With the B-side “Sandcrawler” Patrick Podage grants us a moment to breathe a sigh of relief. The combination of soft sound surfaces and a memorable synthline that glides smoothly through the track makes the end of the song seem like an unpleasant return from a better world to reality.
Patrick Podage, supposedly still perhaps the most underrated producer north, west, south and east of the Swiss Alps, has returned to Plastic City to deliver an EP bursting with self-confidence and creativity.
Patrick Podage isn’t a skank. Rather he communicates and convinces through quality and diversity. With “Mudcrawler” – the A-side and title of the whole EP – he once again proves his talent to brew sophisticated drums with a powerful bass line and just a few more ingredients to a minimalistic conglomerate that makes his faithful audience tip over.
