21 year old French / Montreal based DJ / producer Matveï returns with a brand new salsa house influenced 2-track record ‘FALL: Overdose / Rumba’ out through Kitsuné Musique on 9th November. This release follows on from his recent ‘Summer Collection EP’ and is part of a series of seasonal releases throughout the year.
Matveï explains: “For this 2 sided record I wanted to bring two very different worlds together. On side A ‘OVERDOSE’, I aimed at creating an emotional yet danceable R&B song, with Latin and Arabic influences. On the other hand, the idea behind side B ‘RUMBA’ was to compose a festival ready Salsa influenced House classic. On it, I also wanted to pay homage to the drill movement, which I’m a big fan of. Can’t wait to play them out as soon as COVID slows down.”
Lauded as the new generation of French electronic talent in his native country, Matveï’s trajectory is on the rise. Having been brought up on a steady diet of French hip-hop, house and bass, Matveï blends an exciting cocktail of house and urban club sounds, drawing inspiration from Kaytranada, Disclosure, Metro Boomin, Baauer and Sam Gellaitry.
Discovered by tastemaker Parisian label Kitsuné Musique having just turned 18, Matveï’s releases on the recent Kitsuné Parisien 6, Maison Kitsuné Compilation 18 and Parisien IV, introduced the young producer to an international audience, garnering accolades from tastemaker press like Clash, Earmilk, Acidstag et al, including fellow luminaries Martin Garrix and R3hab as well as official remixes for cult label, Future Classic.
