19/04 Контакт #4.2 Identified Patient
Identified Patient is one of the most intriguing talents to materialize from Holland’s bustling music scene in recent times. The Amsterdam based artist made a strong up-rise through some of Rotterdam’s finest imprints while filling dance-floors across the country and throughout Europe. His style infuses raw aesthetics with unrivalled, relentless energy which he translates into his productions as fluidly as his DJ sets. Proudly listing his musical inspirations to include Madonna and George Michael as well as The Prodigy and Legowelt -these early seeds were sewn and it wasn’t long before his passion for music burned stronger and stronger. The desire to create became a priority and from this moment, Identified Patient was born.
With a trade mark sound that drifts between the experimental sides of wave, techno and acid, it wasn’t long before his music gained the attention of Rotterdam based labels Common Thread, Pinkman and later London’s Brokntoys. These outlets would become the platforms for his early releases which were recognised as straight hits in several charts and clubs throughout Europe and beyond. At present Identified Patient continues to work closely with Sophie du Palais, who’s dark and dirty vocals are a recurring feature throughout his music, alongside several other projects such as his recently formed alias Stallion Stud. More of this to unfold in the very near future…
Besides his fresh and pounding machine-works, Identified Patient has put himself on the map with his highly energetic DJ sets that jump in all directions both musically and physically, oozing a sexual nature with zestfully unpredictable selections. In 2018 he made his mark with performances at a number of Dekmantel events (his debut Boiler Room performance being a key highlight) and became a regular face at the avant-garde club De School.
The future looks incredibly bright for Identified Patient with a compelling list of forthcoming releases and a seriously extensive touring schedule for 2019 …the desire to spread his musical anecdotes into the cosmos and beyond is stronger than ever!
