498 – Mat.Joe
Mat.Joe AKA Matze and Johannes grew up in Hannover before moving to Berlin to challenge themselves artistically, it was here that their Hip-hop and Soul influences fused with their distinctively crisp Housebeat sound. Constantly on the look out for inspiration be it on subway rides or late night showers, the boys are constantly striving to improve and push their music forward.
Their productions come to life in a Neukölln backyard where studio equipment and DJ decks meet desiccated plants. A natural development when music has become the top priority from dusk till dawn. Inspiration is found everywhere between subway rides, late night showers and favorite bars. New ideas are kept manically on every smartphone nearby. This is sound autism at the highest stage. Mat.Joe’s love for music and the ambition to improve are the main ingredients that keep the engine running.
Mat.Joe – Nonstop Nonsense. Released 22nd July on Hot Trax
