Canadian electronic dance music artist Pat Lok specializes in the house and R&B styles on his soulful compositions. Lok’s diverse and engaging sound has caught the finely-tuned ears of Kitsune, Pete Tsong’s PTSongs, BBC, and Beats 1 and he’s been praised by a number of notable outlets including The Fader, Okayplayer, and Majestic Casual.
The Hype Machine chart-topper and DJ now arrives with Mar Vista, the final single off of his debut album Hold On Let Go, which came out via Kitsune in June. Mar Vista pumps along with a deep bouncing house beat, sprinkled with cascades of reverberating electronics, ascending steps of synths, snappily clicking percussion, and glowing female vocals.
Lok explains that his LP Hold On Let Go, “…was written on tour… I think it reflects that exciting, unpredictable time. My only goal was to write music that would move me and I think that there’s something on this album for everyone.“
