His real name is Mateusz Zontek. Born in 1990, grew up in Zabrzeg, a little village short way off the bigger town, Bielsko-Biała. His adventure with dance music began in childhood. Familiar with people dancing break-dance, at the age of 8 his interest and attention focused, instead of dancing, on music, to which older friends were training. Fascinated by energy sounds, he gives himself with passion over making made-up music album’s covers. Run Dmc, Davy Dmx, Afrika Bambaataa, Beastie Boys, Funk Master Flash, Arthur Baker – these are just some of his last idols: ‘I loved to listen those fast beats. The more ‘fat’ and energy, the better’. By the time. Everything has changed, when one day, somebody played album ‘Music For The Jilted Generation’, by The Prodigy.
Dark and aggressive hard hit of British band was a revelation for Matys. Since then he has been their ardent and devoted fan. Even more, he had never hid, that many inspirations and elements of his music style were drawn from freak trio from Shakespeare’s homeland. After the discovery of a heavy, severe tone electric music appetite had increased and searches of equally strong strike had begun. Something, what would combine explosive beats with low, angry rumble. Until 2005 he found out music, which was able to provide it to him . In 2005 he found Drum’n’bass.
Matys Polish rebel since day one. Preferred breakbeat than a lullaby, always choosing spray can over teddies. He just appeared on club music scene and the chaos started. His furious rock’n’roll attitude meets dirty neurofunk drum’n’bass to wreak havoc on dance floors. Target? To burn some rubber.
Aggressive guitar tone is smuggled into fat neuro sound and blended with wild, rough beats. It’s not about the bright side of life, for sure. As a result we get highly adrenaline driven tracks which would encourage to make Wall of Death even most polite boys wearing straight ironed collars. All that racket is not deprived of melody, and memorable riffs, which were carefully thought out to keep alive dark, rebel tone.
All that racket is not deprived of melody, and memorable riffs, which were carefully thought out to awake dark primordial energy in you.
