Matheiu – Durga Gayatri [Fantastic Friends]
Venezuelan artist Matheiu returns to Nicolas Duvoisin‘s Fantastic Friends record label with a solid two-tracker alongside DoubtingThomas on remix duties. Inspired by the Vedic mythology and mantras, “Durga Gayatri” reveals a powerful minimal sound tinged with Indian tones, hypnotic arrangements and driving rhythms that will be able to ignite dancefloors worldwide for sure. The EP adds even more magic to the imprint’s catalogue which includes works from artists like Julien Chaptal, Plastic FM, Giorgio Maulini, Liviu, Mihai Popoviciu, Niko Maxen, Matt Star, Einzelkind, Marcelo Rosselot and Alejandro Vivanco, among many many others.
Based in Berlin, Matheiu is well-known in the international scene, having played at renowned venues around the world while dispatching amazing productions with labels like Enough! Music, Heisenberg, Rawstreet, Serialism, Amam, Saint and Don’t, Ark Scapes and Rockets Audio. Nowadays, his live sessions are a perfect and energetic blend of the most amazing sounds related to minimal techno, electro and tech house aesthetics while also experimenting in fields like ambient, IDM and dub for a more relaxed, downtempo mood. For this material, he invites French artist DoubtingThomas to add his own magic to the concept and he sure delivers the vibes.
The EP features both the original cut and the remix on Side A, making it a single-sided release. “Durga Gayatri” dwells in the realm of twisted minimal music and drops an eerie yet driving flow through its intriguing narrative. Set at 127 bpm, the story is elegantly powered by exotic insertions, mind-bending glitches and a gloomy atmosphere perfect for dimly lighted dancefloors. In contrast, the remix provided by DoubtingThomas goes for a deeper mood, focusing on steady-paced drumming patterns and warm background textures that elegantly blend with spacious breakdowns. A highly recommended record for collectors and selectors alike!
