Patrick aka CBRN has been spinning records for 14 years and producing for 7 years. His versatile drum and bass flavor has been moving dance floors for the past decade. Patrick grew up listening to hip hop, dancehall and punk music which is evident in his production. He started spinning vinyl in 1998 and quickly began playing at local events. In 2001 he moved out to Tacoma, Washington and was thrust deep into the Northwest drum and bass scene. He started producing in 2004 and has a very unique sound with passionate melodies and deep basslines. His production spectrum ranges from liquid style drum and bass to hard ragga/breakcore. His influences include the world renowned breakcore producer End.User, Ragga Jungle producers Tasha, OSCI, Peligro, drum and bass producers Will Miles and Ill Omen/Venture Brothers.
He currently resides in Hampton Roads Virginia where his is constantly playing shows in VA/DC/NC/PA. With one LP release under his belt with Rockers 175 in 2011, he has been honing his sound and is on a mission to push drum and bass/jungle to the masses.
Patrick has teamed up with End.User on the Breakcore smasher “Pressure” which is set to release on Flatwoods Creative in 2012. He is also working with a few other international Ragga Jungle producers so be on the lookout for more releases.
