Artist of the week

Visionary London-based producer patten is renowned for hi-tech immersive AV shows and cross-platform projects, tracing a path through design, installation, film, programming, music, live performance, and publishing. Their recent work includes AV shows at the ICA and Tate Modern in London, ongoing art direction for Dan Snaith’s Daphni alias, simultaneous ‘3049’ art installations at London and Amsterdam, live tour visuals for LA’s The Glitch Mob and establishing the 555-5555 web forum following their creative agency of the same name.

Their 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, their alchemical productions vibrate with sonics to make soundsystems weep.

A brand new mind-melting dancefloor-focused FLEX live AV show, features a custom system of LED strobes, lasers, HD video projections and dense smoke, creating an immersive environment where intense hyperprogrammed lighting and video meets the liquid metal sonic constructions of vocal microsamples, HD synth patches, scuffed textures, body-tuned rhythms and fx as building blocks for an alchemical, propulsive future vision.

On a similar tip, patten’s new hypermodern DJ sets explore the outer edges of new global dance musics, dialling through heavyweight club sounds and styles with a mind-bending, genre-agnostic, prismatic energy.
