On February 24th, Warp Records will release ESTOILE NAIANT, the new album from visionary musician & 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 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, Bjork, 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, 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.
