Matt Oliver – Collision [RKP]

8 min read

The latest release from Ruben Karapetyan's RKP welcomes Matt Oliver to the label for his debut EP. On the strength of early tracks such as 2021's 'Spirit' and 'Missing', the Brazilian artist quickly caught the interest of progressive music fans. Having success marrying the nostalgic grooves of the genre with emotional melodies and club-effective rhythms, Matt became a newcomer to watch. The next two calendar years would see Matt continue to perfect his craft, and in turn land standout projects via long-standing imprints such as BCSA, Mango Alley, The Purr and Transensations. Now, as one Brazil's top progressive house prospects, Matt adds RKP to his resume with 'Collison', alongside remixes from The Wash and Anton MAKe.

Matt continues to explore his groovy style on his latest studio offering 'Collision'. Deep and fluid throughout, it's a framework of warm kick drums and mesmerizing rhythms which lay the foundation for flashing percussion, cross-cultural accents and soulful overlays to create a smooth first act. A darker monochrome of effects adds further depth and space, as melodies open up and push the journey forward, bringing with them a cruising vibe leading into the break. Keeping rhythm locked across the interlude, Matt showcases his keen dancefloor sensibility, in turn building anticipation with clustered drums, before eventually shifting energy into a finale that is equal parts effortless and uplifting.

The first interpretation of 'Collision' is provided by The Wash who makes his label debut. As a DJ first, Austrian artist The Wash has spent nearly two decades in the electronic music underground. A ten-year stretch as a DJ would find the Vienna resident programming music for some of his country's trendiest venues, before eventually embarking on a career as a producer in 2016. The next seven years would see The Wash build an enviable portfolio, highlighted by releases via Forensic , UV and Mango Alley, the latter of which operates as his primary home. With a contribution to Global Underground's 'Select' series to begin the year, The Wash now adds RKP to his resume with a huge interpretation of 'Collision'. Opting for a dubbier, more groove-centric approach, The Wash aims squarely at the dancefloor, taking the track into subversive territory, as haunting overlays and deconstructed sonics converge for an otherworldly experience, while an acid-tinged break fully saturates your senses onwards to a trippy finale.

The release concludes with Anton MAKe also making his label debut with the second and final interpretation of 'Collision'. Russian artist Anton MAKe crafts music that is both groovy and musical, often incorporating vocal elements to create a different level of depth and space. First emerging nearly a decade ago, the Kazan resident would rise into one of progressive music's top tier artists with releases via Juicebox Music, Mango Alley, Proton Music, Replug, WARPP and most recently Analog Jungs Constellation imprint. Now, as a longtime favourite of Cid Inc, Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren, Anton debuts on RKP with a groovy take on 'Collision'. Mysterious and thought-provoking throughout, it's a heady amalgamation of sound which makes for a club-effective yet uniquely rhythmic journey, elegantly flowing through uplifting melodic clusters and hopeful overlays, before a set of fuzzed-out chord stabs highlights an immersive break, perfectly setting up a thumping finale to close the release out on a groovy note.
