Adapter debuts on Hot Creations featuring Patrick Topping remix


Continuing an already bustling 2020, that has seen him release on Relief Records and Glasgow Underground. Italian-talent Adapter makes an exciting debut on Hot Creations this November with ‘Skate Dancer’. The two-track EP includes a special remix from contemporary house heavyweight, Patrick Topping.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the release, Adapter describes how he is “a big fan of the eighties, so Skate Dancer is a mix of bass, vocals and rhythms that take me back to that era.”

Naples-based Adapter has experienced a meteoric rise in a career that has spanned multiple years. Releases on some of the genre’s most well-loved labels, including Riva Starr’s Snatch! Records and Green Velvet’s Relief, have cemented his status as one of the scene’s true heavy-hitters.

Label-head of Trick and a mainstay in modern electronic music, Patrick Topping’s accolades speak for themselves. A Mixmag cover star, DJ Mag ‘Best of British’ Award Winner as well as three-time DJ Award winner, the well-established Geordie’s latest venture is the label and party series, Trick. With sold-out showcases across the UK last year, alongside releases from the likes of Skream and Alex Virgo, there seems to be no end in sight for the Newcastle-born talent.

We’re graced with that feel-good eighties touch from the offset, as groovy female vocals shimmer amidst a pumping, 4×4 bassline on Skate Dancer. Patrick Topping’s remix takes on a darker, techno-leaning tone with hard-hitting kick-hat combos and punchy, no-nonsense percussion.

We premiere Patrick’s remix on Data Transmission for you today, check it out and grab the EP on Beatport or stream it here.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
