Senza Fine (Mondo Cane)
There seems to be no limit to what Patton can do and while his expansive career trajectory is difficult to express on paper, the brief biography which follows will probably turn obsessive Patton fans onto a few projects they never knew existed. Mondo Cane is Mike's point of view about Italian Classics, with a little help of Roy Paci and superb orchestra.

Activate (brand new single)
When the Berlin quartet played their last show at the Big Day Out Festival, Australia in 2000 everyone was watching: The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, The Clash's Joe Strummer, Foo Fighters and Primal Scream on the side of the stage. The band finally dissolved in the wake of MC Carl Crack’s death just days before September 11th 2001. Additionally, a brand new single “Activate" has been confirmed for May 17th and will be released through the band’s own label Digital Hardcore Recordings. Atari Teenage Riot are also treating fans to a free remix by the LA based dubstep genius The Builder
Let the revolution begin.
