Rodriguez Jr Live (Mobilee)
Olivier Mateu’s wide-ranging inspirations and interests find their ultimate outlet as Rodriguez Jr., positioning him as Mobilee’s new master of eclecticism.
As one half of French electro act The Youngsters – best known for their two studio albums and singles for Laurent Garnier’s F-Communications – Mateu has already received enough plaudits and praise to last a lifetime. The Youngsters’ award-winning productions catapulted them into the international arena, taking them to some of the biggest clubs and festivals around the world.
Rodriguez Jr. reveals a different incarnation of Mateu’s musical psyche, one that strides ahead, guided only by his kaleidoscopic vision; moving through shimmering, contemplative electronica, to deep and urgent techno, leftfield melodic accents and quirky pop refrains, Rodriguez Jr. is the by-product of an untamed brand of creativity and a thirst for the new and unexpected. Drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as Stockhausen, LFO, Carl Craig, Eric Satie, Kraftwerk, and Michael Polnareff, Rodriguez Jr.’s spirit of adventure translates as soaring creativity, and music that cannot be pigeonholed.
Mateu manifests Rodriguez Jr. in his MLab Mk5 studio, which brims with vintage synthesizers and dusty analog gear. Acclaimed Rodriguez Jr. releases for imprints such as Mothership, Boxer Records and Giant Wheels, prefaced the quirky melodies of his bass-driven house hit Princess Guacamole for mobilee records, and the tropical techno of Kids of Hula for it’s sister label Leena Music. Drawing both pleasure and inspiration from live performance, Rodriguez Jr. relishes the opportunity to realize his project on the stage, and has done extensively throughout Europe and America.
As he restlessly seeks out the ultimate intersection between all of his disparate influences, Mateu explains it best: “Good electronic music is not a jail,” he says, “It should be enjoyable everywhere, from dancefloors to living rooms, and by everybody.” Now an integral part of the mobilee family, Mateu will continue to channel his vision, passion, and love of music into all that he does, and all that will come.
Patrice Bäumel is an internationally renowned Dj and producer currently living in Amsterdam. 2017 was Patrice’s most successful year yet, the culmination of many years traveling the road, a positive change in lifestyle, lots more hard work, fun, and spreading the love. From being invited by Radio 1 to contribute to the esteemed Essential Mix series, to his Afterlife released single ‘Glutes’ being voted one of the biggest tracks of the year, 2017 was a year to remember for Patrice, and a sign of things to come…
Patrice is currently busy in the studio working on his eagerly anticipated follow ups for both Afterlife and Kompakt. After’s 2016’s prolific musical output which included the Balance compilation series, EPs on Correspondant and Speicher/Kompakt, plus remixes for Underworld and Depeche Mode. His musical footprint grew even larger in 2017 with releases on Crosstown Rebels, Anjunadeep, Kompakt and more, whilst continuing his growth as a DJ, performing every weekend to new fans around the world.
Since graduating from the Red Bull Music Academy in Sao Paolo in 2002 and deciding to turn his hobby into a career, Patrice has been on a mission to create and share music that spreads love, positivity and happiness, works in a peaktime context and most of all connects people with each other.
Patrice was born in the small East German town of Freital, amidst the restrictive political situation of Eastern Bloc communism. With his father working as a music journalist, there was music around the house all the time. From free jazz, Frank Zappa, Nick Cave, Laurie Anderson right through to rock and punk bands like The Rolling Stones, The Velvet Underground, Sex Pistols or The Ramones. His father encouraged him to find his own musical path, which led him to childhood obsessions with Depeche Mode and The Cure, the bands whose melancholic nature still are at the root of Patrice’s sound today.
In 1996 Pat moved to Amsterdam from his native Germany, an exciting and vibrant city full of optimism and diversity, without the tension and economic crisis that he left back home. Dabbling in DJing and production, Patrice was on a new life changing journey to a path he now calls his own. He found his way to Club 11 where he became a resident, before naturally migrating with the same core team to Trouw, his nights ‘Black Magic’ and ‘Hifi’ becoming favourites at the now legendary venue.
Bäumel infuses his productions and DJ sets with an infectious energy and a sense of adventure, creating a sound that satisfies the mind as well as the body. He calls it ‘techno music for grown-ups’. Trademark productions like ‘Surge’, ‘Glutes’ and ‘Roar’ and his remix of Cubicolour’s ‘Deep End Thrills’ are perfect examples of that philosophy.
The buzz around him is growing. Bäumel’s 2018 is looking bright.
