Patric Catani started to make music very early, in his teenager age
he used to program on his C64 Computer and used to 'rip' the old arcade
game music out of games. He continued to work on the homecomputer and
made his first Hardcore/Techno Gabba record in the age of 16 in the
year 1992 on his Amiga 500 computer.
He called himself E de Cologne these days and he influenced a lot of
other experimental and Breakcore orientated bands and musicians.
Very soon after his successful start he made a 10" remix for Mouse
on Mars, started several other projects and moved from Cologne to
Berlin. With his band EC8OR that he formed together with Gina V.
D'Orio he toured in the States and Japan several times and during the
years he released over 30 records on various labels like the old
Structure / Monotone, Praxis, Bastard Loud, Digital Hardcore Recordings,
Mille Plateaux, Wordsound / Black Hoodz and Grand Royal.
Since a few years he is working with the Puppetmastaz who also just released their debut LP "Creature Funk".
Candie Hank is a grotesque entertainment show with no limit, a
collision of Rock'n Roll, Moog influenced but harsh synthscapes
breakcore but Belly Dance Punk and Gabba like Proto Pop.
His debut LP "Kimouchi" just got released on Gagarin Records run by
Felix Kubin, who couldn't deny to release the Candie Hank's stuff and even
called it a 'landmark'. Candie Hank calls it Lubricant Sleazecore.
