Berlin duo MAT.JOE pair really know how to cook up a storm and once again they proof is in the pudding with a pair of firing new tracks for their home label MOTHER RECORDINGS. “STRAWZ” opens the account in loose limbed House fashion. Silky drums bobble up and down and retro stabs and chattering claps add bite to the beats. A heavily treated vocal pings about and clever effects help build tension before the whole thing drops into a super fat house kicker.
On the flip, “BROTHERS IN CRIME” pops off like corn, with cyclical drums and more retro stabs urging you to dance. A tinny vocal is stitched into the arrangement and keeps you on edge as loopy bass cuts in and out. Firing and well produced, more dancefloor fire from one of favourite duo’s currently kicking it globally. 5/5. DRW
