After a surprising search through the Sly Vinyl archives, it appears that this EP has yet to receive a write up. patten is a UK producer on the legendary Warp label (home to Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin, among countless others) and with EOLIAN INSTATE‘s¬†release,¬†it also signifies his debut on the label. His sophomore full-length, ESTOILE NAIANT,¬†¬†is due out on the label this month if you’re curious. Released back in November, it broke patten’s two year silence. On¬†EOLIAN INSTATE, you get flirtations with hip-hop, ambient, and IDM.¬†EOLIAN INSTATE¬†is this thalassic haze that floods your head. It takes your mind off any distractions you have and patten makes these songs your main concern with how calming yet trance-like they are. patten’s able to replicate a dualism between sangfroid and aggression without having to compromise maschismo in the end product. Check out¬†EOLIAN INSTATE¬†below via the Spotify stream and see what you think of it. Cheers!
