Berlin-based producer Matiryaloka AKA Malte Andrae returns with his debut EP ‘Drama Disc’, out now, following the release of his latest single ‘Compromised’.
Describing his sound a marrying of the darker parts of electronic and pop music, Malte draws on a myriad of influences, combining underground sensibilities with modern mainstream production.
Opening track ‘Siren’ is the perfect introduction to Andrae’s new direction and ever developing sound. Ghostly vocal samples are peppered throughout the sparse slow- burning intro over a restrained yet somewhat menacing bass note. We are introduced to the sultry R&B vocals of Eleanore, who found support from ZLR8R and BBC 1xtra’s B Traits with her ‘Thousand Thoughts’ EP. Her performance is reminiscent of BANKS as she croons the ominous lyrics “I feel you, I feel your presence, even if you’re not here” adding to the already foreboding Flume-esque production.
