    DESCRIPTION

    Revolutionary artist and DJ Matador presents his exciting debut release for Hot Creations ​Wildside this July​. ​It features two contrasting tracks that stay true to the ethos of the label synonymous with White Isle hedonism.
    "I've been playing with the Hot Creations/Paradise crew for a few years now, so it was about time to deliver. I wrote this EP last summer in the height of Ibiza action. It started it in a hotel room and finished at home in the studio the following week, it sums up my vision of afternoon shuffles and sweaty late-night action on the island" ​Matador
    Wildslide ​opens with spirited percussion of shakers and snare rolls, reverberating into a fuzzy and infectious bassline groove. The playful sample is looped over crazy effects and bright keys, before dropping into a final crescendo that will have feet stomping in unison. ​Sweet Release ​retains a classic deep house sound with dreamy chords and lush synth. The track develops with warm sub-bass, piano, arpeggiation and soulful vocals, resulting in a summertime anthem.
    Matador has made his mark on the electronic music world since the very beginning. Initially snapped up by Richie Hawtin, he released music on Minus and became a resident for ENTER. With his outstanding technical knowledge, he moved on to produce a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, became a brand ambassador for MODEL 1 and featured in Resident Advisor’s ‘Top 20 Live Acts’ for three years. In 2016 he launched his label RUKUS, releasing music from emerging and established artists alike. Spanning genres and formats he has made music for Sky TV and British Airways, his vinyl-only series ​Cyclone is firmly rooted in techno, whilst the stream only album ​Tuesday presents an exquisite take on ambient. His collaboration with Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra again highlighted his dexterity as a truly authentic musician. 2020 sees the launch of Matador’s podcast series focusing on studio gear and featuring interviews with touring artists. His new live performance ‘Live 2.0’ is also forthcoming and will feature hotly anticipated new music.
