Miguel Matoz, Diatonik – Scattered

Ballroom Records BLRM011 04/01/2016

The next release to drop on burgeoning Berlin label, Ballroom Music is the ‘Scattered EP’, a collaboration between Lisbon born Miguel Matoz and India based, Diatonik. The result of an impromptu studio session during their Thailand tour, this two track EP can only be described as dark and stomping techno with machine like precision – another monster addition to the label’s growing release schedule.

The title track, ‘Scattered’ speaks of an organised chaos in its seemingly random effects that becomes part of a bigger whole with it’s creative sound patterns and design – complimented by Mr Robot, which delivers on raw energy in it’s purest form alongside low pitched vocals and a hooky synth line to create that biting atmosphere.

Part of the Clarisse family, Portugese national Miguel Matoz is no stranger to the international club scene having gigged in almost every corner of the European continent, including respected venues such as Madrid’s Fabrik, Portugal’s Kremlin and Ibiza’s DC10 and Pacha to name a few. Already a household name within the Indian electronic music scene, Diatonik, the techno alter ego of Animesh, is one of India’s most touring DJs since 2010, also racking up the European countries in gigs and festival sets.

A mighty and eclectic collaboration between Matoz and Diatonik, Scattered EP is one for the techno heads.
