Matta - The Lost - adn126

Matta - The Lost - adn126 With their début record, Matta bring the excitement back to dubstep. Shifting genres, adding weight, sharpening the production: this young duo come up with an immense three tracker that taps in a variety of style and unite influences into an enormous and coherent release. Not for weak soundsystems, but clearly for all bass addicts. (Get this on 12" / as mp3)

It might not be easy to make a name for yourself when you're a young dubstep act. But the least to say is that Matta have definitely cleared some space for themselves in 2009. Following tracks on UK's Heavy Artillery, US'S Terminal Dusk and Germany's Barish record, "The Lost" is the début solo effort by this British duo, finally giving these musicians the room they deserve to present their personal and heavy take at this genre.  

Cutting clear through the boundaries of dubstep, Matta also takes the trends by surprise, adding more weight and dark overtones while so many producers decide to go the other way round. In a way comparable to their new label mates Broken Note, they tap in drum'n'bass, electro and breakcore, and blend colossal beats and basses with an smart feeling for melodies, breaks and samples. In the end, Matta's tracks give you the feeling of finally hearing the material you had wished for unknowingly.

With "The Lost", Matta and Ad Noiseam put back the mass in dubstep, and bring back the excitement and enthusiasm that one can have when meeting a fresh and powerful new mixture of sounds and genres.
