This break from Warp, enables Patten to broadcast a singular visions across music, design and visuals, entirely on his own terms. ‘FLEX‘ will not receive the vinyl treatment, instead it will be presented in a variety of formats, including a custom perfume, a series of skateboard decks and limited edition apparel.
The 14 track album is said to “unlock a portal into an ultramodern potent strain of shape shifting, prismatic club music. Splicing together arrays of mutated sonics, rhythms and bassweight into hallucinogenic hybrids of footwork, trap, UK garage, grime, hip-hop and techno.”
Patten will debut his new AV live show in London at Corsica Studios on 3 October, featuring an array of self-curated DJs, producers and video artists. Including DJ sets from Weirdcore and Flora Yin-Wong, performances by Mary Hurrell and Lucinda Chua, and films by artists including Sam Rolfes, Lawrence Lek, Sung Tieu, Marianna Simnett, Mark Leckey, David Blandy & Larry Achiampong.
‘FLEX’ is out now in digital format. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
