New album 'ESTOILE NAIANT' out in February, watch a video for 'Drift' by Jane Eastlight

 

patten's first full length on Warp, 'ESTOILE NAIANT', will be released February 24th. Watch a new video for 'Drift' by Jane Eastlight ahead of two performances in NYC.

Directed by Jane Eastlight, watch 'Drift' below, via YouTube or Vimeo.

Pre-order the album from Bleep / iTunes

The new album from visionary musician & producer patten 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.

"Gloriously fearless" - The 405

"brain-meltingly good" - Dazed and Confused

"warped, woozy take on electronics" - Clash

"Strangely meditative" - The Skinny

"the album radiates masterpiece" - Playground

'ESTOILE NAIANT' sees him step out of the shadows and into full focus as a British producer of impending resonance. Where rare forces like Martin Hannett, Sade, Rammelzee, Kevin Shields, Arthur Russell, Tricky, Kim Gordon, Leigh Bowery, Kim Deal, Jim O'Rourke, Grace Jones, Björk, and Steve Reich have melded and fused an immersion in the avant garde with a sympathy for the everyday language of the radio, the club, the boombox and the walkman. patten speaks in a musical language that makes these distinctions seem fully permeable once again. 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 and extending the characteristics of the music into all avenues of contemporary culture. Soon to be found soundtracking full volume headphones, international catwalks, smoke filled basement venues, Parisian boutiques, art films and house parties alike, 'ESTOILE NAIANT' is a strangely wide-ranging work. 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, or brand new research in cognitive science, patten's world is without boundaries or genre, and instead is one which has the lysergic experience of what it is to be a living breathing human, here, now, today at its core.
