His touring schedule has continued to take him to his fans all around the world and Summer 2010 saw his play for the first time at Space in Ibiza after many previous seasons spent behind the decks at Amnesia. Headlining party PUSH PUSH, dedicated to showcasing the latest sounds of Berlin and with top billing for new party KehaKuma alongside Guy Gerber, Jamie Jones and Lee Curtiss had made sure of Matthew’s place once again at the top of his game with his new musical direction. After nearly a 3 year break from production Matthew went back in the studio with new creative partner UK legend Lee Burridge and wrote was to become one of the biggest tracks of last year, “Wongel” signed to German label Cecille Records it went on to peak at #6 in the Beatport Tech House charts and #1 on Resident Advisor’s 50 most charted tracks of November 2010. The track was also included on Cocoon compilations “Party Animals” mixed by Nick Curly & Marco Carola, and “Green and Blue” mixed by Steve Bug & Chris Tietjen, as well as Yousef’s “Circus” compilation on CR2. Matthew finished off 2010 strongly on the production front with three big remixes for Jimmy Vallance “Stay in Touch” (Monique Music), Nils Noa “Floyta” (Troll Records), and Leland McWilliams “Viva La Revolution” (Portobolo Records) 2011 will mark the return to A&R for Matthew as he launches his new record label Musik Boutique. The philosophy behind it is to promote and showcase music as the name suggests, specialized and exclusive. Matthew has a strong belief that there is a gap in the market for such a label where artists can freely create the sounds of tomorrow without having to worry about current musical trends or pressure on unit sales. The last 10 years have seen Matthew complete a full 360 transformation through many styles and sounds and have finally brought him back to where he feels the most comfortable expressing his creativity, in underground music.
