about

For the past several years Ravitz has been keeping up his production of house and techno music via different outfits like Inhalants, Masks, or Pulpo and most notably Patricia with his last year’s release – an epic 3LP record – ‘Several Shades of the Same Color’. His recent effort called ‘Free Lunch’ explores one of the directions presented on the album, however this time adding more color in the palette.

Continuing to tool and retool his modular synth rack, on ‘Free Lunch’ Ravitz produces energetic electro tracks that show a shift from the familiar hazy murkiness to a fairly present sound and almost song-like writing that introduces layered melodies, acid grooves and luscious pointillism. ‘Your Battery Is Leaking’ is a groovy electro track with sizzling hi-hats, grimy bass tune and a lot of acid, while ‘Consumer Recreation Services’ is a heady trip of restless arpeggios and melting synths. ‘Placeholder’ combines the ingredients of the first two tracks and ‘Early Stages of Something’ brings back the grimy bass and lively groove. Finally ‘Winnipeg’ is the perfect closer returning to layered synth melodies and syncopated bass that brings back the feel of ‘I Know The Face, But Not The Name’ from his last album.

"Free Lunch will please anyone who dug Patricia’s recent triple LP Several Shades Of The Same Colour." (Norman Records)

"‘Early Stages Of Something‘ strikingly evokes the constantly evolutive, WIP-friendly feel of Patricia’s compositions; recorded in single takes and as little retouched as possible – allowing him to “view mistakes that, in the past I would’ve edited out, as unique events in a song that only happen once.” A true masterclass of an analogue jam. ... ‘Early Stages Of Something‘ radiates with this very singular, off-kilter mix of adventurousness and elegance that’s become the trademark of an artist unlike any other – surprising all the way through both its compulsive rhythmic phrases and haunting melody. Vibrant." (Inverted Audio)
