Patrik Parmar a.k.a. Patman (Get Ready!)
«Purveyor of deep, infectious dance grooves and a feel-good atmosphere, from the well known to the obscure.» - That’s how Patrik describes himself as a DJ.
Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy. Having grown up on his parents eclectic combination of world music all which became infused with his own love for hip-hop, jungle, dub, reggae and more, Patman ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful harmonies, heavy drums and thumping basslines... all on top of a pronounced foot-tapping rocksteady beat.
An active member of his local 68/69 reggae community, Patrik is a part of the Get Ready! Crew alongside Thomas Eiene, Joachim Sande and Jan O, a monthly clubnight in oslo AKA Bosslo.
«In Oslo where ravers swing, it’s the Get Ready! thing.» - His love for music goes beyond the spectrum of selecting tunes. As a cratedigger and DJ he has made plenty of new friends from all over the world who also enjoy collecting/ selecting the sounds of young Jamaica.
«For me, it’s all about mood and the groove... playing those chunes that get you rock and sway without you realizing it, regardless of tempo or release date, although mostly late 6Ts early 7Ts.»
