Always one to wear his heart on his sleeve, the north Londoner has fast become known for his known for his honest and conscious approach to hip hop. Patch now announces a new EP project ‘Regard-Less’. Free from any conceptual notions and bored of trying to fit his brand of hip hop into the usual boxes, Patch has delivered a free flowing collection of songs, exchanging typical song structures with emotions. The aim was to let the music flow out naturally, regardless of whether they fitted into any traditional format. He furthers this by saying;
“The idea behind the ep was just to let my thoughts flow out naturally, regardless of whether they fitted into any traditional format. It was also written at a time when I having to remind myself to be true to who I am and have less regard for what anyone else thinks , hence the hyphen in the title. It’s a very free flowing project with no defined structure other than the current of emotion flowing through it.”
Whilst not afraid to tackle personal issues and contemplative moods in his more chilled tracks There is an obvious duality to Patch’s music,, he also covers more basic and carnal instincts of a 20 something in London. Coining the philosophy which ties all his music together as ‘Embracing Your Contradictions’, he describes this ethos as “a way of encouraging myself and others to express all elements of who they are, even the bits that don’t make sense to the rest of the world.”
2016 was a breakthrough year for the burgeoning wordsmith. His debut EP ‘Space Between The Heartbeats’ and following tracks ‘Point Of View’, ‘90s’ and
‘Sketchbook’ all helped establish Patch as a one to watch after being championed by platforms such as Complex, Indie Shuffle, Audiomack, MTV, SBTV, Soundspace and much more.
To celebrate ‘Embrace Your Contradictions’ Patch has announced a new clothing brand, kicking things off with ‘EYC’ T-shirts available online here: https://embrace-your-contradictions.myshopify.com/collections/all
