After a standout year in 2016, which included a plethora of great music including a huge remix for Mendo on Deeperfect, it was clear we had to get Matteo Gatti back for a full EP! Fans of Matteo will instantly recognise his stripped back grooves and attention to detail on this release.
The title track, My Sun, pulls no punches. It gets the ball rolling with intricate and precise percussion flourishes which adorn a heavy analogue back-beat. Deep toms bring an effortless minimal groove to the forefront before a memorable vocal takes center stage and sets the scene for a heads down ride ahead.
On remix duty is the man of the moment, Dennis Cruz, and as usual he brings the heat to this track. Cruz keeps the vibe of the original but turns My Sun into a more peak time affair. The addition of jacking drums and a heavy bassline stamp this with the signature sound of a man at the top of his game.
The B-side features another original work by Matteo in the form of an atmospheric minimal cut, aptly named Medusa. He shows once again that he is a master in the art of drum programming with a hypnotic rhythm section enveloping the dance floor from the outset. A looping vocal is weaved in and out, paired with a huge analogue noise effect that takes over momentarily as the tension rises before everything drops back into place and the groove takes back control.
