Born in the UK and based in Verona, Italy, Patrick Gibin started his label Blend It! Records in 2011 by releasing the first of his Black Aroma edits EPs under the moniker of Twice. The Black Aroma releases are a collection of respectfully crafted edits that reflect the wide spectrum of his record collection and have quickly become a must-have for diggers and djs worldwide. His distinctive touch in editing obscure, often overlooked jazz-funk and boogie tunes is well represented by his releases on labels like Razor n Tape, Sounds Familiar and Salsoul Records.
Staying true to his eclectic taste, Patrick’s productions echo his music background, taking inspiration from house, brokenbeat and 80s music. He worked with artists like Kaidi Tatham, Erik Rico, Clara Hill, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Tommaso Cappellato and Javonntte. A special mention goes to his 2019 release on Eglo Records called Cloud Nine, a 2 track EP featuring the soul filled tones of Detroit native Javonntte on vocals and musical polymath Mark de Clive-Lowe on keys. Constantly working in studio on new tracks and remixes, there’s definitely much more to come.
Patrick’s mixes, radio shows and podcasts on various platforms that include NTS, Dekmantel Radio, Mellotron and many others, give the chance to enjoy the breadth of his selections. Notably he has a profound love for slow jams, that he had the chance to express with the limited edition Altered Soul Experiment tape back in 2016.
Resident DJ at berlinClub, responsible for the monthly Papaia Club party and co-producer of the venue’s DJ sessions, Gaspar has been with berlinClub since its beginnings at the former location en Calle Jacometrezo. Music teacher, booker, label manager and, above all, DJ, Antuña’s sets are characterized by their broad range of sounds, with groove as their unfailing north. His sets lean toward genres like Disco, House, Soul, and Electronic Club Music, but are always full of surprises from his expansive musical background.
