Pepe Mateos returns the second edition to his series of self-released singles


Pepe Mateos lines up the second chapter in his series of self released singles for 2021 in the shape of the excellent ‘Origen’.

Berlin-based DJ and producer Mateos has been making music for more than a decade, always cooking up unique sounds that take electronic music in interesting new directions. He has found favour with the likes of Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer and Joseph Capriati for his energetic dancefloor workouts on labels like Toolroom, Circus Recordings and Time Has Changed, all while also running his own Flow Musique outlet with friend Davirus. He has been a resident at Sankeys Ibiza as well as playing all around Europe and now draws on all those experiences for this new project.

2021 will see Mateos release a series of 12 singles, one per month throughout the year. Things kicked off in January with the stellar ‘La Vida’ which picked up support from the likes of Mixmag, Faze and DMC world and had DJ like Anthony Pappa, Stacey Pullen & Terry Francis all showing the love.

Now the story continues with ‘Origen’, a stripped back and hypnotising slice of deep, tech leaning house with an off-kilter and mesmerising feel. Muted melodies, tight drum programming and twisted vocal FX all add to the sense of mystery on this standout single.

We premiere ‘Origen’ on Data Transmission today, check it out here and grab it here.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
