Patrick Topping goes in with his ‘Baddie’ EP with a release on Repopulate Mars.
What a last twenty-four months it has been for Patrick Topping as he continues to carve out a solid reputation for himself as one of the solid players within the underground House scene, and for his next journey, he has landed on Lee Foss’ label Repopulate Mars with the three track ‘Baddie’ EP which is going in hard in the clubs.
Repopulate Mars was a newly launched label by the one and only Lee Foss who released the first EP himself to kick off the journey. Now Patrick Topping is the second artist to land on the label, with the three track ‘Baddie’ EP that sums up the quality and the reputation which the Geordie lad has developed over the last few months, as he continues to grow his name on the club and festival circuit, as well as the scene as a whole.
The first track on the EP comes in the form of the title track and this truly sets the tone for what is to be delivered with the rest of the tracks. ‘Baddie’ goes in with the deep, futuristic synth led melody which runs through the track, while the bass line rumbles alongside to give the track that added power and added energy, allowing the listener to open up to the infectious nature of the track. It is all about those intricate sounds which have been cut, inserted, layered and then filtered in alongside each other to provide a really sketchy feeling to the track, with that solid bass line keeping proceedings rumbling along.
The second track is in the form of ‘Majestic’ and it goes for that more solid House vibe, with the deep soothing bass line taking command of the track and really going in on the listener, reeling them in to the deeper sounds and completely controlling them. Add this to those sketchy synth sounds which have been paired off with that solid bass line, as well as the layers of higher pitched synths, and you have your a deep underground dance floor groover. The last track on the EP lands with ‘Captivate’ and this is one of the firm favourites in my eyes, with those futuristic synth layers building up to the almighty deep drop and the whole atmosphere surrounding this one is rather captivating, especially with those vocals which Patrick Topping has added in. What an EP.
