Bleed Together out now!

Bleed Together, the next EP in the Calliope album series, is out today.  I’m proud of it.  Really proud of it.  Objectively I think it’s a stronger EP than Punish Me.  While there are moments and songs on that which I believe to be rather quite good, as a whole Bleed Together is where I think I “found it.”  To be fair, Bleed Together is far newer and perhaps I’m honeymooning a bit with it, but time will tell.   It’s a much more romantic EP.  Less “Punish Me,” more “Love Me.”  A couple of years ago I would’ve said that I could only be truly inspired in times of duress.  I sure was wrong, or I evolved.  Either way, what a beautiful change of pace to move beyond that.  Perhaps it’s part of getting older and the angst subsiding.  This is a good thing. Bleed Together is rooted very deeply in mythology, and I attribute much of that to reading a fair amount of Joseph Campbell this year.

A little about the songs on Bleed Together:

The first two songs of this EP, Bleed Together and Leave Behind, were inspired by a summer romance.  She had a mysticism about her followed by a devilish twinkle hidden behind deep blue eyes.  Through her I was exposed to a magic and a beauty within the world that I’m usually too blind and cynical to see.  Of course because there’s often little poetry within a happy ending (I’ve also heard it said that a happy ending merely depends on where the story stops), it was over as quickly as it began.  Life threw her a curve ball followed by some extended travel, and she never fully returned.  However, I’m beyond grateful for the inspiration.  I hope she calls.   Calliope was written for my Calliope, the queen of my muses time and time again. She knows who she is.

Tap Tempo 020 - Dwarfcraft... and new music from me next week.

After a nice little 2 week break, thanksgiving and so forth, we're back.  This week on Tap Tempo Ben Hinz from Dwarfcraft joins me.  For those not of the guitar persuasion, Dwarfcraft is a small family run business out of Eau Claure, WI, and they make some of my favorite guitar pedals ever.  Earlier this year on Pensado's Place I mentioned a pedal that I lovingly refer to as "Death Kitties," which is actually called the Big Distortion Sound Machine (BDSM.. obviously).  Dwarfcraft was responsible for that and it was my introduction into their twisted sonic world that I've become a very ardent fan.  Fun fact:  The climax of Clever Girl, which contains waves of distortion, was created by running very low pitched strings through Death Kitties.  It's a beautiful sparkly blue box with 2 pink cats wrestling on it.  How could I deny it?  We dive deep into the ethos behind Dwarfcraft.   A fair amount of gear talk, of course, but also much about what gives them a very unique voice in the world of guitar pedals and the dynamic of how Ben and his wife Louise run the company together all the while raising 3 children.   This one was a ton of fun.

Also... I have new music out in a week!  The next EP in the Calliope album series is called Bleed Together, and it'll be available on December 13th.  It's a much more romantic EP than the last.  Less "punish me," more "love me."  Ha.  I'm proud of it.  Objectively, I think it's really good.  I'll be posting little teasers of it over the next week.

Finally, I advise you to listen to Nils Frahm's album, Felt. It's good for the soul.

Tap Tempo 019 - Rinzen & Tania Zygar's Explode

This week on Tap Tempo I have mau5trap's newest artist, Rinzen, on the show.  Rinzen, also known as Michael Sundius, has a long standing background as a journalist for media outlets such as Billboard and Dancing Astronaut which certainly gave him a unique perspective on how to launch his artist career.  In our talk we dive into the various ways that has helped him as well as a lot of discussion on fostering creativity and the philosophy behind his brand.  It was a pleasant surprise to find how much in common we had there down to even the books we choose to read.  His debut EP, Forbidden City, was just released last month.

