All eyes are on Matt FX. This music polymath is not only a DJ and producer but most notably the man behind the music in Comedy Central’s “Broad City.” Matt FX Feldman is redefining what it means to be a “multipotentialite” within this generation.
His latest project “A Love Beginning // Pero No Te Quiero” is a set of groove-laced bangers dropped just in time to add to your Summer 2021 soundtrack. Featuring vocals by up-and-coming ‘co-creator of the musical universe,’ Melika; these bops are bound to get you into the mood to groove.
LPR Agency provided Deviate with some insight into the meaning behind his latest project.
“A Love Beginning” is a cool, crisp, neon single dripping in vibrant dynamics and lush additional instrumentation from saxophonist and producer Braxton Cook. Reminiscent of Disclosure, Melika’s sleek vocals glide over the beat to create an energetic pulse, accompanying the rise and fall of the track’s melodies. “Pero No Te Quiero” narrates a toxic, yet passionate relationship. With a flare of late 90’s J. Lo and Madonna club vibes, the track is hypnotic and undeniably fun. The hook is spicy and divinely memorable, leaving a lasting imprint as the oscillating synths emit a sharp, sexy shot of energy. Matt’s haunting synth work and Melika’s angelic vocals contrast brilliantly in how they feel, relating further to the overall conflicted nature of the song.
Matt shares, “The music is inspired by these little moments of hope, pain, and wonder that you go through in specific circumstances. In a funny way, I feel like both songs sort of apply to this idea of seeing someone special across a room and immediately having all these thoughts race through your head” (LPR Agency).
This collaboration is bound to make waves in the music scene. Their inherent & resounding knowledge of the music industry plus their passion and creativity make for a very special production. Joining forces to create lyrical & musical magic has proven astounding, and they are clearly just getting started.
This dynamic duo is certainly a Deviate. We are eager to see all of what 2021 has to offer Matt FX & Melika!
