A low-profile, honest-to-goodness and distinctly aware DJ and producer, PAT FONTES has over 15 years of experience under his belt. His knowledge of electronic music has made him into a connoisseur of sorts. Brought up by his Portuguese mother in a Boston suburb, it is where Pat started running the now legendary Satellite Records Boston in 2001. As years pass, PAT FONTES has the honor to play some of the most upfront audible treats to many ears all over the US and with the best talents of the globe.
Pat’s style of DJing and production is a unique and healthy mixture of a variety of techno genres, sometimes going beyond into more experimental music. Being quoted by his peers as “Mr. Techno“, this mumble enciclopedia of electronic has the know-how and innovative pulse to show his true passion through his very personal style and creations.
Pat Fontes has released his music on Thoughtless (CA) and Monism. In 2010 will also drop his beautiful High Hopes track, coming out on Don’t Sleep Worldwide and remixed by DAVE DK and DAVID MOTHERSOLE. Last time you heard Fontes on Airdrop was a while ago, on the occasion of the “ill lillies” appearance on our Extraction US compilation. This makes the You Make Me EP a largely awaited release. PAT FONTES has been preparing this one for a while now, giving way to a myriad of roaring techno waves.
Featured here are two Fontes originals, “You Make Me” and “La Noche“, great assortments of key classic old-school techno elements: shuffles, relieving synths, ravaging jack-hammer grooves and half-time switches.
On the remix front, TANNER ROSS takes “You Make Me” on a ride to dubtechno grounds. Applying sandy and gritty aesthetics to his remix, Pat’s Boston neighbour excels in technique and vision with this exquisite modern remix.
Remixing “La Noche” is Mr. PAUL MAC, who has been one of Pat’s greatest inspiration since the early days and over the years. Having the man accept to remix one of the two tracks was a great excitment for us all. We find here PAUL MAC’s signature sound: spectacular crystal clear big room techno… Enjoy!
