"Brush Strokes" (Tektrix Mashup) - Simon Patterson vs. John Askew

Los Angeles' Tektrix brings us an astonishing mashup of Simon Patterson's "Brush Strokes." Fusing the vibe of Simon's original with John Askew's uplifting supplements turns the track into a dancefloor smasher that is sure to be a welcome addition to any high-energy set. Good Trance should send you flying out of your head and into the glory of the present moment, and this mashup does just that! Grab your free download below.

Exclusive: "Shadows" - Astrix & Simon Patterson (Original Mix)

Astrix and Simon Patterson, two of my favorite DJs at the moment just released the full mix of "Shadows," and it kills. The original mix pours out with a haunted, space-travel essence that truly combines the sharpened skills of both producers. Astrix's trademark otherworldly sound merges with the brooding quality of Patterson's productions to create a straining monster of a track that is extreme in every sense of the word. While the sinister feeling "Shadows" gives off is not quite adventurous, the track is intricately layered and a delight to get lost in. Grab your download the release today and enjoy the entire mix exclusively below!

Simon Patterson This Friday at Slake NYC - Don't Miss Out

The one thing that I've noticed that sets Simon apart from the rest is his razor sharp focus. Back in early August, Patterson had the walls at Santos Party House shaking for hours, carrying us through unrivaled bliss till early morning. Standing by the DJ booth, I was able to thank him for the truly exceptional sound he sent us spiraling through for five hours. But other than that split second, his eyes and hands were fixed to the decks in a way that was nothing short of obsessive. 

Unbound by genre, Simon reaches a height of intricacy and precision that no commercial DJ I've observed can even come close to. While many of his time-constrained festival sets and Open Up podcasts focus on the high notes of Progressive Psychedelic, rabbit hole nights like the one this Friday at Slake are where his expertise truly shines. Meshing Tech Trance, Progressive, and a hint of Uplifting, Simon will have you forgetting everything you assumed a DJ set should be. Whether you're five minutes in or seconds before the clock hits 4 AM, it's all the same stream of musical liberation and you're a part of that flow. Forget the hype, just come hear for yourself why Simon is my favorite DJ of 2013.

Tonight in NYC: Simon Patterson @ Santos Party House

When the clock strikes eleven tonight the New York TranceFamily embarks on a journey down the rabbit hole with an open-to-close set hosted by Esscala from one of my favorite DJs, Simon Patterson. Psychedelic and driving, "Psymon's" sets are expeditions through the swift and dark soundtrack of the night, constrasting between Progressive House and Trance but never afraid to be of their own invention. The sweet tension between various facets of sound are the defining characteristic of Simon's mixes, surely something I'm more than willing to get lost in for five hours. This is a big weekend for dance music in New York City, but this is the show you don't want to miss at one of my favorite venues, the intimate and always loud Santos Party House. Grab your presales before they close, the first tier of tickets is already sold out so you know this is going to be a big night!
