Patafunk is a Venezuelan singer-songwriter, producer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist. In 2008, Patafunk released his well-received debut album *Dubdelic*, merging the best of Latin and pop music. The song “Surferston feat. G2,” peaked at #2 on the Venezuelan billboard chart, Record Report, with Rolling Stone Latin America calling *Dubdelic* one of the best albums of the year for its distinctively pleasant, ocean-like sound.
Between 2008 and 2010, while working on his sophomore album *Playa*, Patafunk delivered multiple nation-wide tours throughout his homeland and championed his own radio show on contemporary music. However, Patafunk’s global sensibility and relentless drive for unity of sound was unstoppable. In 2010, he left his tropical coast of Caracas to take-on the international dynamism of the New York City music scene.
In 2011, Patafunk released his sophomore album, *Playa*. Emerging from the soil of his native Venezuela while brought to completion in Brooklyn, the album was featured in the iTunes "new and noteworthy" section. Much of the earlier features of *Dubdelic* remained, but with a bold grasp of hip-hop and house. The song "NegraChinaLatina" reached number one in Venezuelan radio and was featured in MTV Latin America. In 2015, Patafunk released “Free Your Feet,” a 6-track EP that compiled Patafunk’s singles from 2012-2014. The track on the EP entitled, ”Hit & Run! feat DaniBlau,” was also released as part of a nu-disco compilation by French label, New's Lighter Records.
Patafunk’s upbeat global sound has enlivened audiences at shows and festivals around the world, including SXSW, Ultra, CMJ, and Miami Art Basel. While living in Brooklyn, Patafunk has held residencies at various NYC staples like Soho House, Hotel Hugo, Schimanski (previously Verboten) and Le Bain. His latest creation, the album *High Life*, is a testament to Patafunk’s incredible range and genius as an artist. The album fuses reggae-house, future-reggaeton, and the best of New York’s multicultural ethos, creating a sound unlike any other. The highly anticipated album from Patafunk is set to release in the summer of 2018.
