Pat’s musical background is a melting pot of styles covering Soul, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Reggae & Funk, growing up in the UK, his journey into house music came via his introduction to the infamous rave scene in the late 80s… He never looked back! Now touring all over the world with his soul-tinged sounds, Pat also runs the label Strictly Music & regularly produces alongside DJ Romain under the name ‘Trak Godz’.

The Door of No Return is a real snapshot of Pat’s musical direction – bubbly soulful house music with more than a nod to the US underground. Laced with organ riffs, killer spoken vocal and tightly knitted beats, Pat’s Original & Instrumental kick off the release In true quality. For the remixes, Quantize’s own DJ Spen & Thommy Davis provide 3 different takes keeping all the elements of the original in tact, just adding in some of that Baltimore flavour that fans of the label have come to expect.
