Oli Patten's scratch happy mix takes in party gems from Hip Hop, Funk, Soul, Disco, Rock n Roll, Reggae, House and everything in between. Since picking up his first West End residency in 2001, he has played at festivals in the Alps and Croatia, beach parties in Thailand, art galleries in London, dingy pubs in Hackney, Ibiza Rocks after-parties in San Antonio, private islands in Norway and every other spot with some speakers and a dance floor that you could think of.
He was the founding resident of the infamous Wax On parties, which DJ Mag voted second best club night in the UK after Fabric, and has played alongside the biggest acts in the world, including 2Many DJs, Justice, DJ Yoda, Roni Size, Dizzee Rascal, Human League, DJ Shadow, Hot Chip, Erol Alkan, Disclosure, Public Enemy, Jazzy Jeff and Tiga.
In 2015 he’s supported acts as diverse as Julio Bashmore, Craig Charles and Talib Kweli, and will be playing corporate parties at Shoreditch House and Aqua Shard, while making time for some carefully selected private gigs throughout Europe. He also has London residencies at venues like The Arts Club (Mayfair), Prince of Wales (Brixton) and Hoxton Square Bar.
If you can’t find him behind the decks, look on the dance floor.
