Matador is back on his own mighty RUKUS label with his sizzling new Riches & Sins EP. Featuring vocals from Liz Cass and Ashley Slater, this EP marks another subtle evolution in the core Matador sound.
The Dublin artist has been at the top of his game, and the global scene for years now, and even the global pandemic hasn’t slowed him down. It’s all thanks to his dynamic techno style, expert synth craft and attention to detail which make him stand out from the crowd, and these two new cuts are a testament to his artistic flair.
Opening the EP, ‘Riches & Sins’ featuring Liz Cass pairs her spine tingling emotive vocal with booming kicks. The duality makes for a truly dramatic tune with an epic breakdown and then a rolling, hypnotic groove that is irresistible. ‘Live Again’ features typically heavy kicks and mysterious synth leads that draw you in from the off. The high pressure drums never let up and when heavenly melodies and an airy vocal from Ashley Slater arrive, they put you under their majestic spell as the tension grows. It’s easy to see this one blowing up the dance floor as soon as we all return.
This is another standout EP from Matador, with plenty more lined up throughout the rest of the year. Release date is June 1st.
