12th Planet – Ptera Patrick EP
Sep 2011 27

Ptera Patrick is not only alliteration in its spelling but, also a paradox in the name itself. Ptero derives from the word Pterodactyl, and the name Tera Patrick comes from the adult film legend, “Tera Patrick”. The title was created on Valentines Day 2008, and was meant to show the duality of female and common slang word for females “birds”. Although the artist “12th Planet speaks of a prehistoric bird, the name conjures up images of reptilian birds attacking defenseless mammals. And as quirky as the name sounds, it is a great way to explain how the tune is divided by duality. On one hand, the beginning of the tune is melodic, beautiful, and mystical. On the other hand, the second half of the tune is very ferocious.

Hell-o, is a culmination of Miami and Brixton bass, influenced beats. It’s a sub monster, created by the beat scientist 12th Planet. With 3 step snares, and 808 subs that will blow a house down better than a big bad wolf, Hell-O is a tune not worth missing out on!
