Coming this Friday.

London’s patten today announced a new album, Flex, out this Friday (September 20).

The release will also launch patten’s imprint 555-5555, a name shared by his various side projects including a radio show, club night, creative agency and music forum.

Flex sees the multimedia artist return to solo status after working with a guest vocalist on his last two original projects, 2016’s Psi and 2017’s Requiem. It will combine elements of footwork, trap, UK garage, grime, hip-hop and techno over 14 tracks. A press release states that the album will “take a number of forms” in the coming weeks such as video, zines, a custom perfume and a series of skateboards. For now, listeners can stream its first track, ‘Flame’, a dark, bass-weighted club tune that clangs and zaps, and skulks low to the floor.

A new Flex live AV show is coming as well, starting September 21 at The Hague’s TodaysArt festival. Find new tour dates below, along with the album’s cover art and tracklist.
