VIVa MUSiC welcome rising Italian MATTHEW as he drops a trio of cuts via his ‘Neopolitan’ EP.

A new name from Italy’s musical rich city of Napoli, emerging DJ and producer MATTHEW emerged in style earlier this year, dropping his three-track ‘Exelent’ EP via Rich NxT’s What NxT imprint with support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Skream, Hector, Blond:ish, Tobi Neumann and LEON. Up next, he heads to Steve Lawler’s renowned VIVa MUSiC imprint to close September, unveiling three fresh cuts via his ‘Neopolitan’ EP.

Opening cut ‘Vieni Que Sasà’ welcomes a sun-soaked, disco-infused production armed with bright, funk-fuelled leads, while ‘My Family’ introduces moody low-ends, rich organic drums and infectious vocal samples to up the energy levels. To close, ‘We Wagliò’ continues to showcase the Italian’s versatility as he delivers an up-front, bass-heavy final cut to round out his VIVa debut with authority.

MATTHEW ‘Neopolitan’ EP drops via VIVa MUSiC on 24th September 2021. We premiere ‘Vieni Que Sasà’ on Data Transmission today, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.

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.
