1980s pop singer Samantha Fox is back on a new single “Hot Boy” produced by the great Swedish electronic producer Johan Agebjörn (the man behind Sally Shapiro). The 12” ‘80s-style extended mix is dropping on Monday and Under the Radar is pleased to have the premiere. The track is featured in the forthcoming Swedish film Videomannen, set in a video store in the 1980s and reflects this time period perfectly. As the track is taken from the movie, Fox shot a soon to be released promo video for the single with the same team who made the movie and is very much a homage to those classic videos of the ‘80s.

Agebjörn was thrilled how the track came together: “How did this track happen? Kristian Söderström, the director of the movie, asked me to make some songs with some ‘80s stars. He suggested Samantha Fox to sing ‘Hot Boy’ and I thought ‘that would never happen,’ but I didn’t want to tell him ‘there’s no use asking her’ so I sent an email via her official website. In a few days, I heard from Sam’s manager that they liked the track and that she wanted to sing on it. That felt quite surreal! Later, we all recorded a music video in Gothenburg (where this photo was taken with me on the synth).”

The mix definitely throws anyone who was alive and dancing in the ‘80s right back there!
