Although Patrick roots are in Disco, this producer and writer have made more contribution to dance then anyone in his generation. This brother is amazing! I can’t remember when I have been dissatisfied with this producer. Some of my favorites is all of his collaborations with “Leroy Burgess” and all of his productions on ‘Universal Robot Band, Musique, Rainbow Brown, Bumblebee Unlimited and Wish. It is because of producers like this that I wanted to become a producer. Patrick was light years away. I’m still trying to figure out how did he create “The Bumblebee Unlimited” stuff. Leroy Burgess tried to tell me, but I just can’t get it. This is when producing was creating production for your audience. This is real history and therefore is truly a “Father of the Dance”.
