Candie Hank is one of the monikers of Berlin based producer, performer and entertainer Patric Catani. Having started to make Gabber and Hardcore Techno in the early 1990s under the name of E-De Cologne
by the age of 16 he is definitely is a major influence on good parts of today Breakcore-craze and many artists within the field of experimental techno. Catani is also known for illustrious acts like Ec8tor
and more recently the Puppetmastaz
. As Candie Hank he presents himself as a grotesque one-man entertainment show with no limit – a collision of Rock'n Roll, Moog influenced but harsh synthscapes, Breakcore but Belly Dance Punk and Gabber-like Proto Pop. His debut LP Kimouchi
was released on Gagarin Records, the label run by Felix Kubin, who called the album a 'landmark'. Candie Hank likes to call his music Lubricant Sleazecore. Recently he released material on french Wwilko label and in the near future will put out his next album on russian Messer Chups' Label Solnze Records. There is much more material to be released soon and a whole bunch of songs from Candie's 'live only' material.
