The new album from visionary musician and producer patten forms a key turning point in his catalogue - his first full-length for Warp following the highly textured and detailed beat-led compositions explored on 2013's surprise 'EOLIAN INSTATE' EP. The game-changing 'ESTOILE NAIANT' album sees him step out of the shadows and into full focus as a British producer of impending resonance, fusing myriad forms in his otherworldly style. patten has already played in front of thousands at the Warp x Tate event at Tate Britain in December 2013, soon after his sold-out London EP launch, with his US debut shows in NYC earlier this year. 2014 has so far seen him tearing up a 285 Kent closing party, a sold-out cavernous museum auditorium in Madrid, and everything in between. His debut Japanese shows in Osaka and Tokyo are coming soon.
'ESTOILE NAIANT' is a compelling and strangely wide-ranging work which is opening new worlds up to listeners across the globe since its release. Informed equally by Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges's evocative maze-like short stories, late nights at early FWD events, the open tunings of Sonic Youth's chiming guitars, and brand new research in cognitive science, patten's world is without boundaries or genre.
