British producer and techno legend Alan Fitzpatrick announces ‘Machine Therapy’, his first artist album in a decade. Featuring high-profile collaborations with LOWES, Lawrence Hart, Catrin Vincent, drum and bass star High Contrast and Kele, the frontman of Bloc Party, the twelve-track album lands on Anjunadeep on November 12.
“The album is called ‘Machine Therapy’ as, for me, the time I had in the studio was like a therapy session. Particularly with the pandemic; not knowing what was happening, what the future might look like, what might happen in the club scene; being able to get into the studio with no time constraints and just really pour my heart into making music really helped get me through the last year and definitely help keep my mental health in check. It was the perfect opportunity to sit in the chair, switch off from the world and create.” – Alan Fitzpatrick
There can be no doubting Alan Fitzpatrick’s position as one of the most influential electronic artists of the moment. A countless back roster of head-turning productions over the past decade has seen the Englishman’s profile continue to transition rapidly from the techno underground towards the electronic music mainstream, attracting significant attention from BBC Radio 1, Mixmag and Resident Advisor and elevating Alan Fitzpatrick to the position of global headliner.
When discussing the new album Fitzpatrick stated “I’m really proud of the finished product and to me, it feels like a proper LP; I think you can really hear different aspects of my personality and the emotions I was experiencing during the writing process. Some tracks are full of hope, while other tracks are very emotionally charged and some have quite a solemn feel to them… It’s a real emotional journey of sounds. Obviously, the sound is still very club-focused, as that’s my heritage, my sound, but I feel like I’ve explored the spectrum of electronic music with this album and pushed the boundaries in terms of the musical structure and format that I’m generally known for. I really hope that people can connect with the album on the same level in which it was created.”
