Patrick Topping

Get beasty

At only 24 years old, Patrick Topping has crept into the Hot Creations catalogue, has been DJing at DC10 in Ibiza and has reached the top of Beatport’s Deep House charts. Among the vast amount of demos received by the Jamie Jones’ label, he managed to draw the attention of the A&R, signing now his second release (third if we count the one on Hottrax).

The freshness of this young talent offers three tracks full of energy and functionality for the dance-floor. Get Beasty provides a solid groove, with the shout of a girl, and a short sound that makes s sonic impact. Stop shows a hypnotic melody with that you will not Stop dancing to. Lastly, Strights up has more complex percussion and different effects.

Sure we will hear more from this guy, as he has signed a tune for the 2014 Defected Miami CD, and also has the full support of Pete Tong and his Essential Mix.
