31/07/11 w/ Matthew Brown

Last November, Melbourne’s techno jesus Matthew Brown played a heavy trance inducing club set at a Utopian Slumps fundraiser event that blew my head clean off! His live synth-whizzerdry brought together the best bits of Detroit’s weeping machines and the atmospheric tension of John Carpenter’s soundtracks. I needed to experience this again and was desperate to share it with our listeners. Six months later we finally bumped into each other and were able to negotiate this special live-to-air performance which Matthew effortlessly pieced together with improvised elements. Matthew is also a member of evolving noise-rock ensemble Zond and Yellow Magic Orchestra recreators Super Ryden Machine. Moon Rocks documented his solo appearance at the recent DJ Tote Bagz/Plus Cafe gig here.
