PAT 1 and PAT 2 are two records that Sofianne of Groovy Record in Paris alerted me to, one in April 2011 and the other in June 2013. I spotted PAT 3 on the Discogs website in March 2015. The Congolese band don’t figure anywhere else in this discography.

AIT’s own master catalogue is untrustworthy regarding other titles on the label. It lists two songs for each of PAT 1 to Pat 5 and a single title for PAT 6, so 11 songs in total, making it difficult to say which ones actually made it to vinyl. To further add to the confusion the two songs released as being by Orch Zeke Monano are listed as being by Johnny Bokelo Essence.