Listen to Rinzen's episode of Tap Tempo here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/tap-tempo-019-rinzen/id1258104375?i=1000394889091&mt=2

So THIS is a long time coming.  As some of you know, some 4 or 5 years ago I worked with Tania Zygar producing her debut album.  As life has a tendency of throwing a wrench in the mechanism from time to time, it got delayed for 4 years after we finished it.  Finally it's on it's way out, however!  The first single, Explode, was just released today and the rest of it should be coming shortly.  We're both beyond excited about being able to share it.  A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into the album, and it was certainly a very pivotal and evolutionary journey for both of us.  More to come soon...  In the mean time, you can listen to Explode here:  https://enhanced.lnk.to/TANIA001

There will not be a Tap Tempo next week as it's Thanksgiving over here, so we'll pick back up the following week.  Enjoy your time with friends and family.

Tap Tempo 018 - Sharooz Raoofi

This week I have Sharooz Raoofi on Tap Tempo. As the founder of Sample Magic, which is now 12 years old, he's watched the electronic music world evolve time and time again as he's provided many of the tools that have influenced and inspired producer after producer. If we backtrack about 9 years ago, I produced a little sample library for one of the Sample Magic imprints, Sounds To Sample, which they later sold to Beatport. Coincidentally we ran into each other a number of times over the past few weeks, and it seemed like a great opportunity to get him on the show before he flies back to the UK next week.

We dive pretty deep into ethos of Sample Magic, which as always always produced their products at an extremely high level, and as always felt beautifully boutique. Beyond just samples, they've also produced books and now plug ins. I personally use the A/B plugin a ton. We also discuss the new artist project he's working on centered around a mouthwatering collecting of analog synths and drum machines he's amassed over the years. It's a really good talk; dare I say one of the best I've had so far on the show. He's incredibly insightful as well as humble, which is a really lovely thing considering how much of a success Sample Magic is. It truly was a pleasure to have him on.

Tap Tempo 017 - Finishing Move and the music of Halo Wars 2. And more.


It's been a busy couple of weeks.  As you may or may not have noticed, I didn't harass you with a weekly email last week.  We did a mau5trap show in Austin a week and a half ago and I ended up staying down in Austin for a few days thereafter.  Call it a mini vacation, a necessary recalibration, or a momentary disconnection.  It was needed.  A little separation to see the forest from the trees is always a good thing I think.  Consequently there was no Tap Tempo last week.  As soon as I got back I hit the ground running and rather swiftly finished up the next EP from the Calliope project.  I'm really proud of it.  I'll talk more about it soon once we get closer to the release of it.  It'll be in December.

Now this week there fortunately is a Tap Tempo.  Finishing Move is the production/composer duo made up of Brian Trifon and Brian Lee White.  "The Brians" as they are often aptly referred to.  After launching Finishing Move a few years ago they've gone on to work on a litany of game scores, most recently Halo Wars 2.  They also put out their own signature instrument last year called Posthuman that I ended up using a bit.  My song, Clever Girl, was started with it.  Very inspirational tool.  So the 3 of us sat down and got into the nitty gritty of their scores, their partnership, and if they were to choose a finishing move to off each other, a la Mortal Kombat, what they would choose.

Tap Tempo 016 - Rhys Fulber & mau5trap takes over Austin, TX

Today I had the pleasure of getting Rhys Fulber to sit down for Tap Tempo.  For those not aware of his given name, you certainly are aware of his music.  Remember the Delerium song, Silence, with Sarah McLachlan?  Check.  Basically every Fear Factory album from the 90's and 2000's? Check.  For the industrial heads... Front Line Assembly?  Check.  He's been around a long time and carries a lot of wisdom from his experience in the industry.  He's also a close friend and someone I can lean on for support and advice when down and out in Paris and London.  We talk a bit about the start of his career, how he pioneered synthesizers within the usually strict guidelines of metal, and a newfound peace and gratitude for his career, and life in general.

For those in Austin, TX, the mau5trap crew is descending upon you this Sunday.  We're taking over Kingdom nightclub all night long, and included on the bill besides me is our pal from last week, Monstergetdown, Black Gummy, and No Mana.   I really love Austin, and I love Kingdom as well.  I always have such a great there.  Truly looking forward to it.

