Grace | Skip to main content
Patrice Bäumel


The latest instalment of Kompakt’s inimitable Speicher series features what is also the zenith of Patrice Bäumel’s recent ‘Global Underground’ entry, expertly placed in the mix to deliver a spectacular emotional payoff with a breakdown almost overwhelming in its intensity. This impact is hinged around a pulsing synth hook that’s artfully embellished with white noise that grants it a particularly organic quality, synced with its bassline to leave an impression of ebb and flow. ‘Grace’ is slow and brooding and extremely evocative, from A DJ/producer whose strength lies with emotional resonance that is visceral and in the moment, instead of being overthought.
