Denver, Colorado is the only place to be for the weird, wonderful wubs, the grittiest synths and the heaviest basslines. The Bass Capital is not only home to some of the biggest artists in electronic music like Griz and Pretty Lights, but a plethora of local talent which never cease to impress. It is the talented and constantly-grinding local artists here which continue to give Denver the growing, incredible music scene it does. Denver’s own Patrick Smith, who performs under the moniker Patrick Skyler, brought the heat this September with the release of his new 4-track EP, eloquently titled A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi.
The EP is exactly that – “something which cannot be adequately expressed.” Patrick Skyler is a member of the Mile High Sound Movement. He has harnessed a unique and meticulously crafted sound design through his 20+ years of audio engineering and DJing experience in the local community. He has played venues such as Cervantes, 1Up, Black Box, and Larimer Lounge, just to name a few, and has even been seen gracing the Sonic Bloom lineup. Few locals have the talents and ability to design sound and music the way Patrick Skyler does. Creating music is one thing, truly understanding it is another. This artist does both.
Patrick Skyler continues to push the boundaries of what it means to create live music. His style is an amalgamation of everything weird, loud and simply sick in the Bass community here. His production talents only continue to strengthen, and this EP is a direct reflection of that.
The EP definitely is a musical journey. From the beginning with the very first track “Dick Dastardly” and ending with “Blastin’ Heat”. Don’t just take my word for it – check out the fresh EP below. Patrick Skyler hopes the EP “takes you for a ride…and gently tucks you in”. We’re certainly stoked to follow this local’s journey, and can’t wait to see where his work takes him next.
