Jamie Jones has turned the heat up even further with the launch of his new label Hot Trax. A subsidiary to the mighty Hot Creations, it focuses on a more ‘underground dancefloor orientated aesthetic’ with the first release from Jamie himself naturally flying off the shelves. The second output sees newcomer Patrick Topping showcase his undeniable talent with a highly impressive debut release and double dance floor hitter, ‘Walk On’.
Striking hard with a heavy bass and deep grumbling undertones, title track ‘Walk On’ is a guaranteed club bomb. Progressing with high-pitched melodic keys that add a new dimension, the track surges forward with relentless rhythms and intoxicating energy.
Another killer DJ weapon, ‘What Do You Mean’ is packed to the brim with rolling groove and dance floor appeal. Spacey synths zap through the layers, as the thundering bass sweeps into the mix, skillfully withdrawn at points throughout the track, only to be heavily dropped for maximum dance floor effect.
On a continuous quest for unearthing new talent, Jamie Jones ventured north to discover the 24 year old Patrick Topping who has built a DJ career centered from playing at his popular night in Newcastle, Motion. With his unreleased tracks already garnering support from heavyweights Franck Roger, Richy Ahmed, Darius Syrossian and Jamie himself, it was only a matter of time before his name started to emerge into the limelight. Keep an eye out for upcoming music in the pipeline on the mighty Hot Creations.
Walk On E.P has been gathering serious support, including Pete Tong playing the tracks two weeks in a row on his legendary BBC Radio 1 show.
