Club Queen – Super limited white vinyl out now!!

Bateman-club-queen-1500

Somehow it’s been two years since Tic Tac Toe boss Patrick Bateman stepped up on his own label for a full release, but thankfully he now returns with a new single ‘Club Queen’ – complete with remixes from Frank Haag, Billy Johnston & Gennaro Mastrantonio – that reasserts his authority as the label’s finest exponent.

In original form ‘Club Queen’ is a deliciously deep number with ripples of chords rolling over its face, plenty of atmospheric ambiance and a slight sense of eeriness. It’s slow and purposeful, full of melting sounds and gentle rhythms and when the hi-hats land to complement the kick mid way through, it really drives on and takes you with it to the edge of the cosmos.
