Paris-based Producer and DJ Matveï has shared the first installment in a series of EPs, Tales_For_Nightclubs. The first volume of the trilogy is out now via Kitsuné Musique, including the lead single, Te Necesito¡!”.
Matveï discusses the long history of the new single:
It all started with a rough acoustic guitar demo that had been sitting in my hard drive for 2 years. One day I stumbled upon Melika’s vocal performances and connected with them instantly, so I reached out and after 3 months of back n forths we finalized her topline. I had a very clear vision for this song from the beginning: I wanted to create a beautiful, highly melodic tune with Spanish vocals and acoustic guitars mixed with electronic elements (the vocoder and house beat for instance). Despite making about 30 versions of it, the song is finally yours and I couldn’t be happier with it.
Speaking on the upcoming set EPs, Matveï explains:
(TFN) is a rough and experimental series of sonic stories set to release – throughout 2022 – as an EP trilogy. This 1st project is focused on melodic club ideas, with minor chord progressions and a particular focus on percussion sound design.
Matveï was brought up on a steady diet of French Hip-Hop, House, and Bass, and blends House and urban club sounds, drawing inspiration from Kaytranada, Disclosure, Metro Boomin, Baauer and Sam Gellaitry.
