Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Tease Magnet
Patrick Topping
Hot Creations
This comes from a guy who crashed onto the scene a few years ago, due to his brilliant bass lines and crunchy high hats. He really summed up the sound of the summer of 2014 and he's been going from strength to strength ever since. I've played with him a number of times and after a fantastic 2016 he's become a real stalwart for the Paradise and Hot Creations crew. This is from his forthcoming mix CD for the label; Newcastle's Mr. Patrick Topping is back with Tease Magnet.  This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 34:10 mins here.
