One thing that can be said about Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records is that the releases are consistently awesome time and time again. On Saved’s most recent release they feature German producer and Keinemusik co-founder &ME. Well renowned for his unique soulful sound, &ME kills it with the masterful production ‘Matters’. This tune is so packed with rhythm that it is a sure guarantee to take any mix to the next level. One thing in specific that sticks out above all in this track is the unique breakdown and buildup. At around 1:00 of the track there is a percussive buildup that sounds as if Tommy Lee was giving us a drum solo. That infused with a narrative creepy sample keeps the listener intrigued yearning for the drop. The people who criticize tech house music tend to say that it may be repetitive or ask “Where is the drop?”. It is safe to say not one person will be asking that when referring to ‘Matters’.
