Pat Lok is a young dj/producer out of Vancouver. Over the last 11 years Pat has worked alongside big name dj’s like Fred Falke, Breakbot and The Twelves (among others) and has just recently released his first EP-“No Shame” on french label On The Fruit Records. It is an epic release with ridiculous originals and incredible remixes. Is it just me or is the EP replacing the LP as a viable length to absorb in an ADD world? Whatever the reason, there are alot of stellar Ep’s emerging lately and Pat Lok -No Shame is at the top of that list. Enjoy.
Yes.From the very start this song has you moving, the accents and grooving bassline, the whispering computerized vocals (which manage to avoid seeming played out or overdone), the 80’s drum fills that we love…It’s all so good. It’s dreamy, it is funky, and most of all it is sexy and it’s fun to dance to. At 3:30 when the song is fully formed, the Airy, inviting refrain has overtaken you and you are lost. Sweet Jam.
L.A’s own Goldroom take this jam off into a darker more moody soundscape while keeping it groovy. There is a very thoughtful feeling to this track. Mature and sexy.This is one of those tracks that just takes you away on the dancefloor. With Winter looming and thoughts turning to more introspective place, this song captures that emotional space.Beautiful remix.
The sick fade-in.This is a decidedly good-times cut.Here’s the set up, it is the middle of the night, the party is packed with beautiful girls,your closest friends are all around, I don’t know about “lucky” but you are definitely getting laid tonight. It’s that feeling, like you can’t lose, like everything is just exactly as it is supposed to be. A huge smile on your face, collecting memories from a night that you will never forget, yeah…Yes Game.Great track.
This is one of those jams that you soul clap along with.Bit Funk takes his time to establish a rock solid groove. Enter: mellow vibes, disco love, cut up vocals..at 3:20 when it drops… it’s delicious. A funky, understated “thriller” type guitar riff, a hovering synth backdrop…this track has a classic type old school feel.If you aren’t feeling this one you are probably on the wrong blog.Another bomb Bit Funk production. Brilliant.
Like I said before, “life moves pretty fast”….I mean, The Pat lok No Shame Ep is awesome. Check it out and Spend a couple bucks to support good tunes. With remixes by OHYEAH! and Volta Bureau plus all three joints included herein,this is a release worth grabbing. Support good music.
