Matador and ARTBAT release their debut collaboration ‘Apollo 11’ on Matador’s RUKUS imprint. When two of the hottest techno acts announce an alliance, a hypersonic gestalt is created. Their two-tracker, named after the first successful moon landing craft, is out of this world, and arrives bang on target.
Matador, fresh off a high-octane Australian tour, has hit 2019 running. Whilst the year ahead promises new frontiers for the live artist to conquer, with gigs at Sonar Istanbul and Ultra Miami, he ensures his RUKUS brand welcomes both new faces and explorative trajectories.
Release Date: March 15th 2019
1) Apollo 11
Duo ARTBAT, from Kiev, have achieved enviable success, building on solid bases as individual DJ/producers. Regulars on Diynamic, their ‘Planeta’ EP in 2018 is the label’s biggest selling release yet, and ‘Upperground’ from their latest EP is currently No. 1 in Beatport’s overall chart. Their sets likewise are innovative and exuberant, leading to stellar shows at Circoloco and Fusion Festival.
