Acclaimed electronic producer Matthew Hodson presents his exciting new project, MATTHS, with 'Velocet' released on FatCat Records' sub-label FCR on 17 May 2019. With his debut MATTHS release, the Brighton-based artist presents two stunning, atmospheric soundscapes 'Velocet' and 'Loop' which both immediately captivate the listener with their masterful, brooding beats. Using a bespoke modular synthesizer setup, MATTHS has designed and compiled a unique musical instrument that enables the creation of textures and tones specific to personal creative concepts.
The title track 'Velocet' is a dynamically charged sonic excursion that keeps on building throughout to a powerful crescendo, providing a clever balance of familiarity and disconnection. 'Loop' complements the title track perfectly, an ambient yet powerful cut that develops with layers of rhythm and melody, drenched in arrhythmic delays and swashes of reverb.
Recent MATTHS performances include opening for Wire; supporting Alex Banks (Monkeytown Records), Ulrich Schnauss and Rival Consoles (Erased Tapes). MATTHS has worked with the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop on their new material at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios. In May, MATTHS will play at the Superbooth Festival in Berlin.
MATTHS is supported by leading electronic musicians including Steve Mac (These Machines / Rhythm Masters), Tim Exile, and Alex Banks.
