- Taking Libz EP
Hot Creations | 15.07.2016
Patrick Topping returns to Hot Creations with his ‘Taking Libz EP’ and demonstrates why his reputation carries such weight with three special tracks that act as a masterclass in how to create music that will consume dance floors.
First up is ‘Brayed’ which takes the listener on a loopy and enriching journey, whilst ‘Howk’ is a classic foot-to-the-floor number. Concluding the EP is ‘Taking Libz’, the title track that was recently included in Steve Lawler’s BBC Essential Mix and sees Topping firmly hold onto his crown with this unstoppable cut.
“The EP has been in talks for months and has had many incarnations, but I’m very excited about these 3 tracks that we eventually went with. Hopefully it’s been worth the wait”. Patrick Topping
Last year saw Topping snatch the number one spot on Beatport’s chart for the fifth time and i-D Magazine described his style as “that is characterised by punchy, chugging baselines that have become weapons in the sets of many a DJ.” Started his career DJing at the club night Motion in Newcastle, he was quickly snapped up by Jamie Jones, label manager of Hot Creations. Releases on the label and a residency at Paradise DC10 in Ibiza soon followed and 2014 saw him release ‘Get Beasty’, ‘Forget’ and ‘Voicemail’ featuring Green Velvet and concluded with a hattrick of awards including winning the DJ Mag Best Newcomer, Track Of The Season and Best Tune awards in their Best of British Awards.
