Andrey Plekhanov aka HoT is a DJ and Producer hailing from the western Russian city of Tula.
HoT originally started out in the world of production back in 1997 and by the year 2000 he was getting to grips with the techniques that would later take him on to become a household name in the worldwide Ragga Jungle movement.
It wouldn't be until the mid 00's that he would have his first notable track signing when his track 'Gas-Jet' was selected to be featured on the various artists mix cd 'Tonz Of Drumz Vol.4 - Mixed by DJK'. From this, his name rose to further notoriety when he gained regular support on DJ Gvozd's 'Pirate Station' show St. Petersburg's 'Record Radio' station and later releasing on the 'Pirate Station Records' label.
A few years passed before HoT got his truly big break when JungleXpeditions Records head honcho and true Ragga Jungle ambassador RCola signed 'Policeman & Soldiers' to his Canadian based imprint for his first outing on Vinyl, from there it was plain sailing as he continued with a string of strong releases on respected labels such as Run Tingz Recordings, Moonshine Recordings, Lion Heart Recordings, RIQ Records, Mashed Youth as well as having no less than 10 tracks out on his own digital imprint: Hot Sound Records.
The future continues to look bright for HoT as he has just been announced as the latest signing to Bristol UK based Jungle Clone Records.
Look out for plenty of fresh forthcoming material!
