The press info on this advises not to bother googling Patricia. Two reasons: one you could wind up on some Patricia Routledge sitcom and  two they suggest that Patricia's music really should be heard on vinyl, in a real place either on vinyl or in a club. Not on a bloody computer! There are three original tracks on this EP and a remix. Its low end bass music, percussive techno with wierd almost sub bass voice samples. Dark and dank acidy squiggles and lots of 808 rhythms.  This will appeal to fans of vintage midwestern techno and some of Aphex Twins more acidy outings. Its minimal stuff but entertaining. The remix comes from Ghostly stalwart Tadd Mullinix's JTC moniker.

Side Piece EP by Patricia

Here's some hard-edged, slightly acidy techno business from Patricia. I'm not sure what his name is but I do know that he's a man from Chicago living in Brooklyn, and in 'Side Piece' he's made a pretty strong EP of modern, percussive techno with subtle little melodic bumps and wet acid squiggles woven into intricate, skittish beats driven by aggressive, minimal bass and merciless 808.

JTC turns up to do a remix of the lead track at the end, which is pretty cool, sculpting those hard and aggressive drum sounds into an hypnotic loop and introducing some twinkly xylophone-synth action and bright trebly melodies that bring the heads-down bassy intricacy of the original into a new and more hopeful place. Strong EP all round though, I like this guy's style.
