Hailing from Manila, Toppings (aka Jake Camacho) has emerged as a fresh new face in the Singapore music scene.
With a background in music history, and having played a number of instruments from a young age, his lifelong exposure to diverse musical traditions shines through in his eclectic approach to DJing.
As co-founder and resident selector of Singapore-based party collective Ice Cream Sundays, Toppings has honed his craft playing to sweaty crowds around the city, pushing a sound that pairs jazzy instrumentation and rollicking percussion with the digitized textures of modern dance music. Rooted in the genres of deep, soulful, and lo-fi house to funk and disco, each of his sets delivers a potent blend of dance floor nostalgia, playful experimentation, and — at times — unbridled optimism.
Though his sound continues to evolve, he vows never to forget the power of a good horn section. The road ahead looks exciting for the young DJ.
