Matt Shadetek "iHop"
Veteran bass music producer Matt Shadetek has a solo instrumental album on the way for Dutty Artz. Entitled Flowers, it finds the Brooklyn artist indulging his ongoing love affair with thick low-end while exploring new influences from the world of UK garage and funky. While this first taste from the record is somewhat reminiscent of Shadetek's work with DJ /rupture on the XLR8R-championed Solar Life Raft mix album, in that it relies heavily on melody, the song ultimately distances itself immensely from that notable collaboration by ditching the thick atmospheres for a more stripped-down, upbeat, and dancefloor-minded production style. In doing so, "iHop" excels as a futuristic dubstep number with its focus on strong shuffling rhythms, thick bass melodies, and soulful, pitch-shifted vocal sampling on par with UK funky's finest.
