Sonic Agenda’s Elan Rochbert, a classically-trained musician, came to Make It New on March 31st to see Patrice Baumel. Suffice it to say, he was impressed.

Make it New has stood strong against the storm of commercial EDM for years, showcasing phenomenal up-incoming talent and hosting some of the most influential names in underground music.

Patrice Bäumel brought us on a voyage through planes of existence. One moment the music was a throbbing heartbeat of percussion, compelling my feet and hips to move. The next moment it would shift, lifting the overwhelming drums and replacing them with harmonies like velvet.

For more in-depth coverage of the evening–including high praise for our resident DJs Coralcola and Baltimoroder–click through to Sonic Agenda. Follow Elan on Twitter: @ERochbert.
