MATT BLACK at Metro Times Blowout

When: Thu., April 30, 8 p.m. 2015

Label head for the local hip-hop collective Young Black Souls, sample-happy Matt Black is a producer who’s not afraid to draw on the past to create sounds for today. Trip-hop, jungle, and boom-bap all collide on his excellently-titled, brand new instrumental album Peace to Mateo. The album sounds like it took ages to make; it borders on epic. Totally an artist to look out for, whether you catch his Blowout show or not.
