Welcome to The Top 5 Records Podcast Episode 6 with Edson Sabajo (Patta)
Edson grew up in Amsterdam and through his love of music, specifically Hip-Hop worked in the Amsterdam branch of famed New York Hip-Hop shop (and label and distributer) Phat Beats.
It was there that he linked with Guillaume Schmidt with whom he launched Patta as a sneaker and streetwear boutique in 2004. In the years since the brand has gone on to become of the freshest and most forward thinking brands in streetwear fashion.
Edson discusses the impact of music on his style and on the brand, his life as a DJ and travelling the world buying sneakers and records. His infectious energy is clear to hear as he enthuses about his 4 hobbies; music, football, fashion and women.
