Musca is the next in the series of domestic house albums to follow the groundbreaking LP classics Around The House (1998), and Bodily Functions (2001).

After the wide expanse of his last big band album The State Between Us made with more than 1000 musicians and singers across Europe, this album instead is inward looking.

Matthew says: “Like presumably many other albums made during the last year, Musca reflects on navigating the challenges and joys of our most intimate relationships whilst the world is in turmoil. Not just with Covid, but with the rise in state and political violence, facebook-friendly fascism, white supremacy and a climate in crisis.”

Born of both intimacy and collaboration, Musca features eight singers, Verushka, Siân Roseanna, Allie Armstrong, Bianca Rose, Mel Uye-Parker, Daisy Godfrey, Y’akoto and Joy Morgan – all of whom Matthew has never worked with before or met face to face. It also features musicians Nick Ramm, Tom Herbert, Tom Skinner, Finn Peters, Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian and Leo Taylor, who, like the singers, all self-recorded and in isolation from each other.

“Experimental doyen circles back to his roots in house music” Electronica Album of the Month – Mojo **** (UK)

“Dynamic and playful”, “Musca” reminds the world of the virtues of an artist who is capable of dominating the setting like few others – Mondo Sonoro 8/10 (ES)

Despite the frequent rhythmic vivacity, Musca is a highly intimate and reflective work… discreetly danceable but full of ideas – Rumore 78/100 (IT)

“Exudes the usual elegance and always brilliant style of the British DJ, musician and producer” – DJ Mag Italia (IT)