Tap Tempo 015 - Monstergetdown

Just a quickie this week. Monstergetdown is on Tap Tempo. Even though he's been part of the mau5trap family for a couple of years now, he only just released his debut EP, 28mm with mau5trap a couple weeks ago. What better a time to get him on the show! He's a sweet guy. We're played a number of shows together as well as hung out recreationally on occasion too. East Side represent. We kill a growler of the Pioneer Man IPA from the Highland Park brewery and talk all the things that makes the monster get down.

Tap Tempo 014 - Reuben Keeney + LA/Denver and Elevate

 

Happy Wednesday everyone,

This week on the show I've got Irish house music producer, Reuben Keeney.  About 8 years ago or so I remixed one of his records called "Futuro," and the crazy thing is he was only about 16 or 17 years old at the time.  Fast forward to present day, he'd been listening to the podcast, was planning a trip to LA, and wanted to join. So here we are.  He's a great guy.  We talk a lot about his background, how he ended up making records at such a young age, a lot about the international political climate, nationalism and so forth, and introduce him to southern California beer.

This saturday I'm doing a warehouse show in LA.  Late night.  2-4am.  Then I'm quickly flying to Denver a few hours later and will be doing a free show at Beta.  For those in either area, tickets/RSVP can be found here:  www.mattlange.net/tour

Lastly for the production folks, I've been involved with Eventide/Newfangled Audio for the past year on a new limiter called Elevate.  It's out now finally, and it's quite honestly the best limiter I've ever used.  It's stunning.  They had me film a little video about it with them a couple weeks ago in New York and you can learn more about it here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBE3h2EKyW0

Tap Tempo 013 - Francis Preve

Happy Wednesday,

We're back on track.  Things are good. Mostly.  This week on Tap Tempo I've got Francis Preve (www.francispreve.com).  Francis is a bit of a guru in the electronic music sphere at this point after having a 30+ year career in it.  He's been involved in so many sides of it, from working on hit records, to designing a ton of the presets that come on many many synthesizers, to being a journalist for numerous music tech magazines for the past 25 years.  On top of all of that, he's a long time faculty member at Austin Community College specializing in Music Production.  We recorded this in Austin at his home studio during SXSW this year, but held out on releasing it until now.  There is a lot to learn from him. A lot.

Tap Tempo 012 - Q&A (Your Questions Answered)

This week I've got a Q&A episode for you.  I reached out on all the various social media outlets on Tuesday to gather all sorts of questions ranging from general life stuff to music production and this is the result of that.  I think it's good.  It's certainly honest.  Hopefully you gain something from it.

Minus a weekend here and there, I'm pretty much home for the rest of the year.  Full speed ahead on the album, the next EP, and all sorts of writing things.  I'm relieved.  While touring can be really enjoyable I always find myself extremely drained after a long run of it, and the hours never allow me to get to the actual writing music part of my life.  I need it.  I did a surprise set at Sound here in LA on this past Tuesday night as part of the weekly Space Yacht parties and it was the best way to wrap up the tour.  It quite possibly could be my favorite set I've ever played in LA.  Great crowd, great vibe, great everything honestly.  Thank you to everyone who was a part of that.

Ok, back into the void.

Tap Tempo 011 - Andrew Bayer

It's been a hectic week over here. Lots of travel.  I'm still catching up, but it was good.  New York is always such a special place to visit for me.  I did grow up there after all, and only get to return far too infrequently. Every time I visit I always end of thinking I should move back there, but then the reality of winter sets in and that little fantasy gets instantly nixed. I like my California sunshine all too much.  C'est la vie. Saw family, friends, filmed a video promo for Eventide, played at Output.  It was good.  That was followed by flying up to Montreal the next day, did a gig at Newspeak.  Nice club.  Thanks all who came out to both.  Was great to chat with some of you after the gigs.

