D/B Recommended: Matthew Dear (Live) @ Berghain Berlin | 01.12.2010

Matthew Dear, backed up by his live band, will present his latest album, Black City, today at the Kantine am Berghain.

[audio:Matthew Dear – i_know_howser.mp3]Released in August, Black City (Ghostly International) is the fourth album from this american music producer/dj (following the acclaimed Asa Breed).

It’s a nocturnal vision of electronic funk, in the vein of late ’70 Eno/Bowie productions/early new wave: layered, slightly altered vocals, hypnotic patterns, liquid synths. Call it a retro-vision of the future, if you like.

Black City can be something to dance to, but it can also be a perfect album for those expensive headphones you’ve just bought, given the huge amount of little details in the mix.
