Coming to prominence in ’96 via the legendary Ata Tak imprint, Matt Flores has spent the last 15 years steadily establishing himself as something of a producer’s producer amongst the international tech-house fraternity. Now after almost 100 releases under a variety of monikers including Mighty Flores and to a lesser extent My-T, the German makes his debut on Cinematic Recordings.
Having released the ‘Waveform’ EP via Cinematic’s sister channel, Shack Music in ’07, the Dusseldorf-based veteran delivers a 4 track EP in conjunction with the Dortmund-based sound designer and harpist, Meike Rath.
Comprised of 2 brand new solo cuts, the A-side features a hypnotic yet grooving slab of peak-time house entitled ‘Dub In The Red’, while ‘Enchanted’ is a far more reflective production that
melodically chugs through a magnitude of cavernous depth.
Over on the flipside, Matt and Meike follow on from a series of live collaborations together and once again pool resources. With both tracks steeped in an organic and almost pastoral elegance, ‘The Fall’ contrasts stacking percussion with a melancholic piano progression, before the EP’s emotive title track ‘Richter Method’ completes the package in wash of almost-Voigt-esque ambience and meticulously orchestrated instrumentation.
