LABELS: EXPLOITED / RITTER BUTZKE STUDIO / PERCUSA / GREELPOUND
Patryk was born near Berlin in the middle of the 80s and started early to develop a deep relationship to music.
He has always felt very close to electronic music. But it was not before his 18th birthday that the passion grew so strong that he tried his own productions.
In the beginning using LoFi equipment he tried to transfer music of any kind into his very own productions. Back then he has been strongly influenced by the Big Beat scene in England and Vienna Scientists like Kruder & Dorfmeister.
He tried out different styles until he discovered the house scene. He decided to get his own equipment and to share the music that he admires so much with others.
Soon he developed an affection for Deep and French house. Bit by bit the minimalistic sounds hit him and he worked full of enthusiasm on his first minimalistic productions.
His tracks are strongly influenced by the flourishing and always self-reinventing Berlin night life.
Artists like „Loco Dice“, „Seuil“, „Boris Werner“, „Lauhaus“ and „Sascha Dive“ are currently among those that influence him most.
But also Nu Jazz, Easy Listening und Soul can be found occasionally in his music.
Hello Patryk! How Are You? What do you have scheduled for today?
Hey guys, I´m fine…
Today I met some people of my agency in Berlin…we talked about new projects and past gigs.
Please tell us a bit about your latest releases!
It´s been a while since I released my latest EP´s. There were released on Ritter Butzke Studio and Keno Records and both were very successful in my opinion. The B side of my I GOT SOUL EP on Keno Records went on #1 at Beatport Minimal Top 100 and the B side of my ADDICTED TO THE VIBE EP on Ritter Butzke Studio was played by lots of great artists. It seems so that my B sides are more successful than my A sides 😉
Which release was the one who gave you the most attention so far?
That´s a tricky question. There were so much good releases in the past months. But all released tunes on Overall Music which is running by Javier Carballo & Hanfry Martinez, were really great – I like that kind of music and I played it a lot last year.
Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases! Is there anything special planned for 2015?
Next EP will be released on Ritter Butzke Studio. I like the Record label and the guys a lot and the do great work. More info soon…
As you are touring a lot, please tell us something about your experience around the globe. What is your favourite city or country and why?
First of all I like my home city and for me Potsdam the def the place to be. But the most excited city I have been was Mexico City. I`ve never seen such a big and awesome city and country as well. I met there such great people and I was so impressed.
What was your funniest or craziest experience while touring?
I don´t know…somebody asked me while I´m playing if I can play some tunes of ABBA. I was shocked and amused at the same time.
You are working very close with 2 Berlin massive scene labels, Ritter Butzke Studio and Well Done!. What does these collabs mean to you?
I love both. I did a remix for Well Done Music on their first release in 2012 and they have their own booking agency where I´m a member. And since 2012 I´m very close to the guys of Ritter Butzke especially Mario Aureo and Kristian from Kuriose Naturale. Mario asked me if I would do the first release of their upcoming record label Ritter Butzke Studio and I said yes…so that was the beginning of our relationship and I´m still in love with it…
What were your TOP 5 gigs in 2014?
All gigs at Ritter Butzke in Berlin are very excited and I love to play there. Every time it is a special experience. Otherwise my gigs in Kiev and every time in Switzerland are great…tricky to pick some out.
What are your top 5 tracks that are really working the dance floor in your sets at the moment?
