Transcript 12 MARCH 26, 2006 www.houstonvoice.com HOUSTON VOICE eclipse Knapp and film star shine at SoBe's White Party DJ KNAPP, continued from Page 11 also remixed several White Party benefit CDs and others in the Global Groove and Party Groove series. Knapp has also created original remixes for Gioia, Funky Green Dogs, Lonnie Gordon and R&B songbird Amerie. For mix discs, he turns in a list of potential tracks a few months in advance and "crosses his fingers" in hopes of getting permission from labels to include songs. This time around. Knapp says he actually had to narrow down from more than 20 available tracks. IT'S LIKELY YOU'LL HEAR A FEW of those favorites during Knapp's local White- Party performance at South Beach nightclub. It's not exactly Miami, but has proven to be one of the year's most popular events. "I always enjoy playing there. Everybody's so hospitable," Knapp says of the club. "They've even given me clothes for the baby before. I got a little South Beach onesie. Houston has it together in terms of getting people out and longevity. There's always a great crowd, always a great turnout. It's always been fun." On a larger scale, Knapp has been around long enough to notice inevitable- changes in the national circuit-party scene — not always for the better. But he does feel things are changing. "Many of the parties had become, over time, much more of a marketing scheme and an operation. People built up much more into those parties. They became more intense — a lot of expectations," he says. "Anticipation, I would say, sometimes creates a little too much intensity — DJs playing along with that, sometimes not remembering, 'Hey, it's a party Lighten up, have fun.' That's what I think sometimes is missing. "(But) there are always parties that stand out because they achieve that level of just plain fun, joy, a little bit more of a convivial atmosphere, more conversation between people. The intensity wears off." The toughest audience to please, however, remains at home. "(Ryan and Kira) are not particularly turned on by my music. They'd rather watch Sesame Street and hear the songs on there." says Knapp, adding after a pause, "Don't worry, everybody — I won't be doing any Sesame Street remixes." Judging by his illustrious output over the past two decades, it's likely even that would get folks shimmying under the spotlights. Getting to know Brad Patton Adult film star skates through weekend gigs ByJOEYGUERRA BRAD PATTON HAS COME A LONG way from his religious upbringing in Melbourne, Australia. Since leaving the land down under, Patton has become a champion ice skater and eventually glided into the world of adult films. Now a Buckshot/Colt Studio Group exclusive, Patton recently filmed Manly Heat in Lake Powell, Ariz. He hits Houston for a series of shows, autograph sessions and bartending gigs, Friday through Sunday. In between shooting film scenes on speedboats and training for the Out Games in Montreal, Patton took time to answer a few serious — and silly — questions: HOUSTON VOICE: You say your father was the "original crocodile hunter."

BRAD PATTON: I have always been big on traveling to exotic locations. I love a bit of adventure and roughing it in the outback. It is the schoolboy within who wants to go out and find hidden treasure, which I definitely got from my dad. VOICE: Your childhood included stints in several countries: Australia, Sweden, Finland. Which one do you remember most vividly? PATTON: It would have to be Sweden. That is where I really grew up from ages 14 through 22.1 think I identify myself more Swedish that anything else for that reason. At least I used to. Now, I just see myself as a citizen of the world. VOICE: Why do you think ice-skating became such a passion for you? PATTON: It is difficult to describe the amazing feeling of freedom that you have when you fly across the ice, when the beauty of the movement just completely overwhelms you with emotion. I don't know anything else that can give me that feeling, except for love. VOICE: Tell me about your first realization that you were gay. PATTON: It was a long process for me, over a number of years. Coming from a religious family, I think that is to be expected. It was not easy at first for me, but once I had accepted myself, it made me that much stronger and confident. VOICE: Do you remember seeing your first porn movie? If so, when and what was it? PATTON: Oh gosh, I would have had to been about 21,1 guess. I don't remember the film, but I do remember that Rex Chandler was on the cover. I thought he was so hot! VOICE: At the time, did you ever think it was something you might do for yourself? PATTON: Oh no, I don't think I did, but I am sure I fantasized about it. But what gay boy didn't? VOICE: How do you handle shooting a scene with someone you're not attracted to? PATTON: I act. VOICE: What's the biggest misconception about the porn industry and porn stars? PATTON: That they are all somehow Buckshot/Colt Studio film star Brad Patton spends the weekend slinging drinks and performing live at JR's Bar & Grille, Meteor Lounge and South Beach. bad people. There are bad people in all walks of life. I have, however, had the great fortune to work with to work with some of the most wonderful people in the industry. VOICE: You performed with Disney on Ice for several years. Who was the sexiest character? PATTON: It would have to be Tarzan, who I portrayed. You know, just a loin cloth — and with my bulge, you can imagine how hard it was for them to keep it under a PG rating. VOICE: You're currently training for the OutGames in Montreal. What inspired you to tackle that goal? PATTON: I competed in the Gay Games In Sydney four years ago, and it was just a wonderful experience. I chose the OutGames this time, though, as it seems a bit more challenging in the figure-skating event. I am training very hard at the moment. VOICE: Tell me about some of the other competitions you've participated in and the awards you've received. PATTON: I actually finished my amateur competitive career 11 years ago. So, 10 years older and about 20 pounds more muscle, this is a big challenge for me to come back and do this. At age 18,1 was the junior champion of Sweden and spent three years on the national team before turning pro and joining my first ice show. VOICE: You're working this weekend in Houston. What's the best way to get a big tip? PATTON: Give a big smile and never forget your manners. VOICE: How do you handle the tons of guys who flirt with you at these events? Don't even try to deny it. PATTON: Just be polite as you can, always smile, once again, and always give people your time and attention. My fans are so great and write me all the time at bradpatton.net. I always try to treat them with the utmost respect, as they do me. VOICE: So many to choose from, but what do you think is your best physical feature? PATTON: This changes all the time, but right now I think it is my stomach. I am now working on, not a six-pack, nor an eight-pack, but a 10-pack! I hope to have it by the end of July. With all the training I am doing at the moment, I think I can do it. VOICE: You have so many different things going on at the same time. How do you maintain a balance and still find time for a personal life? PATTON: I like being busy. When I have nothing to do. I procrastinate and end up getting nothing done. I will be going to Gay Disney in June for a short weekend holiday from my hectic schedule. I can't wait for that! VOICE: Ever been to Texas? If so, how do the guys here rate with those around the world? PATTON: I have been to Items before, about eight years ago. I had a great time, and I do remember the guys being so hot and friendly I can't wait to be back in Texas!
