2010 release. One synthesizes a career spanning 12 years, of a debut in Jamaican reggae passing on to soul, rock, and even English folk. Patrice has tamed many styles in the course of four albums, rich in their colors and facets. The 13 tracks on One contribute to his discography of electric and homogeneous sounds. For this album, Patrice has incorporated spices from the four corners of the world: in London, he summoned a dozen violinists from the female orchestra Demon Strings, directed by Izzi Dunn (Gorillaz, Blur), with whom he had already worked on his album Nile. In New Jersey, he had worked with Grammy award-winning producer Commissioner Gordon who had already worked on his previous album. In Jamaica, he solicited old friends, like the legendary saxophonist Cedric IM Brooks and The Skatalites. He also included his new experiences with Sly And Robbie on the track "Nobody Else's." The entire album was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Amy Winehouse, The Kills) and by Patrice himself in his studio in Cologne, Supow Studio. As the artist himself explains: "I would like to avoid digital; I prefer analog. I treated the sound of this album the same way rappers used to treat samples, to give it a warm but modern aspect."
