Patrice Bäumel’s long awaited Glutes gets released on Afterlife Recordings and adds podcast

Patrice Bäumel long awaited debut on Afterlife will finally see the light of day on May 12th with a two track EP named Glutes, containing two striking and successfully road-tested tracks named Glutes and Engage.

‘Glutes’ is peak-time material without being overly fast or chaotic, the energy instead coming from the transportive arrangement and emotive melodic content. The title track rises and falls, surging with wide-sweeping synth notes and a steady rhythm to anchor the waves. An infectious refrain pulls you further in and, right on cue, the kick drum continues to beat the sweet spot.

‘Engage’ is filled with similarly subtle details, uplifting arpeggios and atmospheric reverb. Half-way through the melody bursts into life, shining brightly through the haze and creating one of those moments of release that make the Afterlife sound work so well on a dance floor.

Celebrating this release, Patrice has also created the third podcast in the Afterlife Voyage podcast series. Welcoming summer with a tour through carefully-selected, feel-good records. Subtle, driving and uplifting in equal parts, this Voyage is mixed with the elegance and expertise of someone with over two decades experience behind the decks.
