Matisa - The Elsewhere Ep (Kim Ann Foxman Remix)
Following her recent outings on Optimo and Butter Sessions Matisa wants to take you to another special place. It’s not here. It’s not there. It’s ‘Elsewhere’… Making her debut on Biologic, young Italian newcomer Matisa’s adventure is plotted around three atmospheric, soul-affirming late-night gems that are all based around different chapters of the night and the mindset that comes with it. Loaded with an additional Kim Ann Foxman remix, this trip has something for everyone. We start with ‘I Need A Bit Of Poetry’, Matisa’s yearning for substance and meaning wrapped up in a bright, breezy timeless piece of house music that borders on the majestic realms of progressive. Think about poetry in all forms of life… Connections, adventure, but most of all - music. Deeper into the trip we glide; first comes Kim Ann Foxman’s crisp electro twist on ‘I Need A Bit Of Poetry’ which maintains that evocative rave vocal but switches up everything else for something much darker. Next we hit ‘Are You Not Sleepy?’ Inspired by the post-show brain chaos mindset we can all relate to, it’s up-tempo, it’s trance-influenced, it’s Matisa capturing that infuriating but exciting fizzy inspiration and adrenaline rush we all experience after a fulfilling show. For the final chapter of this accomplished label debut, ‘The Curtain Falls’, Matisa takes us back to the source of that adrenaline rush. A bubbling disco house thumper, all reverbed drums and big synths, it’s inspired by the moment when your set kicks in and the crowd are right behind you every track of the way and you lay your soul down bare for everyone to enjoy. If there’s a place more special than that, we’ve yet to find it. Welcome to Elsewhere… We ain’t going nowhere.
