The last time I checked in with DJ Topgun was at his release party for his album called “RAGER.” The compilation record features artists he’s built friendly relationships within his native Ohio, like Freshie or 55 Bagz, or nationally with rappers like Lil Xan who he went on the “Xanarchy” tour with as the DJ. At One Up Skate Shop in Pittsburgh’s South Side, the party was as advertised, a lit rage with pizza, beer and mosh pits, mosh pits are becoming Topgun’s signature. He knows how to ignite the crowd with proper hip-hop, but also at the party, Topgun flexed the range in his musical catalog. He played a 1987 true house tune called “Move Your Body” by Marshall Jefferson. I said, “What! Okay Topgun!” He took a risk that must’ve been the skater in him. DJ Topgun should trust his instincts all the time because they pay off, especially here as he releases a 45-minute house mix, which he credits DJ RB (of Make Sure You Have Fun events) for hyping him up to take this leap. As a supporter, be proud of Topgun’s talent and where he’s pushed his craft. Run his “Fried House Mix” below.
