Simon Patterson - Northern Lights

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Simon Patterson's new track Northern Lights was released just this past monday.  For the past two months it has been slowly making its way into the sets of top trance/progressive DJ's across the globe.  This massive tune opens with the driving bass/kick combo Simon has become so well-known for over the past few years which leads into a huge vocal breakdown towards the middle of the track.  In many ways this track is reminiscent of "Mood Swing," a well-known Patterson release from last year that swings wildly from dirty tech trance to a spacious melodic breakdown and then back again.  Simon is slowly building a niche for himself in the trance genre by being able to combine down tempo melodic breakdowns with heavy tech trance grooves that rock dance floors and open area arenas alike. No doubt Simon will continue to debut this new track in his sets this summer at Global Gathering and Creamfields.  Keep an eye out for him coming back to the US later this year.  In the meantime, pick up the track AND GET DOWN!