This week I have Andrew Bayer on Tap Tempo.  I flew east a day early so that I could spend a day with him.  It had been far too long.  He's been one of my closest friends for nearly a decade and we usually only get to see each other about once a year these days.  We recorded this the next morning while we both we feeling pretty haggard, but it's a good talk and look into how he functions.  We talk a lot about his next album that he's been working on, writing music that is true to yourself, his role with Above & Beyond, and his newfound love of domestication.  Frankly, I'm very envious of that.  He's built a beautiful life for himself.

As always, you can listen here:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/tap-tempo-011-andrew-bayer/id1258104375?i=1000392200528&mt=2

On Friday I'm flying out to London, Ontario to play the Bud Light Block Party (Ha!), and on Saturday I'm back at Sound Bar in Chicago where I'm doing the whole set in Dolby Atmos Surround.  As an artist (and listener), Atmos is so exciting to work in and it feels like you're truly existing within the music itself, not just listening to it.  Last time I got to play in this format was in the UK last year at Ministry Of Sound.  Finally we have an Atmos system in the states thanks to Sound Bar.  If you're in the area it's absolutely worth checking out.

Until next week,
Matt

Tap Tempo 010 - Anthony Baldino and 100 beers!

We made it.  10 Episodes.  I wasn't sure how long this little endeavor would last, but it's still going strong apparently.  This episode is a little bit different.  This past weekend I received a few boxes of "beer" from Anheuser-Busch and ridiculous as that is, I figured the best course of action was to call Anthony Baldino up and plan something.  We decided the only real acceptable solution was to pour them all out down the drain while we recorded a Tap Tempo with him as the guest.  In preparation for this we also stopped by the Stone brewery, filled up a growler with one of their test pilot pale ale's and made our way back home to get it going.  Anthony's an amazing talent, an amazing friend, and an amazing co-drainer of bud light.  So much amazing.  We talk a lot about his musical career path, modular synths (of which he's in the upper echelon), some production stuff, and trying to navigate relationships in this modern age.  All while pouring out 1 beer at a time over the course of an hour.  It's fun.  It's silly.  It's real.

This weekend I'm at Output in New York on Friday.  Late night slot.  On Saturday I'm in Montreal at Newspeak.  I'm hoping to record a couple Tap Tempos with some guests local to those two cities as well during this trip if all goes according to plan.  Fingers crossed.  Links to tickets for both can be found here: http://www.mattlange.net/tour/

Black Math - Lapse (Matt Lange's Unforgiven Remix)

I remixed my friends Black Math a few months ago (they kill it in the trailer music world, finally branching out a bit into the public eye), and this is what I came up with.  It's one of my most favorite remixes I've ever done, and it's heaaaavy.  Drop F 7 string guitars!  I'm proud of this one.

Tap Tempo 009 - not sorry

This week on Tap Tempo I have producer, not sorry.  He's very established in the Dubstep and Drum and Bass world, releasing primarily these days via Reid Speed's Play Me Records and Diplo's Mad Decent.  It's a good and long chat.  We cover all things dubstep/dnb as well as our mutual once-upon-a-time-home-town, New York.  We also downed a couple growlers of IPA's from the Highland Park Brewery.  Yesterday morning was rough.

Tap Tempo 007 - Me...

Good morning all,

This week on Tap Tempo the tables are turned.  Michael Sundius of Dancing Astronaut, Billboard and mau5trap reached out a couple weeks ago about putting the focus on me this time around, and this is the result of that.  It's a pretty intimate and raw look into where I'm at these days.  A lot of self reflection, aspirations, commentary, etc... It's a little strange to go through your own interview.  Sometimes I wish I had worded things a little differently, but it's mostly to the point.  I think.  Maybe I'm full of shit.  C'est la vie...

