Patten is a London-based experimental duo known for their awkward experimentation of electronic music. Their new remix compilation RE-EDITS Vol. 2 is jam-packed full of reworks from Boards of Canada (stream ‘REEDIT 70’ above), Cocteau Twins, Cypress Hill, even Rihanna. Each track gets its own music video as well.
Futuristic, chaotic, next-level — Patten’s goal seems to want to be or smash together the avante-garde.
“Stones Throw began to develop it’s roster across the musical board with the traditional boom bap styles of Madlib, Lootpack to the obscure sounds of Gary Wilson and Koushik. When you bought or received a Stones Throw 12′ or album, you never knew what you were going to get. And this made record shopping and digging fun again.”
