Patrick Russell

Patrick Russell has been present on Detroit’s electronic music scene since the early ’90s, DJing Chicago house and Detroit techno at various warehouse parties across Michigan. Appearances at the city’s Detroit Electronic Music festival followed in 2001 and 2008, and he was even picked to warm up for Jeff Mills when the techno legend made his Detroit stop during his One Man Spaceship tour.

Over the last decade, Russell has also been distributing his own limited edition mix cassettes and CDs via his own Mentalux imprint, and started to gain interest in Europe after collaborating with fellow Michigan man Seth Troxler on a 12-inch for Circus Company. The resulting three tracks reference Chicago, Berlin and Detroit, working a low slung house vibe on both “Doctor Of Romance” and “Last Date,” and electro on the rough and raw groove of “Love Spray.” Since then, he’s been hard at work on new solo material.
