Hot on the heels of two releases (Escapist and Punish Me), we get a chance to talk to producer, sound designer and Mau5trap artist Matt Lange. I'd first caught wind of Matt with his Ephemera album, released in 2015, but really was floored by the Patchwork album that he released in 2016. I caught his interview on the Pensado's Place video-cast, and was really excited to get a chance to talk to him.
What was fun was to talk to someone that isn't in love with electronics/modulars/gear for the sake of the gear; rather, Matt is into the emotions of music-making, and is one of those people that wants to express as much as impress. But he's got the chops to impress as well, and the combo is a lethal needle-drop.
This discussion is a wild ride through break-ups, scary jobs, poverty and rebirth. But with a family background in the arts, Matt was perfectly set up to succeed in the difficult-to-navigate music industry. If you imagine a smooth ride into Producer's Heaven, you'll want to listen to this podcast to get another (or a more detailed) view.
