Pat Van Dyke is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and band leader. Equally comfortable behind the drum kit, as he is penning compositions at the Fender Rhodes or guitar, PVD balances the rhythmic intensity of true-school hip hop with the rich harmony & refreshing subtlety of jazz. Pitchfork calls Pat’s most recent LP; “Hello, Summer” an “album that comes to feel something like Count Basie directing a big band dedicated to lost Roy Ayers compositions; it is highly, almost restrictively controlled, but nonetheless dedicated to the funk." Drawing from a diverse palette of sounds, Pat’s music features live instrumentation alongside analog synthesizers, lush horn arrangements, and vintage keyboards, straddling the boundaries of electronic music, jazz, and golden era hip-hop. Praised by tastemakers and DJs around the globe such as Gilles Peterson, Bobbito Garcia, & DJ Spinna, as well as being featured on such TV networks as VICE, HBO, FOX, NBC, MTV, VH1, & Comedy Central, and providing the soundtrack to viral videos such as Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”, the future is bright for this prolific composer / producer.
