Here is the inaugural release on Stephen Bishop’s (Basic House) Opal Tapes vinyl offshoot label Black Opal. Patricia’s ‘Body Issues’ was originally released on Opal Tapes as a cassette and now receives a welcome limited wax edition, housed in a screen-printed sleeve complete with screened insert and download code


Patricia’s warm, fuzzy post-techno-house slots neatly with the Opal Tapes aesthetic on his debut album, ‘Body Issues’. Six tracks come off like a boosted 1991 or Huerco S, pushing malleable bass hits below swirling streaks of melody bursting with ferric quality. There’s firm parallels to be made here with Anthony Naples, albeit with a noisier bent in ‘Hissy Fit’, whilst on ‘Melting’ juicy acid forms over a brittle jack track and the sweet-but-slamming ‘Jospehine’ and ‘Plural’ appear like some GHB fantasy flashback of a warehouse rave in New York’s halcyon house daze.
