The Lighthouse Project Presents: Patrick Topping
Saturday, 11 October, 2014 - 22:00
Sin City, Swansea
We kick off the winter months in monumental fashion, bringing one of the world’s hottest, fastest-growing, innovative and talented house music stars to Swansea. His name has been in our minds since the idea of the night formulated over a year ago and it is with great pleasure we announce we will be bringing Patrick Topping to The Lighthouse Project.
Fast rising star and favourite in the Hot Creations camp, Patrick Topping’s smash hit, ‘Forget’ reached the no1 spot on Beatport Tech House chart and stayed there for over 10 weeks this summer. 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 hot on the heels of 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.
In popular demand, 2014 looks set to be a huge year for Patrick. With tracks being championed by Pete Tong on his legendary BBC radio 1 show, alongside releases on his home label Hot Creations, he has already released ‘Holiday’ on Defected and remixed Steve Lawler on his VIVa Music label. Look out for more remixes on other well-respected labels, including Yousef on Circus Recordings and Sidney Charles on Avotre.
We have been lucky enough to have Sin City as a venue for our last few events and look forward to bringing the house down in the newly refurbished version. We will have the latest and greatest in house and techno slamming across two floors and if you want a night with incredible sound and lighting, look no further than this one. Big up 'Sink' for letting us take over their weekly event and we look forward to welcoming lots of fresh, new student faces to our world.
As well the main event, we will have our resident DJ’s and pals of the LHP making it the night that it is. The full line-up of supporting acts is to be confirmed so keep your eyes peeled for that one.
