Fresh off a BBC Radio 1 Hottest Record feature with his 2024 "Take Me Away," Lewis Taylor has been a core part of the Trick family, appearing on the label's 2023 "Lethal Bangers Vol. 1" V/A and lineups at festivals such as Creamfields and WeAreFestvl. The Newcastle talent returns with his debut solo EP on Topping's imprint, "Kickin' In The Beat."

Both tracks perfectly represent where I want to take my sound going forward. I am heavily inspired by the 90s house and love that a lot of producers and labels have brought that sound back to the forefront of dance music in recent years. Trick has been a key player in doing this, so I am honoured to have it as a platform to share these two tracks with the world!

Up first is the vibrant "Kickin' In The Beat," a high-speed and compelling garage-house groove with shuffling drums and bouncing bass. The clipped vocal loops provide that irresistible hook with a 90s feel, erupting into a top line that is destined to do damage. "Shake It Up" is another immediately catchy groove with tight, dusty drums and a punchy low end. Beyond the physical appeal, a retro bassline and subtle garage skip all help elevate it to the next level.
