Biotop proudly presents the second studio album from Patrick Zigon:'Due To Fog'.
Six years after his debut full-length,'The Alpha State', Zigon is back, releasing'Due To Fog' here on his own imprint. The German producer enchants with his signature dub-laden pads, hypnotic beats, dreamy synth-lines, and compelling percussion - but also hints at new directions with rough and abstract techno cuts sprinkled throughout. Containing ten organic compositions brimming with Zigon's trademark attitude and depth,'Due To Fog' is an emotional voyage between bright moments and dark.
Fog has always played an important role in Patrick Zigon's artistic life - at least since 1993, when Patrick moved to Lake Constance in the south of Germany. Proximity to the early'90s rave capitol of Zürich was Patrick's ticket to the colorful cosmos of electronic music - but an even deeper inspiration was perhaps the breathtaking nature of Lake Constance itself: during the lush and radiant summertime full of international visitors, and also in the dark, melancholic winter, devoid of tourists, when the lake is wrapped in a thick blanket of fog more often than not. While the sun dances with the fog's grey tendrils throughout the colder seasons, the misty embrace of Lake Constance's atmosphere provides Patrick with the comfort to explore his deepest creative urges.
As a result, the full-length emerged from the fog of Patrick's process somewhat spontaneously: it wasn't until all the tracks were finished and listened to in context that Zigon realized he had an album on his hands. Along with seven unreleased tracks,'Due To Fog' contains three of Patrick's most significant works from recent years:'Ich See' and'Vajinashun', previously released on Biotop, and'The End My Friend', issued by Etui Records. Patrick now brings his special brand of mystically foggy techno and house to the dance floors of the world - with an extended album tour and a brand new live rig in tow.
'Due To Fog' will be released in May 2017. For more information: www.biotop-label.net.
