Visionary London-based producer patten is renowned for his hi-tech immersive AV shows and cross-platform projects, tracing a boundary-irreverent path through design, installation, film, programming, music, live performance, and publishing.
Recent work of the mysterious artist includes AV shows at the ICA and Tate Modern in London, ongoing art direction for Dan Snaith’s Daphni albums, simultaneous 3049 installations at London’s Tenderpixel and Amsterdam’s Sonic Acts, live tour visuals for LA’s The Glitch Mob and establishing the 555-5555 web forum following his creative agency of the same name.
patten’s new album unlocks a portal into an ultramodern potent strain of shape shifting, prismatic club music. Splicing together arrays of mutated sonics, rhythms and bassweight into hallucinogenic hybrids of footwork, trap, UK garage, grime, hip-hop and techno, his alchemist productions vibrate with sonics to make sound systems weep.
With a brand new mind-melting dancefloor-focused live AV show, patten continues pushing the boundaries and rules of modern dance music. The show features a custom system of LED strobes, lasers, HD video projections and dense smoke, creating an immersive environment. Here, intense hyper-programmed lighting and video meet the liquid metal sonic constructions of vocal micro-samples, HD synth patches, scuffed textures, and body-tuned rhythms.
