Matthias Vogt

Höfats EP

Komplex de Deep the new label of Master-H, and the purveyors of all that is elegant and classy in the realm of house, make are welcome return with what is set to be their next release. The artist is non other than the music genius, Matthias Vogt.

Best known as one half of the Motorcitysoul duo, alongside Christian Rindermann aka C-Rock. The pair have been responsible for some of the finest productions and remixes from the deeper realm over the past few years. Their ability to create grand, atmospheric and emotional moments for the floor has seen them release and remix for fantastic labels including Cocoon, Freerange, Simple, Conaisseur, Liebe Detail, Junior Boys Own, Tsuba and their very own Stir 15.

As a solo artist Matthias has carried those production skills, adding his own flair and direction. Urban Torque, INFRACom!, Gedankensport and Fresh Meat have all released his music to great response and support.

Matthias' skills do not just sit in the electronic dancefloor realm. An accomplished pianist and jazz lover, his role as bandleader in the 'Matthias Vogt Trio' sees him bring acoustic jazz and electronica together in exciting, imaginative live compositions.

Today's release 'Hofats' sees Matthias keeping it deep, whilst using melodic and powerful 'Detroit' touches. A dream of a production, its layers of smooth synths are expertly built upon, and whilst never peaking, Hofats traps us in its mesmerizing wake.

On remix duty its H's good friend and label artist Francois Dubois. When he's not lounging in the Spanish or Parisian sunshine, FD is creating some of the most beautifully classic, deep house. Here again he brings his magic touch to Hofat and delivers a sunrise record of the ultimate order. Just sit or lay back, and... Enjoy!
