ALAN FITZPATRICK

Having enjoyed a breathlessly successful 2016, there can be no doubting Alan Fitzpatrick’s position as one ofthe most influential electronic artists of the moment. Pumped up by yet another series of head-turningproductions over the previous twelve months, the Englishman’s profile continues to transition rapidly fromthe techno underground towards the electronic music main stage, attracting significant attention from BBCRadio 1, Mixmag and Resident Advisor and elevating Fitzpatrick to the position of global headliner. A statussupported by the launch of Fitzpatrick’s own multi-faceted We Are The Brave label brand with its allconqueringdebut single ‘We Do What We Want’, and the release of a critically acclaimed Fabric 87 mixcompilation.Already a universally respected and in-demand producer, Fitzpatrick has succeeded in carving out his ownmusical niche within the ever-expanding genre of techno, earning him the reputation of a seeminglyunstoppable source of hit music. Tracks such as ‘We Do What We Want’ (THE tune of summer 2016, heardeverywhere from BBC Match Of The Day to Annie Mac on Radio 1 to KFC!) ‘Love Siren’, ‘Truant’, ‘Skeksis,‘For An Endless Night’, ‘Always Something For Nothing’ and ‘Reflections’ (a BBC Radio 1 Essential Newnge-booking.comTune) have all topped sales charts since 2009, drawing high praise from peers and tastemakers across genredivides for the vibrancy, originality and inventiveness that has come to characterise Alan Fitzpatrick’s music.Whether he is adding diva vocals to cavernous beat workouts, fusing emotive chord sequences withtrademark heavy-funk grooves, blending jungle beats and hardcore bass lines with barnstorming technodynamics, or conjuring up sumptuous low-slung soundscapes; Alan Fitzpatrick knows how to move yourmind, body and soul by delivering tracks that stand out from the norm.As if this impressive succession of high impact, floor-filling bombs was not enough to sustain the best-sellingartist, a new sound has emerged from Fitzpatrick’s sonic palette; broader in its range and rooted inexperiments with more soulful or deeper influences from across electronica, breakbeat, dub and house. Yetdespite spreading his musical wings, Fitzpatrick’s magic touch remains with this latest stylistic departureproducing some of his biggest hits to date in the form of stand-out releases for Drumcode, B-Pitch Control,Hotflush Recordings, Hypercolour and 17 Steps, plus remixes for Roisin Murphy, Leftfield, Gorgon City andMoby plus not forgetting his remix of Trus’Me ‘I Want You’, a huge Ibiza anthem and a unanimously popularchoice for DJs spanning the club spectrum through the latter half of 2014. All of which further reinforces thenecessity for observers of all things techno to recalculate what it is that they can expect from an AlanFitzpatrick record.The same intuitive sense that Fitzpatrick possesses in the studio is also evident when he steps into the DJbooth. A regular guest at a long list of high profile clubs across the globe and an alumnus of the covetedBBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, Fitzpatrick has a global profile. Fans from all over the world are attracted to theenergy of Fitzpatrick’s trademark tough, hooky grooves and incendiary beats molded together with cerebralmoments of emotive melody, the man from Southampton can be found headlining events across Europe,North America, Asia and South America, including his own We Are The Brave parties and festivals such asTomorrowlands, Creamfields, Lovebox, Parklife, Junction 2, Hideout, EDC Las Vegas and a busy Ibiza seasonplaying for El Row at Amnesia, Paradise at DC10 and hosting his own We Are The Brave four-date take-overas part of Do Not Sleep’s season long residency at Sankeys.
