Seeing as the peak of festive season is on very much on it's way we've decided that we'll be spreading the musical fare rather heavily in the run up to Crimbo this year and we're starting off with a mix from Tourist favourite Matt Waites that has been on heavy rotation round here for some time now. The mix was originally hosted on the excellent Slutty Fringe blog as promo for Matt's appearance at their 4th birthday party back in August but we thought we'd give it the second outing it deserves. Mat's productions have long since been a standard with us at Tourist from his early incarnation as Nightmoves remixing the likes of Deteatchments, Shy Child, Foals, In Flagranti, Roisin Murphy, Klaxons, Shit Disco, Friendly Fires and Late Of the Pier or putting out spacey slo-mo discoiod with Nadia Ksabia as 'G & S' for Codek and the much missed 'Dissident' imprint. Their debut single 'Show Me The Good Time' for Andy Blakes label was one of Tourists standout tracks of 2009 and was heavily played by the likes of the Disco Bloodbath crew, Erol Alkan and Optimo.
The success of his remixes and his djing has taken Matt around the UK playing at Glastonbury, Lovebox, Cocadisco, and Ministry of Sound and countless gigs around Europe, Australia, and the West Coast of America. Matt's latest project 'Moscow' see's him in a new guise which has seen a return to his love of the deeper side of house music and given him the opportunity to experiment further sonically.
Matt's last residency was as DJ and promoter at Future Flash, a monthly night at one of Londons newest clubs 'Cable' set deep in the arches of London Bridge and has seen him bringing the likes of Rub n Tug, Optimo, Mock & Toof, Maurice Fulton, Andrew Weatherall and Toby Tobias to play alongside him.
You can also heck out more of Matt's mixes, remixes and his own tracks on Soundcloud here and on his most excellent website here.
