Why this name?
My last name is actually Patneaude. Its French and likely pronounced in that manner. However, I was also told to pronounce it as Pat-node. + or - the (de). So, the name Patno, is a reflection of that. It suits me and it comes without a gimmick attached to it. What you see is what you get.
Do you play live?
I was invited to submit music for a mixtape (T.O.P / Syxx Synce) back in 2012. I submitted some music and ended up being slotted as the intro track. I was pretty proud of that.

Continuing from above I dropped some verse for the release party and got an even better reaction than I had anticipated.

Always been in and out of the cyper circles. I was a regular at a local hookah lounge. They'd ask me to get up and rock the mic for the crowd and they'd put me on over the DJs time. Got some good experience from that. Everything I performed was off the dome to whatever beat was provided at the time.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Well that's a two part question. It helped spread the music to more listeners in more areas and exposed different regions of the country and world to music they'd have never heard otherwise. The only negative aspect would be the effect that piracy has had on record sales. Smart artists know that their earnings come from actually performing though. So that percentage the labels were taking likely shifted into some of those profits to compensate. It might mean more touring, but it also means more exposure.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Absolutely. There's a lot that I have done and can do as an independent artist, but to not take advantage of such a platform if it presented itself would be foolish. At least if the numbers are right and you're not locked into something that keeps you from pushing the product as you would see fit. Creative differences and such.
