Brooklyn-based sound artist Max Ravitz is best known under the alias Patricia, a moniker inaugurated in 2013 with the ‘Body Issues‘ LP and cemented since then through a series of releases spread across Opal Tapes, L.I.E.S, Sleeperhold Publications and Spectral Sound, an offshoot of Ghostly International. After the release of ‘Several Shades of The Same Colour‘ last year – a well-received collection of mournful, tape-warped electro spread across 3 LPs that offered the most definitive statement of his distinctive sound yet, Ravitz has just announced the release of a new EP due out at the end of August.
‘Free Lunch‘ is made up of five “energetic electro tracks that show a shift from the familiar hazy murkiness to a more present sound.. more layered melodies, acid grooves and luscious pointillism.” The record is being released through Nona Records, a Czech imprint that first emerged in late 2016 with releases from Hanz Tisch and Kadaver. Nona have shared an exclusive cut from the record with us for you to hear: ‘Consumer Recreation Services‘, which ratchets up the tension with analogue arpeggios before progressing into a full-blown synth workout that bears the signature warp and grain of Patricia’s modular rig. Listen below.
Free Lunch EP is released via Nona Records on 30th August.
