Season III Closing Party with Patrice Baumel photo gallery
We are happy and proud to announce our Closing Party for the third season at Klubd. We had some unforgettable moments again, and most importantly, great music from great artists.
So, for the finish of the season we saved a great artist that is on top of the game at the moment, after releasing his début Album this year.
Thanks all of you for the support and see you on the dancefloor!
Patrice Bäumel is a German electronic musician who has been living in Amsterdam for the last 14 years. Before fully committing his life to making music, he had a carreer in teaching, computer programming and design...
Some people are collectors. They collect foto's, books, records. They cherish the memories that are attached to these things, mentally re-living bygone days. The older and rarer an object is, the more valuable and fascinating it seems to them.
Patrice is not one of those people. No foto collection. Memory is baggage. No vinyl fetish. Tradition is limitation. Future, however, is a blank sheet of paper, waiting to be scribbled upon in the maddest colours imaginable. The excitement of the unknown is what motivates him to experiment and break free from the herd. Holy cows need to be slaughtered every now and then. Look closely and you will see blood on his hands. Behind the decks or in the studio, Patrice tries to combine the uncombinable, mix contrasting elements, play with surprising dynamics. Man vs machine, warm vs cold. It is the reoccurring theme in his tracks, podcasts and dj sets.
Patrice has gained a rock solid reputation worldwide through his productions for labels like Get Physical (“Roar”), Trapez or Studio !K7. Remix work includes mixes for Booka Shade or Bomb The Bass. Together with Nuno Dos Santos he forms “360”, a cutting edge dj and production duo. Their monthly residency at Trouw is a wild display of new school electronic dance music. As a co-owner of the new Trouw label and booking agency, Patrice is involved in many aspects of today's music business.
