JAKE PATRICK [Harmonic, Music Savages, Avalon] grew up in rural Maine with classic rock, jazz, blues, soul, funk, and reggae influences from his hippie parents. After being encouraged at a young age by his mother to not follow musical trends, and to truly discover and absorb music on his own, he stumbled across the likes of Kraftwerk, Prodigy, and every PURE DISCO compilation ever put together. At age 15, he developed a serious dependency on electronic music while immersed in the rave scene in New England. He found a group of people who’s intention was to use music to create a movement—an intention similar to that his parents had experienced almost 40 years earlier. Since then, Jake has been fueled by enhancing and evolving underground techno culture across the United States. With 10 years of DJ experience, Jake has more recently been expanding his artistic expression as a producer and VJ, to continually deliver his audience a complete package of cutting edge sounds and visions.
Jake has spent the last 8 years in Los Angeles constantly showcasing his talents around the city’s most revered electronic music nights. His sound has developed as a fusion of stripped down house and bouncy minimal techno. His fierce passion for sexy, slinky, forward-thinking house and techno, paired with a unique layered mixing style have not only landed him bookings across the US and Mexico, but also weekly and monthly residencies at three cornerstone venues of the west coast -two of which are the largest and most established super clubs in the United States- Giant @ VANGUARD (04/07-10/07), Damaged Goods @ KING KING (01/10-11/10), and currently Avaland @ AVALON, where he’s shared the stage opening and closing for major acts like Loco Dice, Martin Buttrich, Livio and Roby, Nic Fanciulli, Matthias Tanzmann, Davide Squillace, Steve Bug, Adultnapper, Berskon and What, Matthew Dear, Lee Curtiss, Shaun Reeves, Lee Foss, Droog, just to name a handful. Other projects of his include DELINQUENT FREQUENCY, a 4 deck tag team performance friend Matthew Derham, and MUSIC SAVAGES (www.musicsavages.com), a west coast based DJ collective he co-founded.
His special event and media production company HARMONIC has been hosting fashion shows, movie premieres, club nights, and underground parties since 2005, including the official annual closing party (Nikki Beach) at Winter Music Conference in Miami, the opening and closing parties of Lovefest in San Francisco, not to mention the infamous HEAR and DAMAGED GOODS series in LA. DJ Koze, Robag Wruhme, Dandy Jack & Sonja Moonear, Sebo K, Mr. C, Sety, Clive Henry, Pan-Pot, Ryan Crosson, Adultnapper, Jan Krueger, Bill Patrick, Mark Henning, Jeremy P Caulfield, Derek Plaslaiko, Michal Ho Jason Emsley, Franklin de Costa, along with so many other esteemed international artists, have delivered epic performances for Jake and Harmonic.
Whether it be as a DJ, throwing next-level parties, or producing music that makes you want to groove, Jake Patrick’s versatility and quality of contribution to dance music culture is something that will continually set the bar within his market. A performance you won’t soon forget.
