How was your experience on the new Ear Candy Music?Let us know!
Pat Van Dyke is a drummer, composer, producer, and band leader. Equally comfortable behind the drum kit, as he is penning compositions at the Fender Rhodes or guitar, PVD balances the rhythmic intensity of true-school hip hop with the rich harmony & refreshing subtlety of jazz. Drawing from a diverse palette of sounds, Pat’s music features live instrumentation alongside analog synthesizers, lush horns, and vintage keyboards, straddling the boundaries of electronic music, jazz, and golden era hip-hop.
Pat's music has been praised by tastemakers and DJs around the globe such as Gilles Peterson, Bobbito Garcia, & DJ Spinna, as well as being featured on such TV networks as FOX, NBC, MTV, VH1, & Comedy Central, and providing the soundtrack to viral videos from the likes of VICE Magazine & Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”.
Along with a rotating cast of NYC's finest musicians, Pat has brought his unique LIVE blend of soul-jazz & organic hip-hop to packed houses at The Blue Note, S.O.B's, NJPAC, and The Roxy Hotel as well as other venues; large & small, throughout NYC & beyond. Recent releases include two full length LPs; ‘Technicolor HI-FI’ (Cotter Records), ‘Right On Time’ (Jakarta Records - Germany), a limited edition vinyl 7" with (mc) John Robinson entitled "Miles & Trane": a hip hop tribute to the two jazz legends, a 7” Vinyl Release with the legendary DJ Spinna, as well as 2 volumes of his essential breakbeat compilations with Redef.
