HOTC042 Patrick Topping - Strights Up by Hot Creations published on 2014/01/05 07:12:04 +0000 Fast rising star and favourite in the Hot Creations camp, Patrick Topping is back with another outstanding release after his highly successful debut EP was released on Hot Trax earlier this year, followed soon after by the even more successful ‘Any Amounts’ EP on Hot Creations. Knowing exactly how to work a crowd and making a name for himself with his extremely infectious basslines he delivers another release filled with dancefloor bombs. Melodic keys, trippy FX, intricate percussions and high energy build ups that turn into powerful drops make these three essential DJ weapons that are certain to dominate the dancefloor at peak time. Through the oldfashioned demos route, Northerner Patrick Topping caught the attention of the Hot Creations camp as they recognised his undeniable talent. Impressing us all with his debut EP ‘Walk On’, Patrick made it to no.5 in the Beatport Deep House chart, with his tracks being championed by Pete Tong on his legendary BBC radio 1 show. His next EP ‘Any Amounts’ was one of the biggest releases of the year for Hot Creations with all tracks making it in the top 10 in the tech house charts and staying there for weeks. At 24 years old, Patrick first built a DJ career around playing at his own popular club night in Newcastle (Motion), where he booked and played alongside some of the biggest names in the business. This year he made his Ibiza debut, at no less than DC10 for Paradise in July and continues to make his name heard on the international stage with plenty of gigs lined up. Things look set to be big for Patrick next year with a track signed to the Defected Miami CD coming early next year and remixes on the way for Circus Recordings and Resonance Records.
