Patch releases new EP ‘Regard-Less’
We first became aware of London rapper and spoken word artist Patch when he released ‘Space Between The Heartbeats’ EP last year. Tracks from which went on to be championed by many a tastemaker online and at radio.
Since then he has become known for his honest and sometimes leftfield approach to hip hop. Tired of trying to fit his brand of hip hop into the usual boxes, his latest EP ‘Regard-Less’ see the young emcee trade typical song structures for emotions free flowing moods. Highlights include the laid back ‘Absence of Confusion’ and the harder ‘Pinot Noir’, both showcasing a clever duality to his music.
The 5 track offering feels very organic, something perhaps not for radio playlists but certainly a collection of songs you’d want to play in its entirety when kicking back at home. Patch explains his approach this time round:
“The idea behind the ep was just to let my thoughts flow out naturally, regardless of whether they fitted into any traditional format. It was also written at a time when I having to remind myself to be true to who I am and have less regard for what anyone else thinks , hence the hyphen in the title. It’s a very free flowing project with no defined structure other than the current of emotion flowing through it.”
‘Regard-Less’ is out on all digital streaming platforms 25th August
