Following on from a breakthrough six months, Australian production prodigy MUTO has been making international waves with his new single ‘Say Nothing’. Seeing support from the likes of Triple J and Huw Stephens, the track has received an eyes-down rework from British club sensations Camelphat.
The duo’s remix keeps the low-end groove of the original, repurposing it into deep house territory with a sound that takes it away from headphone listening and thrusts ‘Say Nothing’ straight into the warehouse.
A synthetic journey wrapped in warmth, the original ‘Say Nothing’ contains a masterfully crafted groove. With a slightly more 4/4 percussive influence, MUTO’s ability to find light and shade in his production is met perfectly with the dark and mellow tones of Brisbane vocalist Emerson Leif. Embodied by its own subtleties, ‘Say Nothing’ carries an air of confidence and understated sensualness that resonates throughout the lyrics and production, leaving the listener with an indirect feeling of distant nostalgia.
In line with the release of ‘Say Nothing’, MUTO is currently embarking on a giant run of shows, including a handpicked support slot around Europe with electronic powerhouses ODESZA. With 9 more dates left (tour dates below) across the next three months, MUTO’s presence on stage, just like his musical reputation, is rising rapidly.
With a debut EP set for release, a global tour booked and his new single being worked by a global team, it’s set to be a wonderful end to 2017 for MUTO.
