Pepe Mateos – 4Ever (Self-released, S004)
Pepe Mateos continues on his self-released mission of releasing one track a month throughout 2021 with another compelling cut, ‘4Ever.’
After 10 years in the underground scene, Mateos has earned himself a fine reputation for his ever evolving sound. His high impact house and techno workouts have come on the likes of Toolroom, Circus Recordings and Time Has Changed always make an indelible mark. His own Flow Musique labels with friend Davirus is just as vital, and as a DJ he has been a resident at Sankeys Ibiza as well as playing all round Europe.
Mateos has already turned heads with this new project just a few weeks into 2021. The first three singles picked up big support from DJs like Anthony Pappa, Stacey Pullen and Terry Francis, and press coverage from Mixmag, DMC World and Faze. The story continues with a fourth new tune, which shows off yet another side to this producer’s sound as he explores some warm microhouse vibes.
The excellent ‘4Ever’ is a song that has percussive touches typical of Pepe Mateos, with melodies that seem to come out of a psychedelic fable. Built on a slick and lively rhythm and bass combination, it’s always bristling and bubbling with energy that makes you want to shake every bone in your body. The tripped out melodic daubs, muffled vocals and twisted sense of groove never let up and find Mateos drawing out the tune to perfection.
Full of colour and soul, this is another gem from Mateos with plenty more to come each and every month.
