Frankfurt’s Matthias Vogt has assembled quite the back catalogue over the past decade, from his timeless work as one half of Motorcitysoul on Aus Music and Freerange Records, to the six albums released by his popular jazz ensemble [re:jazz].
Matthias now teams up with London label Anjunadeep for a string of releases, kicking off with the ‘Seven Summits EP’ which has picked up early DJ support from Dixon, Tensnake and Dusky. Featured on the #1 iTunes Dance compilation ‘Anjunadeep 07’, title track ‘Seven Summits’ is a wistful trip through mystic melodies and haunting soundscapes, deftly blending delicate production with raw emotion.
Growing from sparse strings and jaunty keys, ‘Schwarzbach’ is another piece of subtle melodic house, flowing through elegant atmospherics before swelling to an understated crescendo.
‘Can We All Be Still’ takes a leftfield turn; a beautiful downtempo track built around a simple stabbing bassline and ethereal meditative vocals from Pete Josef.
