As March arrives we are pleased to announce that we will be returning to our regular Wednesday night slot at WIRE.
This month we are showcasing some British talent and keeping things deep and groovy on the music policy.
[Retrofit / Leftroom]
English born Matthew Burton will provide his own variety of deep and trippy beats with as much soul he can squeeze in to a set!
Experiencing the heyday of Tyrant left an indelible mark on Matthew’s musical outlook. The stripped back, irresistible grooves of Craig Richard’s world famous club surface in both his incendiary DJ sets and uncompromising productions.
2008 saw Matthew move to Berlin and grace the decks at institutions such as Panorama Bar, Weekend club & Club Der Visionaire.
He has recently been working closely with Jay Shepheard’s Retrofit imprint and has recently released on good friend Sammy Dee's new label, Ultrastretch.
Look out for Retrofit#5 EP coming out at the end of this month on vinyl as well as “Military Buzz” coming out on a VA EP vinyl on Leftroom & rmx of Maya Jane Coles “You” on Hypercolour.
Now based in Berlin Matthew runs his own night ‘Busta Groove’ at Dice club, playing alongside the likes of Seth Troxler and Miss Fitz with a strict Deep House Only policy all night long.
Matthews productions have seen him release on labels such as Shrink records, Multi Vitamins, Elite records, Retrofit and Rohs records.
Matthew Burton is definately one to look out for.
[Murmur / Four:twenty]
Born in the North East and residing in Manchester, Ruthit learnt his craft with DJing in Ibiza in 2008 hosting intimate parties for a following of friends. These parties quickly gave him the platform to develop his own sound of organic and melodic deep house which attracted the attention of the Zoo Project and earned him a residency in that same year.
With inspirations from a diverse range of influences of Orbital, John Digweed and Underworld to Shonky, Seph and Onur Ozer his productions have been bubbling underground for quite some time. Ruthit gained the foundation of his studio techniques as an audio engineer before focusing his talents towards the dancefloor. In the short space of 2 years Ruthit’s originality and warmth within his productions have shined through which has lead to being signed to Matt Star’s Underground imprint, London based label murmur, Varience, and releasing a solo EP on Four:twenty.
The momentum for his sound has no sign of slowing down in 2010. Forthcoming collaborations with Carlos Sanchez & DJ Ray (8bit / Supernature), Kabuto & Kojo (Supernature / Get Physical / Area Remote), MANIK (Ovum / Pokerflat) and Dualton (Viva / Bedrock) and a bonus remix ready to drop on Darren Emerson’s artist album alongside X-Press 2 which took the roof off at Miami this year. Ruthit’s ever-growing back catalogue has turned the heads of the electronic music elite with rave reviews from DJ Mag and Mixmag and full support on the dancefloor from Dubfire, Danny Tenagila, Stacey Pullen, Mic Neumann, Geddes, Audiofly and Adam Shelton to name a few.
As a DJ 2010 has been his best year yet, securing a bi-monthly residency at Cargo in London, rocking the Red Box at Space closing 2010 and playing to a sold out crowd before Dan Ghenacia at Zutekh in Manchester. As a unique partnership Ruthit can be regularly seen playing jaw dropping sets with fellow producer and close friend Calor at their monthly residency at T-Pot in Manchester playing roof terraces, gardens and secret locations around the city which has given him the platform to road test his productions to the following he has gained.
At only 2 years on, this is only the beginning for one of the brightest underground music talents of the UK
