Patric Catani - Flex Busterman's Hardsidbreak Hotel

from by Blip Festival



Coming from a punk background and after dropping out of school to join the rave scene, Patric began using a C64 Computer and 'ripping' the music out of old arcade games. His first Hardcore/Techno/Gabba record in the 1992, aged 16 was made on a Amiga 500. At first he released music under the name E de Cologne, and several other pseudonyms. His early work was influential to a lot of other Experimental and Breakcore oriented bands and musicians.

From 2000 to Present, Catani is credited with production on over a dozen albums for other artists. Most notable notable among them are albums by Puppetmastaz, Chilly Gonzales, and Cobra Killer.

Catani has more recently been working on a solo project, Candie Hank. It has been described as "A grotesque entertainment show with no limit, a collision of Rock'n Roll, Moog influenced, harsh synthscapes breakcore, but Belly Dance Punk and Gabba like Proto Pop". Most of his tracks under the names Patric Catani, Patric C and EC8OR are released on Alec Empire's Digital Hardcore Recordings, also home to fellow Puppetmasta Bomb 20.
