Introducing Matvei, a 21-year-old house producer from Paris
Our regular Making Waves feature showcases DJ mixes from rising stars and hot new talent. This month, it's the turn of recent Kitsuné Musique signing Matveï, who's just released his first single on the label, Rio, after several compilation appearances
Location: Paris, France
Describe the music you make in 20 words or less: House music inspired by Brazilian/Latin influences, with a touch of hip-hop.
Five key influences: Pharrell, Kaytranada, Kendrick Lamar, Rosalia, Octavian
What one artist/producer would you most like to work with, and why?
Pharrell – he's an incredible singer/songwriter/producer, and his use of drums as melodic elements in his productions is iconic. And Rosalia – I absolutely love her voice, and am very inspired by the atmosphere/vibe she's creating with her music.
If people check out just ONE of your tracks, what should it be? Get Lost
