Ozmozis and Simon Patterson announce Open Up 100 with special guest, John Askew on Wednesday, December 31 at RED Nightclub.
UK native, Simon Patterson returns to Toronto to celebrate the 100th episode of his successful podcast, Open Up, which debuted in January 2013. He is a master craftsman of sharp bass lines and melancholic melodies, creating the best in Trance and Techno. Patterson’s astonishing production catalogue frames several Beatport #1s with reputable tracks like ‘The One’, ‘Brush Strokes’, ‘Northern Lights’, and ‘Bulldozer’. With a residency show on BBC Radio 1 and headlining international festivals such as ASOT, Electric Daisy Carnival, Global Gathering, etc, Patterson pioneers a new cutting edge sound and clubbing experience that attracts the masses.
Alongside Patterson is electronic music pioneer, John Askew. Tracing his sound back to 1994 as an old school rave DJ, Askew paved the way for the future of Tech Trance. Vellum, his first release in 2001, shares a journey of acid beats and uplifting melodies, which distinguishes his sound from everyone else.
Throughout the years, Askew has resided and performed at some of the biggest clubs and events in the world, from Ministry of Sound, Slinky, God’s Kitchen, and many more. He has worked on countless releases with his own labels, Discover, and newest, Kompressed. “The Witch”, “Bastard”, and “Fade to Black”, and “Torture Chamber” have been in staples in Tech Trance sets and will continue to pound the speakers in clubs worldwide.
