patten, lowercase intentional, is a London-based musician and producer who has been performing and releasing music on ultra-limited edition CDRs under the moniker since 2006, whilst also running the conceptual label Kaleidoscope. Composing and performing prolifically, rare small-run patten recordings occasionally surfaced from the underground. The Wire described the 2007 CDR 'There were Horizons' as "a world of exquisitely detailed microscopic, ordered purposeful harmony", while the "sonically nuanced, breathless, rugged" track 'Version (test mixxx)' appeared as Pitchfork's Best New Music in May 2009.
Following a series of increasingly intense live performances, playing alongside artists as varied as Thurston Moore, DJ Spooky, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Leafcutter John, Caribou, and JD Samson, the first official LP GLAQJO XAACSSO was released in September 2011 through small UK label, No Pain In Pop to widespread acclaim. Over 2012 & 2013, patten shed light on numerous other underground artists by releasing limited-run editions of their work via his conceptual imprint Kaleidoscope's LIMITED DUBS series. In November 2013 patten was announced as having signed to Warp Records, releasing the EOLIAN INSTATE EP soon after in an edition of just 500 12" picture discs worldwide, with artwork by frequent visual collaborator Jane Eastlight. Weeks later, as part of the Late at Tate series in December 2013, patten performed a live audiovisual set in front of thousands at Tate Britain, for the Warp X Tate event. February 2014 saw the release of his highly-anticipated first LP for Warp, entitled ESTOILE NAIANT.
