Matt Flores / Indigo Child (Snippet) by Room With a View published on 2012/06/11 18:36:07 +0000 At the time of reading these lines, you probably know already what values Room with A View has been representing for three years now: club music that aims to survive the test of time, music that transports a strong identity & emotional content, music that ignores hype & trends, rooted in a tradition of Black Music influences and transporting a hybrid vision of genres & definitions. These are qualities that our family of artists have represented proudly all along the way and our Dusseldorf friend, Matt Flores, is no exception to our artistic mottos. Despite the fact that Matt started his sound experiments nearly 20 years ago, we remember discovering his talent for hybrid club music in early 2000's when his Metaworld album appeared on the now defunct Combination imprint, combining his love of the Black Music tree with a futuristic vision, flirting with UK Garage & Detroit soundscapes. The man always loved bass with a big B & demonstrated it many times in his discography. This is how his work naturally found its way to respected labels such as Compost, Deeper Shades or Farside, displaying also the versatility of his sound. 2012 looks like a busy year for Matt with releases coming on the new label Visky, the mysterious Love Unlimited vinyl-only imprint or the always vivid Liebe Detail. All this in between other projects touching on interdisciplinary art: contemporary dance & theatre, which always keep Matt's open mind hungry. Amongst all this activity, Matt nevertheless kept 2 very personal tracks on his hard drive to present to Dairmount 1 year ago. It didn't take long for our A&R guru to fall in love with Heading On, an irresistible deep house groover enchanted by the harpist vibes & voice of Meike Rath (who took part in sessions with Matt). The track became an instant favourite of Dairmount's DJ sets and has been played from Istanbul to Amsterdam since then. The same applied to The Fields, a fierce & ballsy hypnotic number echoing Matt's love for Detroit & Chicago House vibes. These 2 weapons of choice have been joined more recently by two other excellent pieces of deepness : Indigo Child and In Between Days, two catchy late night nuggets of the highest order that can find their place in sets & playlists of many tasty DJs.
