Canadian House producer Pat Lok whips up a sever warehouse vibe on his latest reMix. Taking on Trigger, the current single from New York songstress and multi-instrumentalist Sirma. The Turkish singer’s original is a beautiful and intricate wall of sounds, a wall which Lok knocks down and re-builds with an infectious groove.
Slightly more low key than some of his previous mixes, Lok concentrates on dancefloor essentials with this one. Serving up a pure hypnotic track comprising of deep bass, a nice line in organ riffs and a killer piano hook. this is the kind of track that you can stick on, close your eyes, and just see the strobe lights. Or maybe we’ve just got something wrong with our brain? Either way, Lok’s reMix of Trigger is a House-head’s dream.

Australian ElectroPop duo Back Back Forward Punch continue in their quest to have everyone cool on the planet reMix them. Having already tussled with the likes of MiGHty mOUse, Dublin Aunts and The Penelopes, the Aussies then set their sights on Canadian House wizard Pat Lok for reMix duties on their latest single. The track’s called Solid Gold, and any new Pat Lok reMix is a cause for a party. So, yeah, let’s party.
But what do we have here? This isn’t a Lok-ian House tune riding a 4/4 kick. What we’ve got here is a board mix of 90s dance and Bristol beat (and yes, being from Bristol, this makes me very happy). In fact, this might be my favourite Pat Lok track to date, or maybe it’s just that the sun is shining and here’s a lazy vibe going on that the track’s slick mix of laid back 90s Hop Hop beats and warm Chicago keys feeds into. Either way the warm bass is filling my head and the shuffling hats are shaking my shoulders and I’m loving it. Enjoy.

Prick up your ears, there’s a new Pat Lok reMix in town, This time the Canadian funkmaster has tackled the latest tune from Australian breezy Indie-Electro dup Olympic Ayres. The track’s called Control and is taken from their forthcoming début EP, Leisureplex. What does floaty poolside Pop sound like in Lok’s astoundingly groovy hands? Check it out below ad Pat Lok brings the House.
This one is all about the stabbing House hook and the subby bassline. Combining with a slick early 90s House vibe, the bass and riff whip up a deceptively complex and utterly infectious floorfiller. ‘Deceptively complex’ is actually a pretty good overview of the track, intricate House beats, multiple layers of keys and sweet strings all ride that dubby bassline, weaving in and out of each other but the end result feels effortlessly uncomplicated. Add to this totally compelling House anthem Olympic Ayers’ summertime vocal and you’ve got a pretty irresistible track.

For this one he’s teamed up with the voice of the moment Patrick Baker for a warm and relaxing groove, perfect timing now that the sun if finally shining here in the UK. Sit back, hit play, and sink into what Pat & Pat have served up.
Pat’s (the second one) voce drifts across this deep deep House tune with an R&B lilt while Pat the first lays down a glorious subby bassline and a Garage-y beat. With a touch of vocal modulation and some enigmatic keys thrown into the mix, Lok brings the hot summer nights vibe to the track; the end result being something smooth, soulful and dancefloor friendly, but only for friendly dancefloors.

There’s a reMix from Torontonian master Pat Lok up in this bitch! Possibly his deepest tune to date, Lok delivers they hypnotic dance and warehouse moods with this monster tune.
Pat Lok effortlessly blends a little Chicago, a little Deep and a little Funky into one undulating, bass heavy, floorfiller. Riding on a growling sub, the track gleefully plays with vocal snatches, ecclectic snyths and unexpected twists and turns. All locked together with a watertight groove. One of the best House tunes of the year so far.

Indonesian outfit Mjolnir’s new single Just A Boy was released this week on Jerry Bouthier’s Continental Records. We already posted the JBAG dub of the track. Now it’s time to check out what Canadian Housemeister Pat Lok has in store for the tune. It the mix we were most looking forward to hearing, Pat’s been on a roll recently, and he’s kept it going right here.
Taking the track deeper and groover than the JBAG’s version. Lok drops a warm summertime sound comprising a solid beat, and fidgety but utterly infectious subby bassline and layers of Tropical keys. The end result is somehow more laid back, yet more dancefloor destroying that the excellent original. That’s the magic of Pat Lok

Hot on the heels if his collaboration with Bear Mountain, Same Hearts, Canadian producer Pat Lok is already on to the next thing with this brand new tune. Move Slow is already getting spun by the likes of Moon Boots, Anna Lunoe, Don Rimini, The Phantom’s Revenge, Cassian and Justin Faust just to name a few. Check out why.
Featuring vocals from fellow Canadian alo, Move Slow is an ecclectic House track with a slight Disco groove to ease you into it. alo’s Jazzy vocals lend the track a raw, live feel to it, almost as if Lok was dipping in and out of the sweeping synths and percussive keys in real time. It’s a tune that really draws you in to it, it’s not really like anything else around right now, and that’s testament to Pat’s skills. Intelligent House music, a real treat.

Canadian producer Pat Lok and Bear Mountain’s Same Hearts has been out just over a week now and in that week has been getting a fair amount of play ‘round these parts. It’s set to see even more spins now on the form of of the brand new reMix from our own Chilly Disco don Box Of Wolves, Stay tuned for more Box Of Wolves news and we announce his new single in the coming days.
In the meantime he’s whipped up a jackin’ House tune with this track. It’s got a nice retro swing to it courtesy of some thick synth stabs running throughout that give the vocals a buoyant quality. All this resides upon a deep bassline constructed from pulsating and echoing synths. It’s as atmospheric as it is dancefloor friendly. Perfect for that Deep House portion of the night. A true meeting of talents.
