Up until recently, I was unaware of the artist known as Patrick Michel. Thankfully, a mutual friend linked me to some of his work and he’s been showing up steadily on my playlists ever since. The first song I came across was “Off The Shits,” an incredibly melodic, well-written and structured track that highlights all of Patrick’s capabilities as an artist.
Rapping, vocalizing, wittiness, all elements of versatility. With that being said, it was only natural that I dug deeper. Luckily for me, he wasn’t a one-off success – he actually had a lot more quality in the chamber than I could have anticipated. His latest album, Side Effects, is a cohesive, 10-track project with songs spanning several styles.
Hailing from my hometown of Brockton, Massachusetts, I can safely say that Patrick is representing the city, the sate, and the region very well. Side Effects features a wide range of production credits with a few features tossed in to compliment and bring the whole thing together. The plays are racking up for this release, and they’ll only go exponentially higher as time passes.
