Tongue-in-cheek, new age trap producer 8prn creates alternative, clean, club music, sample his goods via this week's i-DJ.
Discovering a new, fully blown talent, lesser known in wider music circles feels special. Showcasing Inoj - Love You Down (8prn remix) via his fader mix earlier this year, Ryan Hemsworth drummed up some well deserved attention for fast rising producer, Patrick Holland. Repping a whole crew of talent coming straight out of the more typically suburban musical territories of Vancouver, change is on the rise for Canada. Raised on Bames, Falcons, Lunice, and Sango Holland, Patrick then got into old Triple 6, Koopsta Knicca, DJ Paul, and Juicy J and began working old southern triplet hi-hat and deep sub into his new age trap, 140 BPM signature sound. A fixture on the i-D stereo over the past few weeks, 8prn is a solid favourite with the team. Intrigued by where Patrick came from and who he surrounds himself by, we commissioned a mix and turned it around in 48 hours, complete with a couple of exclusive drops. His sound is musical caviar, indulge. Learn more via 8prn below..
8prn: "I am a newcomer to the scene in Vancouver, but I have witnessed it unveil some incredible talent within the underground and mainstream worlds. There are a number of notable collectives/labels based here; Mood Hut, Lighta Sound, and Chapel Sound (which I am apart of), to name a few. Some of my favourite artists from the area include Falcons, Cyril Hahn, Evy Jane and Heartbeat(s). I feel music from here tends to have a darkness to it, influenced by the terrible weather that lasts for majority of the year. The club culture here is a little weak, due to shitty municipal laws, but it has forced people to start more after hours events and independent shows."
