“My message to the dance floor is: Go for it” – Patrick Gibin

Born in the UK and based in Verona, Italy, Patrick Gibin started his label Blend It! Records in 2011 by releasing the first of his Black Aroma edits EPs under the moniker of Twice. His distinctive touch in editing obscure, often overlooked jazz-funk and boogie tunes is well represented by his releases on labels like Razor n Tape, Sounds Familiar and Salsoul Records.

Patrick’s productions and dj sets are inspired by his love for house, brokenbeat and 80s music: he collaborated with artists such as Kaidi Tatham, Erik Rico, Clara Hill, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Tommaso Cappellato and Javonntte. A special mention goes to his 2019 release on Eglo Records “Cloud Nine”, which was included in the 2019 best tracks chart by Resident Advisor.

His guest shows on platforms like NTS and Dekmantel/Red Light Radio, but especially his Altered Soul Experiment cassette-only live mixes highlight his soft spot for mellow and laidback tunes, which are an essential part of his music collection.

In May 2019 Patrick launched Mother Tongue, an EU-funded project aimed at supporting independent labels and artists in the “jungle” of vinyl production today. Mother Tongue is a vinyl pressing plant, record label, distributor and online shop collaborating with a like minded music community worldwide, with the main goal of making the release of music on wax a more intimate, relationship-based and stress-free affair.

With the heartfelt passion of pushing the music he loves in his hometown, Patrick has been consistently throwing parties over the past 15 years. Together with long time friend Volcov, he has a monthly residency in Verona called GO-TO, which takes place in a small, dark, intimate club with a banging custom-made soundsystem. All you need.
