Patrick Russell is a true veteran of the US underground, perhaps one of the last unsung heroes of a now lost era in the Midwest. A pure sonic storyteller, he magically transforms the diaspora of acid, IDM, and pure jack energy into a deep, fluent sonic dialog that never fails to devastate both minds and dance floor.
A Detroit-bred DJ, artist and producer since the early 90's, Patrick has now made Brooklyn his home. Perhaps best known as a key figure in the legendary No Way Back parties, his resume includes such highlights as an exclusive 2007 DJ set with Jeff Mills in Detroit and performing at the 2001 & 2008 DEMF/Movement festivals, to regular appearances at Bunker, Mysteries Of The Deep, and Capriccio in New York. His ability to weave unique, long-format narratives has also earned him featured spots at festivals such as Unsound, Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, and an upcoming appearance at Labyrinth in Japan. Patrick has also been steadily building a strong catalog of high-profile remixes to compliment his increasingly varied, hypnotic, and in-demand DJ sets.
His consummate taste and disciplined execution have created a respect that cannot be purchased. Patrick Russell is not just a name to watch, he is one to be experienced.
