About Patricia

Brooklyn-based Max Ravitz produces hissy lo-fi techno and house under the name Patricia. His experimental but always danceable tracks generally feature scuzzy, distorted beats and lush ambient textures, and are typically composed and recorded on the spot using analog equipment. Ravitz had been producing hip-hop and electronic music since his early teens, but started using the moniker Patricia during the early 2010s, after he had moved to New York from his native city of Chicago. He began playing gigs with fellow underground dance producers such as SFV Acid and Terekke, and British label Opal Tapes released his debut Body Issues on cassette later in the year. Its popularity led to a vinyl reissue on sister label Black Opal the following year, as well as international gigs. Ghostly International's dancefloor-centric imprint Spectral Sound released Patricia's Side Piece EP in 2014, and a second Opal Tapes release, Bem Inventory, appeared in 2015. In addition to his busy touring schedule, Ravitz released material as M.Rav on Ron Morelli's L.I.E.S. (Long Island Electrical Systems), and participated in collaborative projects with fellow Opal Tapes and L.I.E.S. artists such as Jahiliyya Fields, Terekke, NGLY, and Bookworms. He returned to Spectral Sound in 2017 with Several Shades of the Same Color, an ambitious full-length issued as three separate 12" records. ~ Paul Simpson
