Where is Pathic playing?
Pathic (real name John Cranmer) is a British DJ, producer and founder of Pyramid Transmissions – ‘One of the most on form electro labels’ (DJ Magazine).
As electro is a tag given to such a divergent range of music, it might be necessary to clarify what we’re talking about here – Body rocking beats that owe more to the likes of Kraftwerk, Underground Resistance and Drexciya, than to ‘80s electropop crooners or painfully trendy East London hangouts. Soulful analogue machinefunk with a cybernetic eye to the future, as opposed to those jarring digital bleepisms with one foot stuck solidly in the past.
At the helm of Pyramid Transmissions, Pathic and co-founder ADJ have proved themselves stalwarts of the underground electro scene. For the past decade, the label’s modest, yet steady supply of releases has earned high praise from aficionados and critics alike and its ever-growing roster of talent includes producers from all over the world.
In addition to his releases on Pyramid Transmissions, Pathic’s productions have found their way on to other labels, including Cultivated Electronics, Minimalsoul Recordings and the much-respected Ai Records.
Since 2003 Pathic has taken his musical endeavours into the live arena with laptop performances at festivals such as Bestival and Bloc Weekend and parties in cosmopolitan cities like Berlin, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Seattle and Lisbon.
Whilst Pathic’s own productions are often more rooted in electro, his DJ sets are often a tad more eclectic; expect to hear glitchy techno, broken beats and dubstep rumbles alongside the trademark booming 808 beats. And during his more intimate bar slots, you’re every bit as likely to hear a bit of Tom Tom Club or Cymande, as you are Plaid or John Tejada.
