Kiz Pattison is an emerging artist who has been on the radar for sometime with a collective amount of productions that have been raising the eyebrows of industry favs. This Birmingham based artist has had a careful eye our beloved club circuit for many years from the early foundations of house to the rave scene and the current formats of electronic music. He’s already provided great touches to Blue Amazon’s underground classic Four Seasons which appeared on Ian Ossia Interpretations album release. Recently releases have also landed on labels such as Compatible Music, Pro B Tech show case album, Convert as well as South American label Groove Night.
Sound wise his sound and productions have the backbone of progressive house but have gently grown more to the new minimal techno sound, which is favoured by many. There’s a clean sound to his productions with very hypnotic undertones that absorb you the more you listen and the title Simplistic Confusion is very evident of that. This is not about the big fat chunky techno rhythms its more about a deep physiological transient build that keeps the momentum flowing without you knowing where you are in the track.
The first of the remixes we are very proud to say are from the world renowned Pako & Frederik. Pako & Frederik have been key figures in the electronic world since the 90’s, championed by all the big DJs we have been treated to classics titles such as Western Approaches & the awesome Seaside Atmosphere with Stef. Their sound has always been more tuned to progressive but here we have a more techno influence rework with throbbing bass, effected percussion whilst including touches of there identity with submerged building atmospheres.
Next is a remix from another emerging talent and DJ from the north Jonny Burg. Jonny Burg is becoming a popular figure on the DJ circuit including his association with the Leeds based event outfit Hush Hush. Jonny mix follows suit with the original to a degree with the hypnotic edge, gently building with percussive elements, dark techno esque stabs and transient elements. Once again this isn’t about a pounding rhythm is more intricate fuelled depth.
