An inventive range of playful, organic, electronica. Chilled downtempo grooves, funky upbeat melodies, ''Patch Of Paradise'' is the third album from Tim Taylor, aka Roland From Poland, who acquired the name following three years spent living and working in Koszalin, Poland. Previously based in Bristol, England, he was one half of former pioneering duo Earth Beat Synphonic, who performed live electronic dance music and came to the attention of the late John Peel at the BBC.

The second, ''Asylum Seeker'', was released in 2003, in partnership with ''Don''t Touch Recordings'', a label established by members of ''Alpha'', who in turn, were signed to Massive Attack''s ''Melankolic'' label.
It followed Tim''s return DJ trips to Poland, collaborations with jazz musicians and time spent hanging out in studios in and around Bristol.
