Matthew Dear + Forma + Mark E + Fur

Posted by Jakub

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: Matthew Dear got me my job at Ghostly International 10 years ago, I’ve walked his dog while he’s on tour and we’ve had many fun nights djing together, so you might think i’m favoring him heavily, BUT this song is revolutionary. He’s formed into this Byrne/Bowie icon live, that no one has dared to humbly fill those shoes since the 80’s, but if you meet him, It’s an honest pairing and he’s committed to his unique sound, do yourself a favor if you like this song make sure to catch it live with the band, he puts on a stunning show and i’m not just saying that…you see no link to buy the song :)

The few times I’ve posted Fur its been sun drenched lo-fi slow melodies so this single wasn’t what I was expecting but i’m definitely into it, nice to see more attempts of minimal house from fusion acts like Furs.

Mark E just released a slew of tracks on his Soundcloud, definitely worth a follow if you’re on there.

More synth journey’s from FORMA, always great to hear what they have posted, makes me go back into their catalog and let all the tracks play out.

The Matthew Dear track is great! Interestingly I hear a bit of TV On The Radio in it, but only if they took Dave Sitek’s guitar away from him and told him to just stand in the corner and get funky

I just discovered Matthew Dear’s Her Fantasy too and it is a hell of a track. Heavy stuff, I like it. I’m a big fan since Black City. I should listen to his previous work i guess :].

Thanks for sharing your playlists btw. I always love them.

I’ve been following Matthew Dear’s work ever since you introduced me to it in 2009 when you posted Audion’s “It’s Full of Blinding Light.” Thanks again for sharing this. Great stuff.
