 2021
Capping off a busy year as producer, DJ and label owner, Rory Hamilton provides a quick follow up to October's ‘Think About Me’ EP with the third release on his Italo Hiits imprint.
Once again arriving on coloured 10” vinyl, ’Strangeness’ takes the label's twisted disco sound into new territories that draws on both the genre’s darker hedonistic side and its more nostalgic leanings. The two-tracker will arrive on opaque green 10” vinyl & digital formats in November 2021.
"Pure energy is the mantra for Italo Hiits. The topline on Strangeness carries this task on its shoulders whiles keeps the sleaze level high. Fun and filthy.
"Ski Sunday is a full 80s throwback, a full array of synths make up the journey, all the while rolling down the alps on full power.”

Hammer returns to his nascent Italo Hiits label for the second release of Hi-NRG grooves made in an Italo-inspired period of furiously productive creativity. Road tested on Hammer's global livestream at London’s Saatchi Gallery and his supporting set for Bicep at their recent sold out Brixton Academy date, this latest pair of effervescent disco cuts are fully designed for dancing, and a taste of many more to come from both Hammer and Italo Hiits.
“Think About Me brings together my love for high energy disco grooves, big euphoric vocals and swinging beats. Hypnotic synths drive this track along, as it straddles that sweet spot between old and new.
"Paraiso Tan is a more modern outlook on this sound, with huge pulsing sub bass, contrasting retro top lines and a thumping Linn Drum. There’s true indulgence laced throughout these tracks, and they’re all club ready!”
