Wear Patterns, a trio comprising of lifelong friends Francesca Harding and Gene & James Bautista of Beat Ventriloquists, is a several-years-in-the-making project that almost never happened. The childhood friends with a common interest in music, lost touch over time, only to reconnect a few years ago. Harding had developed a career in music, becoming one of the most in-demand DJs in Los Angeles, touring the globe from Mexico City to the UK, as well as hosting 90.7FM’s influential taste-making radio program Soundwaves. Beat Ventriloquists made their own international splash through their original productions and remixes for such acclaimed artists as Tokimonsta & Gavin Turek, Goapele, She Wants Revenge, and more. A chance encounter rekindled the trio’s friendship…. and Wear Patterns was born.
“Tease”, the group’s lead single, features vocals from Chicago-born and Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter twins Nick & Navi, who inject the track with classic 90s R&B swagger and true-school Jamaican dancehall toasting.