It's been a busy studio week for me over here.  I've been knee deep in Calliope tracks again.  Lots of late nights, lots of vocals, lots of wine.  It's been rewarding and I'm excited.  I'd like to think it's some of the best songwriting I've done as of this point.  Realistically I'm looking at November for the next EP of that.  I've been in the Dolby studios the past couple of days as well remixing the club tracks I've done over the past year into their Atmos surround format to be performed in Chicago next month at Sound Bar.  It's nice that there's a club with Atmos now that doesn't require a 12 hour flight.  Thanks Sound Bar.

This weekend I'm in Dallas at The Nines on Friday, and the Married To The Rave festival in Orlando on Saturday.  Come out if you're in the area.

Until next week,

I interview Trifonic on Tap Tempo 006.

This week I'm really pleased to have Trifonic on the show.  Brian Trifon has written some of my favorite downtempo electronic music in the past decade and it's really a pleasure to have him join me for an hour.  We initially met by both going through the BT ranks - he was my predecessor in that environment and a crucial part of my favorite BT record, This Binary Universe.  His own music that followed cut a path that sounds distinctly and only like Trifonic.  He's in his own space, and it's a beautiful space.  It's also jawdroppingly impressive.  He's so immensely talented and the work speaks for itself.   Without a shadow of a doubt, this is my favorite podcast I've recorded so far.  We dive into his creative process, remaining true to one's artistic vision, artistic backgrounds, what actually matters in music (spoiler alert: it's not your production chops) etc...  there's a ton to take away from here.  We also killed a Topo Chico in the freezer. Oops.

All You Need To See is out now

I have a new record out.  It's called All You Need To See.  I've spoken a little bit about it previously, but as a refresh it started off as a remix of my track Clever Girl.  However, it quickly became it's own entity and soon was the opening track for all of my current gigs.  It's pretty melodic and progressive techno-ish material.  I'm a fan.

Here's the link to take a listen/stream/buy on your itunes/spotify/soundcloud/etc...

All You Need To See // Tap Tempo 005 - Clear Skys

Good morning/afternoon/evening,

I have a new record out tomorrow.  It's called All You Need To See.  It's a bit of a progressive and techy roller of a tune, and I've opened up all my recent shows with it. (example... https://soundcloud.com/mattlange/matt-lange-live-at-coda-toronto-06317).  Check your spotif-i-tunes (see what I did there..) tomorrow, or whatever listening platform is your fancy.    

We're driving down to Costa Mesa in just a few minutes.  I'm playing at La Cave.  It's a little bit of an unofficial birthday show, and it's a pretty intimate venue, so it's perfect for tonight.  If you're in the SoCal area, you know where to find me.

Lastly, on Tap Tempo this week I have Clear Skys.  Clear Skys is a very talented Canadian producer who has done a few remixes for me in the past and leans heavily into video game music composition.  Good chat.  As always you can listen to it here: taptempo.libsyn.com

Tap Tempo 004 - Cherch, and a new single/tour dates.

It's been a busy week over here. I spent three days in Toronto this past weekend for the 10 Year Anniversary of mau5trap. We played a big show, lots of fans, lots of artists, and then spent the next day basically sprawled out on the side of Deadmau5's pool. Good times. Exhausting times. It's good to be home.

I've got a new single out next week! It's called "All You Need To See" and it's going out on my own imprint, isorhythm, and we're doing a tour in support of it. There's a list of the officially announced dates on http://www.mattlange.net with info and ticket links attached, and more to be announced later. For those in LA, I'm at Sound this Saturday, and then we're doing a semi unofficial birthday show in Costa Mesa at La Cave in a week on August 2nd. 31 is right around the corner. Eek.

This week on Tap Tempo I've got Cherch at the table. Brian's a grinder. A modern relic, if you will, of the oft romanticized yet forgotten journey of throwing all your gear in a van with your band and dog and touring the entire country for a few months on end, sometimes playing for little more than gas money simply because you fucking love it and it what you're born to do. He's a really engaging storyteller and a good friend. Give him a listen and try not to laugh at some of the debauchery.
