#New #Music – ‘Drift’ from @patttten – upcoming album “ESTOILE NAIANT” @WarpRecords
From the release:
On February 25th, Warp Records will release ESTOILE NAIANT, the new album from visionary musician and producer patten. This LP forms a key turning point in patten’s catalogue, connecting the dots between early self-released CDRs of delicately interlocking instrumentals, with the highly textured and detailed beat-led compositions explored on 2013’s surprise EOLIAN INSTATE EP. The new full-length sees him step out of the shadows and into full focus, melding the avant garde with a sympathy for the everyday language of the radio or the club. This clarity of approach and distinctive melodic and rhythmic sensibility sees a psychedelically-tinged pop characteristic shine through his unique forward-thinking sonics.
The ongoing visual collaborations with artist Jane Eastlight further express this generous, outward-reaching, and satisfyingly mind-altering approach, with sleeve artwork, videos and even apparel developing, extending the characteristics of the music into all avenues of contemporary culture. patten’s world is without boundaries or genre.
