Acclaimed UK producer and engineer MattKarmil is pleased to announce his new album, STS371, out March27th via SmalltownSupersound, and today presents the album’s lead single, “PB.”STS371 is his most concise album to date, with his signature mix of minimalism and reverb-drenched house still being the backbone of his warm, rich, atmospheric and melancholic sound.
STS371 was made largely while Karmil was travelling. Anticipating the completion of his music studio in The Cotswolds in England, Karmil favored “on the fly” production methods to finish his album. “It was not a linear process of recording,” says Karmil, “and in the end the majority of the work was to arrange and choose the right sounds and vibe.”
While his works fit within the tradition of techno’s timeless anonymity, Karmil’s highly personal music is anything but a xerox on dance music’s previous life. As Karmil puts it – minimally, simply and functionally: “I made a conscious effort to up the energy, and found a collection of tunes that felt coherent to me”.
Of “PB”, Karmil states: “I made ‘PB’ over an extended period, having made a 120bpm tune with the same texture and then resampled it and upped the tempo one evening in cologne. I wanted to make committed acid track that draws you in and worked hard to get the Drums, percussion and main melody working in harmony, but swapping roles a little.”
STS371 follows 2018’s Will. Since the release of Will he has co-produced and mixed KornélKovács’ acclaimed StockholmMarathon. He has also worked with, among many others, MatiasAguayo for CrammedDiscs and Talaboman for R&S, as an engineer, mixing and mastering.
