"The new album from visionary musician & producer patten forms a key turning point in patten's catalogue, connecting the dots between early self-released CDRs of delicately interlocking instrumentals, with the highly textured and detailed beat-led compositions explored on 2013's surprise "EOLIAN INSTATE' EP. "ESTOILE NAIANT" sees him step out of the shadows and into full focus as a British producer of impending resonance. Where rare forces like Martin Hannett, Sade, Rammelzee, Kevin Shields, Arthur Russell, Tricky, Kim Gordon, Leigh Bowery, Kim Deal, Jim O'Rourke, Grace Jones, Björk, and Steve Reich have melded and fused an immersion in the avant garde with a sympathy for the everyday language of the radio, the club, the boombox and the walkman. patten speaks in a musical language that makes these distinctions seem fully permeable once again. This clarity of approach and distinctive melodic and rhythmic sensibility sees a psychedelically-tinged pop characteristic shine through his unique forward-thinking sonics." (label info)
