Hot Creations scoop another Beatport number one courtesy of their latest Geordie success story.

Since his debut for Hot Creation’s sub label Hottrax back in 2013, Patrick Topping is one of the label’s biggest success stories. The Geordie lad's prowess for creating peak time tech house bangers is clear on his latest EP for the label ‘Be Sharp Say Nowt.’

Not veering too far from a tried and tested formula of raw hi hats, thunderous bassline and catchy vocals, Topping works in a vocal from an infectious wailing gospel singer in full flow.

Like most of Topping’s hit tracks, simplicity is key. The straight up house vibe is what works best on Topping’s dancefloor and with the track firing in at number one in the Beatport Top 10, this is likely to finish December as one of the 2017’s biggest tracks.

The EP’s second track, ‘Track Change’ takes a more experimental approach using an 80s digital synth style arpeggio to create a quirky dancefloor moment that’s reminiscent of the kind of synth lines that characterised early electro and hip hop.

Ibiza Voice Score: 6/10
