Berlin’s Matthew Styles brings his runaway discotech and oddball atmospheric house live to the Analo
As one half of the foundational Crosstown Rebels label throughout the 00s, UK-born Matthew Stylespaved the way for artists like Minilogue, Seth Troxler, Pierre Bucci and many others, helping shape the sound of today’s international festival circuit. Matthew’s a dab hand at making things happen in the studio too, turning out oddball discotech locomotives on labels like Running Back, Horizontal, and Ostgut Ton, to name a couple, finding the sweet spot all of his own between spooky synths, dubby effects and infectious drum breaks. But it’s as a DJ that Matthew really comes into his own, following in his father’s footsteps and inciting dancers to wild abandon with appearances behind the decks all over the world. In this case, the content more than matches the style.
