Described by leading dance blog 'Dancing Astronaut' as an artist with the talent and fibre to dominate the industry, Patrick Hagenaar is one of the talented group of fast-rising DJ/producers hailing from Holland. Patrick served his DJ apprenticeship at some of London’s key venues, which led him to a 5-year long residency at Ministry of Sound; playing in over 40 countries and building a huge following along the way.
Both his productions and DJ sets are inspired by a mix of the Dutch house sounds from his homeland; with a UK flavoured twist of hi octane hooks and devastating melodies. His first release, (‘What Would We Do’, by Hagenaar & Albrecht), went to the top of the charts across all major download stores and a string of big releases on labels like Big Beat, Spinnin', Universal and EMI followed.
‘Another Chance’ was the toast of the dance music press and more recently, Patrick’s solo work saw:
• ‘L.O.V.E’ hit the Beatport Top 10
• DMC Buzz chart #1 ‘You got Me’ receive plays from David Guetta, Tiesto & BBC Radio 1
