We chat with the versatile party-starter in the latest installment of Meet the Residents.
Having shared the decks with everyone from Jazzy Jeff to Diplo, in 2010 he entered his one and only DJ competition, gaining the votes of A-Trak and Kissy Sell Out to win the UK Red Bull Thre3style title ahead of the likes of Oneman & Martelo. His hectic touring schedule has taken him to MTV events in Berlin, festivals in India, DJing raves in Lisbon subway stations and blissed-out beaches in Ibiza.
Introducing Shane Patrick, Ministry of Sound resident since 2012...
After winning a worldwide search to become Ministry of Sounds new resident in March 2012, Shane Patrick has blossomed into one of the most talked about DJ/Producers on the planet. The Irishman has shared the stage with the likes of Steve Angello, Kaskade, Sander Van Doorn, Laidback Luke, infact, too many to list here. Shane has also played the last two DJ Mag Top 100 parties, supporting Armin Van Buuren and Hardwell respectively. Having clocked up some serious air miles over the past few years, he has visited each and every continent with a passport bulging with stamps and visa’s. Regular trips to Miami during WMC time and not forgetting the occasional visit back to the home country Ireland, this talented individual is in the form of his life.
At the next Defected In The House event here at Ministry of Sound on 8th February, the legendary Kenny Dope headlines, bringing a taste of US magic to London’s most iconic club.
While the reduction in barriers to music production have allowed artists to remain ever more faceless over the last few years, house music used to be all about big names and big personalities, and neither are much bigger than Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez. Whether it’s his pioneering work as one half of Masters at Work and Nuyorican Soul, or solo endeavours as Mass Destruction, Kenny’s beats take some serious beating and his hands-on, unpredictable sets still bear the hallmarks of his musical origins as a hip-hop DJ.
Ahead of his appearance, we talk you through five of the records with which he made his name...
Nurorican Soul – The Nervous TrackA stone-cold classic and one that – more than 20 years after its initial release – sounds every bit as fresh, exciting and unique as it did when it was originally released. Occupying the often hazardous space between house, funk and jazz, The Nervous Track painstakingly blended elements from all three genres and beyond to create a record that discloses new joys with every listen. Dope and Louie Vega’s Nuyorican Soul project was all about fusion; gelling what were seen as disparate sounds and techniques, and The Nervous Track was arguably their crowning glory.
