'The Track That...' with Simon Patterson
For episode 8 of 'The Track That...', Tim Stark interviewed Simon Patterson from who we will see the release of the new Trance Nation mix compilation album coming Sunday.
The track that I wish I’d produced is Coldplay ‘Yellow’. Yellow is an amazing track lyrically with the right emotion and uplift.
The track that could make a grown man cry is Daughter ‘Tomorrow’. Pretty, haunting vocals with a sad chorus that gets you hooked.
The track that never fails to put a smile on my face is Michael Jackson ‘Billy Jean’. It’s so happy - you can’t help but smile.
The track that I’m playing every gig at the moment is Greg Downey & Bo Bruce ‘These Hands I Hold’. Really big vocal track from Greg. Good production and great arrangement.
The track that shoulda been in a movie is Sigur Ros ‘Sæglópur’. Just listen to it.
The track that is so perfect in its Original form it should never be touched by man nor remixer is U2 ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’. What could you do to make this better? It’s the epitome of perfection.
The track that changed my life were Red Light District ‘Did You Hear Me’. First record I ever bought after Judge Jules played it on BBC Radio 1.
The track that I’ve just put out there is Simon Patterson ‘So What’. This is slower than what I normally make and I didn’t care what people thought.
This month sees the release of Simon’s Ministry of Sound ‘Trance Nation album featuring 36 incredible tracks personally chosen and imaginatively mixed by the man himself, including no less than 7 global exclusives. Expect music from main stage stars such as Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Paul Oakenfold, Astrix, Sean Tyas and others, as well as the cream of the crop from trance’s Class of 2015.
Naturally, Simon’s own studio work is in no short supply either, including exclusively his remix of ‘Fire In The House’ from indie-rockers Hard-Fi, his forthcoming MoS cut ‘Drop The Bass’ and five other massive tracks & reworks.
Also expect the hottest ammunition from the world’s most prominent trance stables such as Perfecto Fluoro, Enhanced, Armada, Black Hole Recordings and VANDIT. It’s out on April 5th.
