GROUNDISLAVA


BIO: Emerging from the endless summers of Venice, CA to teaming up with Shlohmo, Jonwayne, D33J, RL Grime and more to form the Wedidit crew, Jasper Patterson aka Groundislava has transformed from bashful video gamer to full-fledged composer. The son of Michael Patterson (who directed A-Ha’s standout music video “Take On Me” and Paula Abdul’s “Opposites Attract”), Groundislava has roots that draw from 80s nostalgia, TV and pop culture that grow and transform into the 21st Century aesthetic of electronic music. Recently tapped for official remixes of Slugabed and Shlohmo as well as Kutmah’s Brownswood compilation, Groundislava returns with the ‘Feel Me’ LP, the follow-up full-length to his self-titled 2011 debut. A mature step for the artist, ‘Feel Me’ showcases Groundislava’s unique sensibilities for developing sweeping soundscapes, luscious backdrops and somber tracks in a distinct sound all his own. The subdued groove and melancholic melodies of tracks like “Suicide Mission” featuring ghostly vocals from Baths and “Bottle Service” featuring Shlohmo balance the big room dynamics and technicolor soundscape of tracks like “Olympia 2011? and the bass heavy boom of “Cool Party”. On others, like “TV Dream” featuring the enigmatic Clive Tanaka, Groundislava composes an ebullient ode to a friendship’s inception, soaking it in summery vibes and phantom playfulness. ‘Feel Me’ will be available August 28th on Friends of Friends. Cool to him
