Ooo yeah, hot, deep, genius and seductive underground sounds on this night
AGARIC aka Patrik Skoog isnâ€˜t only one of the youngest veteran techno and house producers from Sweden, heâ€˜s also one of the most interesting and inspired. Though incredibly versatile, the sustained energy in his sets and productions are equally exceptional.
In the last two years, Agaric established the Club Tracks 10â€œ series on his label We Are. Besides his own stellar productions, collaborations with close friends Shonky, Waker Bernard, Ed Davenport, and Beaner have also graced the Club Tracks series.
International support came from leading DJs like Richie Hawtin, Seth Troxler, Loco Dice, Ben Klock, Luciano, Joris Voorn, Magda, Laurent Garnier, Sven VÃ¤th, and Adam Beyer. Above all, his productions were championed by Josh Wink, who went on to sign his upcoming album debut to his Ovum imprint.
After more than 100 vinyl releases, Patrik Skoog can look back at quite a history:His harder Techno project Headroom on his label Native Diffusion, releases on Synewave, Loop, and many more long forgotten underground labels in the 90s and early 2000s left his first mark for those who know. From 2005 on, he evolved into his deeper Agaric project, with releases on his internationally celebrated We Are label, Adam Beyerâ€˜s Drumcode, Truesoul & Mad Eye, Raumâ€¦Musik, Sunset Diskos, Nummer, Kontra Musik Treibstoff and Liebe Detail.
As a technical DJ with a magical sense for momentum and selection, heâ€˜s been playing worldwide for more than 15 years, while his equally as stellar Live sets are one of the few that can rock a crowd throughout its duration. Relocating to Berlin in 2007, he quickly established himself as a celebrated constant inspiration, be it for extended Bar25 after hour sets, or club nights in Watergate, Arena, and Berghainâ€˜s Panoramabar, where he now holds his We Are label nights.
As a continuous journey through Patrik Skoogs inner world and inspiration, his debut album is a mature reflection and expression of an old soul in club music. Snappy tight funk, sub base driven grooves, and shuffling hats create the foundations for spheric sound design and processed vocals, culminating in living and breathing club music.
Carefully crafted and built up, the album spans from classic chicago and detroit inspirations with a driving forceful swedish techno flavor, to warped spooky weirdness and ethereal shoe gazing soundscapes.
Do you know that feeling? Itâ€˜s tickling the temporal lobe, creating that sensation, a space where nothing needs to be as it seems, a temporary utopia that provides ultimate freedom, while the beat roots you in the here and now. Agaric is capturing this otherworldly state with this introverted, intimately manifested mind journey. The edge of the rabbit hole is where Agaric makes you move, body and mind.
Agaricâ€˜s mature, yet free floating approach to club music culture promises not only sweaty nights (and days) on the floor, but also peace of mind and revelation for the searching soul.
