More Details

Described by leading dance blog 'Dancing Astronaut' as an artist with the talent and fibre to dominate 2014, Patrick Hagenaar is one of the talented group of fast-rising DJ/producers hailing from Holland.

His musical output, signature love of bold clothing and pop art, plus interactive themed parties collectively form Colour Code, Patrick’s fast rising lifestyle brand for those who want to live their lives in full colour.

Patrick served his DJ apprenticeship at some of London’s key venues, meaning his music is inspired by a mix of the big room Dutch house sounds from his homeland, with a UK flavoured twist of hi octane hooks and devastating melodies.

His first release, in 2008 (‘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 Atlantic/Big Beat, Spinnin', Hed Kandi, EMI and Ministry of Sound followed.

2010’s ‘I Won’t Let You Down’ was the toast of the dance music press and more recently, Patrick’s solo work saw:

• ‘L.O.V.E’ hit the Top 10 on Beatport and Nr2 spot in the UK club chart.
• ‘Another Chance’ received over 200k hits on YouTube within a week
• DMC Buzz chart Nr1 ‘You got Me’ received support from David Guetta, Tiesto & BBC Radio 1
• ‘My Love’ & 'Live For the Moment' on his own imprint ‘Colour code Music’ have been firm favourites with Nicky Romero, Tiesto & BBC Radio 1.

He’s remixed Nr1 records for Martin Solveig, HAIM, Jason Derulo, Professor Green, Ke$ha and Kylie Minogue, with his remixes of Rudimental’s ‘Feel The Love’ and ‘Waiting All Night’ scoring over 100 plays on BBC Radio 1.

With continuous support from the biggest names in dance music like Tiesto, David Guetta & Nicky Romero and being a key resident for Ministry of Sound for over 4 years, Patrick has fans across all continents.

His solid foundation and that unwavering positive attitude ensure the dancefloors of the world are in for a treat. Watch this Dutchman fly!
