Mattr’s next release is a two-track full of electronica and breaks, released on his own imprint Loft & Sound, April 28th
Following his remix for Max Cooper, Mattr’s next releases are two electronica / breaks tracks on his own imprint Loft & Sound. With these two records Mattr continues to build out his crafted approach to electronica with two intricately layered and textured records. Tal features syncopated melodies, heavy bass and melancholic pads. Rand fuses granular synthesis and found sounds with delicate instrumental flutters to create an optimistic and atmospheric record.
Mattr is a leftfield house and electronica producer, DJ, visual artist and label owner from Birmingham. He’s had a busy 12 months with a remix of the classic house record by Mephisto (1992) followed by his own four track EP on the legendary Renaissance, two remixes for Berlin trio Akzenth, his first release on Balance Recordings and a remix for Max Cooper to round the year out. In between he’s produced several releases on his own imprint – Loft & Sound and has a remix for Grammy nominated Steven Weston for an upcoming release.
His releases have garnered support from Amé, Giulia Tess, Anja Schneider, Kelly Lee Owens, Max Cooper, Rodriguez Jr, & Laurent Garnier to name a few.
Mattr’s broad musical palette often draws him closer to the more emotive side of electronic music, finding deep resonance with forward-thinking artists like Max Cooper, 1-800 Girls, Baltra, Overmono, Fourtet, Otik and Radioactive Man, whom you’ll hear plenty of in his consistent & beautifully diverse mix series.
Mattr aka Matthew Clugston is a leftfield house, and techno producer from Birmingham, now living in London. With residencies dating back to his hometown at Code with Steve Lawler as well as supporting gigs for Sasha & Danny Tenaglia, Mattr shared decks with the likes of Tale of Us & Jamie Jones before hosting his own events with innovators Alex Banks, Maxxi Soundsystem and XXXY. It was from there that he made the move to Berlin to study music production & performance and where he’d form a friendship with label partner, Max Winstanley (Lewyn Stan) who he paired up with to launch their Helical Scan imprint.
