Patrick Zigon „Due To Fog“
Biotop proudly presents the second studio album from Patrick Zigon: Due To Fog.
Six years after his debut full-length, The Alpha State, Zigon is back, releasing Due To Fog here on his own imprint. The German producer enchants with his signature dub-laden pads, hypnotic beats, dreamy synth-lines, and compelling percussion – but also hints at new directions with rough and abstract techno cuts sprinkled throughout. Containing ten organic compositions brimming with Zigon’s trademark attitude and depth, Due To Fog is an emotional voyage between bright moments and dark.
Fog has always played an important role in Patrick Zigon’s artistic life – at least since 1993, when Patrick moved to Lake Constance in the south of Germany. Proximity to the early ’90s rave capitol of Zürich was Patrick’s ticket to the colorful cosmos of electronic music – but an even deeper inspiration was perhaps the breathtaking nature of Lake Constance itself: during the lush and radiant summertime full of international visitors, and also in the dark, melancholic winter, devoid of tourists, when the lake is wrapped in a thick blanket of fog more often than not. While the sun dances with the fog’s grey tendrils throughout the colder seasons, the misty embrace of Lake Constance’s atmosphere provides Patrick with the comfort to explore his deepest creative urges.
As a result, the full-length emerged from the fog of Patrick’s process somewhat spontaneously: it wasn’t until all the tracks were finished and listened to in context that Zigon realized he had an album on his hands. Along with seven unreleased tracks, Due To Fog contains three of Patrick’s most significant works from recent years: Ich See and Vajinashun, previously released on Biotop, and The End My Friend, issued by Etui Records. Patrick now brings his special brand of mystically foggy techno and house to the dance floors of the world – with an extended album tour and a brand new live rig in tow.
Due To Fog will be released in May 2017. For more information: www.biotop-label.net.

Big fan of Patrick’s work and this album is a true showcase of his talent and mastery of moody / funky electronic music. Loving the flow of this album as well as the concept and cover art. It all seems to fit perfectly. Lopov Leti, Out Of Touch, and Parallelwelt—wow! Thanks for this.
Excellent tracks, really enjoying these! Will support, keep them coming! Thanks again!
Dope album! What an elegant production, beautiful light shining in subtil darkness. „Paseo de los Melancolicos“ is timeless, the hypnotic beat of „Parallelwelt“ is superb.
Excellent album, melodies, funk, but also the sound design is superb.

Bravo Patrick! Nice album, thank you for sending.
I’m always a bit reluctant to albums. It’s difficult to focus on 10 tracks from one artist. But this album from Patrick is a nice exception. There’s not one track I dislike! In fact, all tracks are really great quality, never boring and very subtle and tastefull produced. Very well done!
great sounds patrick.
Very nice album from Pat! Will request the wav’s and have a proper listen as this is worth it. Totally!
My ears are enjoying this very much… great sounds and arrangements. Congrats!

Thank you for the nice, warm music!
Really good album, actually quite hard to say my favorite track. All of them are different way of musical trips. This is THE ALBUM!
Sincerely Patrick? Congratulations for your wonderful album, it’s a super travel through a lot of influences and ambiances. If I have really have to choose ones, I would say first of all dubby and atmospheric “Out of Touch“, then psychodelic „Parallelwelt“, and also „Damokles“ und „Ich see“ . Thank you very much for the music, can’t wait to play the tracks!
I like last 4 tracks, nice work, thank you!
Very nice production full support
Love them all!! As usual Patrick delivered quality, Paseo De Los Melancolicos, Damokles, Absurbistan are so goooooddddd!! Can`t wait to play them all xx
Very cool album indeed! Lots of really nice melodies and solid tracks. Will play a few of these for sure and look forward to listening to it in full. Thanks
what a big picture here! with every ingredient speaking the truth about why we love electroni cmusic: thy dynamics, the feel, the versatility. big one!
Man With No Shadow:
BIG! Always loving a bit of Zigon and this album totally brings it again. Really digging the slower tracks on this as well. Great work, thanks MWNS
Thanks for sending this, I agree with the overall opinion, every track on the album needs to be there. It’s not an easy task to achieve such a physical and dance floor oriented album with this much precision, most of the music on it is alive with melody and intelligent beats! There’s plenty of music I can use for my own sets, and the production level helps me to feel confident they will sound great.
very nice album. I like several tracks and will play them!
Quality release. Loving them. Thanks
Summer (Brendon Collins):

Absurdistan is great. Out of Touch too.
