PREMIERE: Michael Matchen - Nudes

Self-described NYC composer, producer, and button pusher Michael Matchen is here to take you on a journey with the expansive electronic beats of his latest single, "Nudes." The most recent release from his upcoming LP Savages, it's a track that's as unpredictable as it is beautifully symmetrical.

Matchen has made a habit (at least with his last two releases) of creating walls of sound that, while certainly powerful, are still rich and melodic enough to warrant some seriously active listening. "Nudes" opens with a series of isolated, disjointed synth hits that gradually resolve themselves, bit by bit, into just such an imposing climax, replete with a brilliant mashup of saxophone and breakbeats. If the rest of Savages is this inventive, it promises to be a hell of a trip.
