Matthew Hodson Brighton Record Label: Solitude The New Album 'DETACH' Out 15th October 2017 at http://wwwmatthewhodson.com Sonic excursions, drenched in arrhythmic delays and swashes of reverb, which masterfully play with song structure, provoking the listener with familiarity and yet disconnection. “His sound instantly recalls some of the classic Skam output, from the atmospheric chord changes you might expect to hear from Boards Of Canada’s bank of synths to Bola’s sinewy beats” – Boomkat. Solitude’s first release comes from the Brighton based label manager and producer - Matthew Hodson - titled - Detach. The album expresses sonic excursions, drenched in arrhythmic delays and swashes of reverb, which masterfully play with song structure, provoking the listener with familiarity and yet disconnection – a defining output for the Solitude label. Beautiful, heart felt melodies are delivered through the playful use of synthesis and sound design - something Hodson is often approached for within the world of film and TV. The erratic yet minimal use of raw oscillators surface like buoyant objects on a rough sea of vast delays and reverbs. Matthew Hodson may be more recognisable from his previous pseudonym as BITBIN and one half of Fat Cat Records Knightstown - a long-time fixture of the UK’s electronic underbelly in which he brought his own brand of down-tempo, erratic, and often-nostalgic musical output. His reputation is characterised for his controlled fusion of both ambient and aggressive electronica while delivering attention to the most microscopic sonic detail.
