Patrick Richard's debut LP "Transgression" sums up his musical output so far: Deep, emotional and intelligent techno. It is a coherent, yet rich and diverse LP: full of dirty samples, cinematic sowker edge to them. The Blade Runner tinted "Escape", for example, takes you on a sonic journey through misty dystopian wastelands, while "The Abyss" dives deep below, with dusky chords, psychedelic Arp-leads and skitzo riffs accompanying the listener on the descent. On the more upbeat side you have "B Ortz' Edit", a slightly breakbeat flavoured stomper with warehousey stabs, or "Flare Gun" a Detroit-oozing killer, with epic strings on top of a pumping broken groove, guaranteed to get the crowd moving. The LP also contains more tranquil moments such as "Shelter", and subtle deep techno, such as the foggy "Searchlights". Comprising dirty basement house, dark dubby techno, flirts with broken beat, ambient serenity, as well as more experimental ingredients, Transgression is indeed a diverse and generous debut.
