Matt Rowan – Clarity [Soundteller Records]

4 min read

Following on from the success of 2021's 'Schwifty/Sanctity', Matt Rowan returns to Soundteller Records with 'Clarity'. In a year that saw the Australian producer land releases via Just Movement, PHW Elements, RYNTH and Spring Tube, it was the aforementioned two track showcase for Polish imprint Soundteller which perhaps displayed Matt's greatest depth as an artist. His first project of 2022 looks to continue that creative trajectory beginning with progressive sounds of 'Boss Hog'. Many of the production hallmarks which made Matt so popular over a decade ago are prevalent here as well, albeit juiced up for today's progressive landscape. Catchy hooks come in the form of vocal edits and wavy basslines, while swing heavy rhythms and buoyant percussion deliver those motifs perfectly to the dancefloor.

Meanwhile, title selection 'Clarity' is equally pacey at 124 bpm and lands with equal vigor. Once again a clever array of vocal edits and stabs stand out, married perfectly with interesting percussive arrangements and a romping, high octane groove. A colourful arp steals the air leading into the second act, before eventually giving way to dubbed rhythms and additional percussive brilliance for a room rocking finale. Bringing things down just a touch is the final selection 'Do it Easy' which is perhaps most reminiscent of his 'Schwifty/Sanctity' release. The grooves get funkier and the squelchy progressiveness gets cast aside for timeless chord stabs, house inspired vocals and soulful instrumentation. Although robust and groovy throughout the backroom feel is undeniable and I expect that's where this one can do the most damage. It rounds out three exceptional productions from Matt, which show his creative prowess is still operating at its highest level after all these years. Highly recommended.
