Dopamine - April 2007 House Promo
Wed 18th Apr, 2007 ITM-FMin
If you thought Dopamine only did superslick tech-infused breakbeat, then think again. Here he’s given inthemix a taste of his housier sounds.
With 10 years experience behind the decks and a history of techno and electro based music, the progression to breaks has seen Dopamine bringing fresh and exciting elements to the genre. He’s into what he does and it shows – whether in the genuine loving he places in each carefully crafted track or the personality we glimpse behind the decks; Matt Dopamine IS breakbeat.
First and foremost Dopamine is a producer. His tracks are some of the finest electro/ tech influenced breakbeat badness available today. They literally fly out of stores and line the record boxes of influential artists such as The Plump DJs, Stanton Warriors, Tayo, Annie Nightingale, Uberzone, General Midi, Rennie Pilgrem, and FreQ Nasty to name but a few.
Dopamine is one of Title Fight Recordings’ main recording artists alongside the Label’s Manager and himself respected breakbeat artist; Klaus Heavyweight Hill. The coming year sees a slew of remixes for artists such as Myagi, Vinyl Life and Metric – all of which are sure to push Dopamine’s profile further worldwide as more clubbers discover his dance floor orientated sound. But don’t expect his original production work to slow down as he remixes for others – the Dopamine release schedule remains packed with more solid breaks tunes to make your mouth water.
His residency at the weekly Break Inn night at Sydney’s ‘Chinese Laundry’ is renowned as the best place in Australia to catch ‘fat ass breaks’ and has fast become one of the most respected breaks nights in Australia since it’s inception just under a year ago. 2005/2006 has seen Matt playing alongside most of the heavyweights of breaks on his UK/European tours where his storming set with Klaus Heavyweight Hill at the Breakspoll awards at Fabric no doubt ensured them both a repeat invitation.
With his diary booked out many months in advance, the only question remaining is; Where can you catch Dopamine next?
