‘Straight off the back of a fine new EP released just before Xmas and incredible run of shows over Christmas and New Year, Irish techno hero Matador is riding high and is ready to unleash a second EP of weapons on this new release. All the cuts on it have been road-tested to destruction at Timewarp, Lovelands, Awakenings, Verboten, Fabric and many other shows around the world.

Matador’s year started off with a very special ALL LIVE Loveland party celebrating the Amsterdam dance institution’s 20th anniversary and has already clocked up appearances at Fabric in London and Sankeys in Manchester so far this year.

‘BSunday’ kicks the EP off in moody style, with raw analogue lines unfolding over lively drums. Big percussive circles and tripped melodies also flesh out this killer groove. ‘DaHustle’ is then a more groovy thing with nimble bass notes, charming sense of atmosphere and colourful synth patterns running through the arrangement. The arpeggiated bass, when it lands, has sent floors into overdrive at all Matador’s sets of late.

‘I Gotcha’ takes cues from classic house with its pining cow bells, and the mid tempo drums rock back and forth as dark voices and spraying synths all work to get you shaking your backside. ‘Song 2’ then goes all deep and stripped back, with wooden hits, curious synth patterns and oodles of groaning bass before closer ‘Vagenda’ marries elastic beats and bass with sci-fi melodies, lots of thick texture and warm atmospheres.

Every track here is sure to do a fine job on the dance floor, and each one proves that Matador has many different but equally essential tricks up his sleeve.
