Back in the early 2000s, when Trance & Progressive House ruled the day and illegal raves were morphing into promoted festivals, “UB Devoid” by Way Out West was one of the big guns in every DJ’s repertoire. It was dark, heavy & emotional and could hypnotize any festival crowd. Fast forward more than a decade & we find our good friend Pat Lok breathing new life into the Progressive House classic. Pat Lok’s modernized version eases back on the tempo but still lets loose with emotion. Pat balances nicely between dark Disco & throwback House while still maintaining a Progressive feel…just enough Progressive fire to fit nicely into a Timo Maas, Paul Oakenfold, Sander Kleinenberg, X-Press 2 or Sasha & Emerson DJ set from yesteryear. A beautiful modern throwback… Continue Reading
Our main man in Vancouver, Pat Lok, takes a swing at the fantastic tune “You & Me” by 2013 MVP contenders Disclosure and knocks it out of the park. Here’s what Mr. Pat Lok had to say about it:
“So I’ve had these vocals stuck in my head since hearing Baauer play his version at Sasquatch (it was massive). Unfortunately trap doesn’t get into my DJ sets unless I’m really out of my tree, so I took a shot at doing a version for all the house/disco/techno jockeys.”
A bootleg for the club with early DJ support from Bufi, Cosmo Baker, Lenno, The Magician, Moullinex + Viceroy.

Cashmere Cat has come to be known for his unique future pop sounds, and for good reason, being at the forefront of sound creation is no easy task. This Pat Lok edit fuses some of those futuristic sounds with the bouncing deep house synth bass lines that the internet is clamoring for at the moment, and the result is a pretty enticing edit.
Known from time to time to do the disco, Pat Lok is also not afraid to knock you on your ass. His latest concoction, called “Crazy Juice”, is a fireball shot full of high energy + wild warehouse vibes, sure to get you wasted on the dancefloor. 151 proof, indeed. If it were 4am and the rave was going strong, I don’t think anybody would be upset if a 30-minute extended version of “Crazy Juice” was all that was playing. And if that’s not enough to go off of, just check out what his peers are saying:
Volta Bureau – “Diggin this one. Real jackin”
Danny C90s – “BANGER”
Nacey (Misun) – “Love this! Basslines over everything forever”
Flash Mode – “Heavy man! Like Shadow Child on ecstasy”
Laberge – “brb taking an E”

• Pat Lok – No Shame (Goldroom Remix) A bottle rinses up on the shore. It is filled with euphoria, sunshine, and a crescendo from outer space. Our good buddy Josh (Goldroom) keeps pumping out instant classics that will make your soul glow.
• Luther Vandross – I Wonder (SAH Re-Froth) SAH was foraging in a long forgotten place between space and time and stubbled upon a funky ball of tits. He had the funk, and had to keep the funk alive. It’s the spawn of a new time where light up dance floors glisten off a tan butt poached up on a lengthy pair of stems.
