ATISH

The Atish experience: deep, emotive, ecstatic. It is more than the beautiful sounds emanating from the speakers, though, it is also the man behind the decks: warm, compassionate, inviting. In an age of oversized DJ egos there is still an artist who is devoted to connecting with his audience, a humble soul with a pure passion for music. This is Atish.

Atish occupies a rare space in dance music. At a time when most DJs rise to prominence primarily through their work as producers, Atish’s success has been realized through his total devotion to the art of DJing. What began at a small gig back in 2010 in San Francisco has since flowered into a magical journey around the world at clubs, festivals, and afterhours on six of the seven continents.

His success comes as no surprise to anyone who has seen Atish DJ live or listened to one of his mixes. With a combination of sophistication and accessibility, his sets are expressive journeys in melodic deep house that create lasting emotional experiences for the listener. Atish is also a natural performer, engaging the crowd with a mixture of charisma and charm. He’s been known to don costumes and wigs when he spins, a playfulness that balances the strict discipline and obsessiveness he has for DJing.

Atish’s natural talent and passion for music haven’t gone unnoticed. Lee Burridge asked Atish to play on the legendary Robot Heart bus sound system at Burning Man in 2011, and Atish has been invited back every year since. He’s also been honored to open for or tag with some of the most respected names in dance music including John Digweed, Danny Howells, Guy Gerber, M.A.N.D.Y., and Tyrant. Currently, Atish is a resident of the Desert Hearts family, a West Coast collaborative who put on the highly respected semi-annual Desert Hearts festival and he is a resident of Behrouz’s Miami club, Do Not Sit on the Furniture.

Atish has also developed a strong online presence through Soundcloud. A prolific mixer, Atish produces a monthly podcast series that has allowed him to express a deeper, moodier sound. Scrolling through his extensive catalog of mixes, one can hear an artist passionate about music and dedicated to the perfection of his craft. Having achieved so much in such a short amount of time, the dance music community is excited to see how far he can go.

PATLAC

Patlacs journey to the world of electronic music began at an early age. After taking the first curious steps as a DJ, he soon realized that the emotional landscape of the Dancefloor was a place of mutual listening and sharing.

Patlacs journey to the world of electronic music began at an early age. After taking the first curious steps as a DJ, he soon realized that the emotional landscape of the Dancefloor was a place of mutual listening and sharing. Alone or at the same time with his best friend Matthias Meyer he began to explore those places and moments even further. Having been friends since their childhood, the two complemented each other playing back-to-back in a perfect way.

But just playing records wasn’t enough for Patlac in the long run. The need to develope and create an own sound was inevitable. Their first EP on the Hamburg imprint liebe*detail extended the collaboration even outside of the DJ booth and gave the possibility to work as an individual producer as well. Until today Patlac has released singles on labels such as liebe*detail and Soulfooled.

Besides his own releases Patlac has earned respect as a Remixer. His remixes for Endless,Pets Recordings, liebe*detail, Musik Gewinnt Freunde,Noir and several others proved that he is a promising producer.

No matter if it’s one of his own creation or a remix: all of his work reflects his sensitive approach to music and the Dancefloor. His empathy for place, time and people results in energetic sessions. They are not only driven by pushing rhythms and hypnotic grooves but also by a gentle sense for harmony and melody – as if each performance is a journey of its own.
