Drums, hiss, and grit.
Patrick Russell is a true veteran of the US underground, perhaps one of the last
unsung heroes of a now lost era in the Midwest. A genuine sonic storyteller, he
magically transforms the diaspora of acid, pure jack energy, and hints of IDM into a
deep, fluent sonic dialog that never fails to devastate both minds and dance floor.
A Detroit-bred DJ, artist, and producer active since the early 90's, Patrick has now made New York City his home. Perhaps best known as a key figure in the legendary No Way Back parties, his ability to weave intensely unique, long-format narratives has earned him critical acclaim and repeat performances at Japan’s Labyrinth festival, Berghain, Unsound, and DEMF/Movement. Patrick has also been steadily building a strong catalog of high-profile productions to compliment his increasingly varied, hypnotic, and in-demand DJ sets; his recent 3-track remix EP on The Bunker New York also marks his induction as an official resident DJ at the long-running Brooklyn party.
His consummate taste and disciplined execution have created a respect that cannot be purchased. Patrick Russell is not just a name to watch, he is someone to be experienced.
