Patrick Chardronnet is definitely one of those artists who let their music speak for itself rather, instead of making a big fuss about his person. Deep in Germany’s Black Forest, from a small house surrounded by thousands of mighty firs, Patrick Chardronnet – looked away in his room of humming machines – has dedicated well over a decade to honing his signature sound as an artist: crisp, high-definition beats and minimal grooves harnessed to an intuitive understanding of structure and melody.
Next to producing Patrick Chardronnet clearly focusses on his live-performance. Everybody who has seen him act live on stage once would have observed his passion for music and entertainment. His intoxicating live-sets create a very special form of energy, that infects everybody sooner or later. He has toured extensively, intoxicating dancefloors across the USA, Japan, Europe and Russia.

It’s Techno that spans genres and defies age and era. With lush dreamy sonics, warm rolling drums and a plot that unfolds into an impassioned story, Patrick Chardronnet turned a timeless piece of music into an instant Techno classic. And to commemorate this one we are releasing it as a special coloured vinyl with exclusive artwork making it a must have for every DJ and music lover. The Track did reach #10 in the Beatport Techno Charts as well the #1 in the Decks Charts.
