Matthew Dekay and Patrice Baumel

  • Friday, September 18th, Do Not Sit On The Furniture presents ▲ MATTHEW DEKAY [ All Day I Dream / Innervisions] ▲ PATRICE BAUMEL [Kompakt Records] ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Matthew Dekay One of the masterminds behind the All Day I Dream Label & Parties alongside partner Lee Burridge, Matthew Dekay is an artist with deep roots in the progressive house scene but whose music always stood a distance apart. He shares the melancholic sensibilities and dancefloor-friendly vibes of the era, but as a musician with both classical training and classical restraint, revisiting his releases from 2001-2005 finds only pleasant surprises. The secret to his successful resurgence is perhaps the same one that kept him from the mega-success of a few early contemporaries, but the value of subdued emotional depth in dance music is very much a sign of the times now, and it is this that has brought him to a stature rivaled by few peers. It’s no surprise then that he caught the attention of the legendary Innervisions crew, whose similarly deep and searching sound has ranged freely from ambient to techno and established them as icons of the current era often mentioned in the same breath as Dj Koze, Villalobos, and Matthew Herbert ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Patrice Baumel Patrice Bäumel is an internationally renowned dj and producer currently living in Amsterdam. He is a long-running resident dj at Trouw Amsterdam, one of Europe’s leading venues for electronic music, running his “Black Magic” and “HiFi” nights at the club. Bäumel infuses his productions and dj sets with lots of energy and a sense of adventure, creating a sound that is satisfies the mind as well as the body. He calls it “techno music for grown-ups”. Trademark productions like “Roar”, “Mike Tyson” or, more recently, “The Woods” are perfect examples of that philosophy. Bäumel has worked with a number of outstanding labels like Get Physical, K7, Systematic, Diynamic, Trouw and Turbo and has big releases coming up in 2014 for Kompakt and My Favorite Robot. Bäumel is also involved in several crossover projects involving classical music, such as his rendition of Steve Reich's “Drumming” at the Concertgebouw during ADE in 2013 or his “Yellow Lounge” residency at Trouw.
