The Lab LDN is our weekly office rave up powered by Void Acoustics where we live stream some of the biggest and best names in dance music from genres across the board. 2014 has seen us bring the likes of Black Coffee, Art Department, Pete Tong and loads more and we round off the year on Wednesday with the killer Hot Creations combination of Richy Ahmed, Patrick Topping and wAFF.
Richy Ahmed originally started as an A&R for the label and resident for Jamie Jones' Paradise party. A string or killer releases including 'Sneaky Acid' and 'The Drums' coupled with quality sets at DC10, Glastonbury, Panorama Bar and Bestival have helped shaped the Geordie into one of the most sought-after DJs on the circuit.
Fellow Geordie Patrick Topping is another Hot Creations regular who's well and truly smashed it on all fronts in the past year. One of our breakout DJs of Ibiza, his track 'Forget' was played in pretty much every major club on the island. He followed up this fine work with a brilliant collaboration with Green Velvet titled 'Voicemail' and further showed he's certainly no flash-in-the-pan act.
Last but by no means least is wAFF. One of the freshest talents to have emerged from the UK in recent years, his take on house and techno is as classy as we've heard in a long time. Smashers such as 'Jo Johnson' and 'Rainbows' (both on Hot Creations) have catapulted him into the record bags of the likes of Loco Dice, Sven Väth and Luciano.
This week's Lab kicks of at 4.30 GMT on Wednesday and you can tune in below or on MixmagTV.
