First Listen: Alan Fitzpatrick – ‘Falling Down’ (Hotflush)

A showstopping turn from one of modern Techno’s biggest crowd pleasers.

A fixture on Adam Beyer’s hugely popular Drumcode for over half a decade, Southampton’s Alan Fitzpatrick is a marquee name in the world of Techno. Pairing pummeling grooves with infectious lead lines, cute melodies and uplifting arpreggios, Fitzpatrick has secured a reputation as a producer of anthems – with this status finding him consistently in hot demand at clubs around the continent. Set to be released on the cusp of summer, Fitzpatrick’s latest three tracker ‘Falling Down’ looks to see him dominating dancefloors once again over the coming months.

A few years ago the pairing of Fitzpatrick with Paul ‘Scuba’ Rose’s Hotflush may have seemed somewhat unlikely, although recently the label’s inclination for big room sounds and the artist’s flair for musicality appear to have converged. The result of this musical perfect storm is his new his EP ‘Falling Down”s title track -available to stream in full below. Rhythmically a little softer than Fitzpatrick’s Drumcode work, this one is all about the brazen stylings of the synth part – ruggedly scaling the heights of euphoria. Backed with another Fitzpatrick original in the shape of ‘Vanishing’ and a remix of the lead track from newcomer Auden – the EP is out next Monday 4th May.

‘Falling Down’ is out on Hotflush 4th May, pre-order it here.
