If you’ve at all sniffed around the Beatport charts at some stage in the last 12 months, then its highly likely that you’ll have been hugely impressed by a Berlin-based duo that go under the name Mat.Joe. With a string of releases and remixes in the last year on Snatch! Mother Recordings, Defected, Strictly Rhythm and of course Toolroom Trax, its an outright pleasure to have them return for their debut single release on the governing Toolroom Records this spring.
Nighthawk is an all-consuming tech house affair packed with deep grooves, guitar and synth licks and a dimly lit vocal performance, creating a delicately atmospheric personality within the track. Mat.Joe wholly boast their signature warm-yet-rough sound pallet and once again show us why their tracks are in such high demand.
The release is graced by this stunning re-work from Dosem who twists up the original elements and creates a dark roller that’s crafted to perfection.
