SummaryCotter Records is pleased to present an album we cannot stop listening to-Technicolor HI-FI by drummer, composer, producer, and band leader Pat Van Dyke.
Pat Van Dyke, aka PVD, balances the rhythmic intensity of true-school hip hop with the rich harmony & refreshing subtlety of jazz. Drawing from a diverse palette of sounds, PVD's music features live instrumentation alongside analog synthesizers and vintage keyboards, straddling the boundaries of electronic music, jazz, and golden era hip-hop.
Written, recorded, produced, and mixed by Pat Van Dyke, this instrumental album is lovingly presented on gorgeous clear vinyl with an exclusive bonus 45 featuring remixes by John Robinson and Lux DeVille.
Best paired with a fine IPA.
Along with a rotating cast of NYC's finest musicians, PVD has brought his unique LIVE blend of raw funk & organic hip-hop to packed houses at The Blue Note, S.O.B's, NJPAC, The Knitting Factory, Southpaw, as well as other venues large & small-throughout NYC & beyond. Recent releases include PVD Breaks Volume I & II (original breakbeat series), a full length LP entitled: "Lux DeVille" with NJ emcee 8thW1, as well as a limited edition vinyl 7" with emcee John Robinson entitled "Miles & Trane"-a hip hop tribute to the two jazz legends. Full length John Robinson and PVD album set for early 2014 release on Brick Records.
