'Patterns' is the debut album from the much-championed UK electronica artist, Ambassadeurs.
Ambassadeurs widescreen sound spans bass heavy, ethereal electronica, through to dark ambient moments, and shimmering, melodic techno. His supporters to date include The Fader, Mixmag, Vice, iD, Clash, XLR8R, This Is Fake DIY, Dancing Astronaut, The Sound You Need, Earmilk, Radio 1 (Phil Taggart, Monki, SOHN, and Huw Stephens), 6 Music and a host of global tastemaker blogs. In addition to releases including 'Can't You See' EP, 'Forever' EP, and the 'Trouble' EP, Mark's remixed for labels including Tru Thoughts, Ninja Tune, Moshi Moshi, Fat Cat, Wah Wah 45s and others.
Over the past two years, Ambassadeurs has worked hard to develop his live set - one which marries his leftfield sound with surrealist videography - winning diverse support slots with the likes of ODESZA, Danny Brown, Machinedrum, Gold Panda, and more, his forthcoming US tour will see him join Mad Decent's Daktyl - evidence of Ambassadeurs increasingly wide appeal, and a follow-up to his debut 30 date support tour with the aforementioned ODESZA.
