Having enjoyed a breathlessly successful 2016, there can be no doubting Alan Fitzpatrick’s position as one of the most influential electronic artists of the moment. Pumped up by yet another series of head-turning productions over the previous twelve months, the Englishman’s profile continues to transition rapidly from the techno underground towards the electronic music main stage , attracting significant attention from BBC Radio 1, Mixmag and Resident Advisor and elevating Fitzpatrick to the position of global headliner. A status supported by the launch of Fitzpatrick’s own multi-faceted We Are The Brave label brand with its all-conquering debut single ‘We Do What We Want’, and the release of a critically acclaimed Fabric 87 mix compilation.
Already a universally respected and in-demand producer, Fitzpatrick has succeeded in carving out his own musical niche within the ever-expanding genre of techno, earning him the reputation of a seemingly unstoppable source of hit music. Tracks such as ‘We Do What We Want’ (THE tune of summer 2016, heard everywhere 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 New Tune) have all topped sales charts since 2009, drawing high praise from peers and tastemakers across genre divides 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 with trademark heavy-funk grooves, blending jungle beats and hardcore bass lines with barnstorming techno dynamics, or conjuring up sumptuous low-slung soundscapes; Alan Fitzpatrick knows how to move your mind, body and soul by delivering tracks that stand out from the norm.
