profile

Born in Malmo, Sweden, Patrik first started messing about with music making at around 15 years of age, originally influenced by early electro and industrial acts.
Him and early friend Staffan Ehrlin and older brother Niklas spent the first years of learning sequensing and arranging on Atari computers, samplers, tapedecks, and cheap synths & effect modules exploring ways of creating everything from EBM to electronic industrial music and all things dancemusic.
Production efforts started to turn more towards techno and become more consistent when "Headroom" was formed together with A.FluX and Henrik Larsson in early 1997.
In 1998 their first 12” record was released on the Swedish Stockholm label Loop records.
Since then releases have followed on respected labels such as Evil Deception, Planet Rhythm UK, Synewave NY, Cloned, Template, Submissions, Compound and many more.
Aside from Headroom, Patrik began a solo project in 1999, slightly more towards dark tribal compared to his collaborations.
Having worked for German and American labels he decided to set-up Native Diffusion Records, initially with a friend in Germany.
This focuses mainly on own productions, but also showcased remixes from the likes of Damon Wild, W.J Henze, Inigo Kennedy, Slobodan, Takaaki Itoh & Hardcell. As of 2003 and 2004 other talent started to appear on the label as well, respected producers and newcomers to the techno-scene alike.
2004 also saw Headroom´s debut release on the classic NYC Synewave label getting licensed to the "Exhibitionist" CD and DVD compilation, compiled and mixed by world renowned DJ Jeff Mills.
As the popularity of Patrik´s style of techno has increased over the last years, remix offers drop in frequently and one of the recent jobs was for fellow Swede Adam Beyer and his now classic Drumcode imprint, which shortly thereafter lead to a release of his own on the same label.
Skoog has also Dj’d from the beginning of his career and has played gigs in the UK, North- and South America and all across Europe.
In early 2005 a new project was found in "Agaric" where he explores the slower, deeper realm of techno and house.
With productions on his most recent well-received labelproject named "We Are", Patrik is gaining alot of appreciation from industry peers, and you have seen a big change in Dj performances as well as trackwork, where he excurts further and further away from playing the typical "hard sound" from which he was known, and more often than not he performs a deeper variety of tracks that hints of a new modern take on his early influences from the likes of Robert Hood, Wolfgang Voigt or Plastikman. In 2006, the Native Diffusion label is being put on ice, ending after six years at number 19 in the series;
a four track various artists e.p. entitled "End game".
