To say 2014 was a massive year for Patrick Topping, would be an understatement. 3 Beatport number 1’s in the Tech-House chart with ‘Get Beasty’, ‘Forget’ and ‘Voicemail’, a residency at DC10 for Paradise and two DJ Awards for Newcomer DJ and Track Of The Season for ‘Forget’.

Fast rising star and favourite in the Hot Creations camp, Patrick Topping is back with another smash hit, with ‘Voicemail’, a collaboration with the legendary Green Velvet aka Cajmere, on Relief Records. Hot on the heels of ‘Forget’ which also reached the no1 spot on the Beatport Tech House chart. Taken from the ‘Boxed Off’ EP, which features three dance floor bombs, just as we’ve come to expect from this talented youngster, all with that signature Patrick Topping sound, yet each completely unique. This comes quickly after his ‘Get Beasty’ EP released in February this year, which received widespread acclaim. The title track ‘Get Beasty’ also reached number 1 and held the top spot for 3 weeks!

At 25 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. Last year he made his Ibiza debut, at no less than DC10 for Paradise and has secured a residency there this summer. Patrick continues to make his name heard on the international stage with Pulse Radio naming him One To Watch in 2014 and having featured on Pete Tong’s Future Stars.

Patrick impressed us all with his highly praised debut EP ‘Walk On’, which was released on Hot Trax in 2013, followed soon after by the even more successful ‘Any Amounts’ EP also on Hot Creations. His productions have an effortless swagger when it comes to working the dancefloor, knowing exactly how to work a crowd and making a name for himself with his extremely infectious basslines and dancefloor weapons.

Through the old-fashioned demos route, Newcastle based Patrick Topping caught the attention of the Hot Creations crew as they recognised his undeniable talent and Patrick’s innate ability to craft a banging record.

In popular demand, 2014 was a huge year for Patrick. With tracks being championed by Pete Tong and Annie Mac on their legendary BBC radio 1 shows, plus one of the busiest touring schedules in the underground, taking in tours of Australia, United States and South America. There shows no signs of letting up either, with another release on his home label Hot Creations in the pipeline, as well as a remix of Cuartero & wAFF about to drop on Matthias Tanzmann’s highly respected Moon Harbour label.
