And the good news is… Matt Walsh has made his set from Bugged Out’s birthday at XOYO last weekend available for download. It was clearly a well thought-out set, meticulously crafted with incredible build; from sounds that wouldn’t have seemed out of place in eighties Manchester, trippy at times, it naturally progresses through to some fresh acid-disco with a healthy dash of funk. Matt then accelerates into the third hour, plunging us into a crescendo of cutting edge tech and electro; hugely synonymous with Bugged Out. At times, perhaps somewhat appropriately for the headliner that night, I was also reminded of my student days in London through the odd sentimental nod to the late, great Trash.
For those who are unfamiliar with Matt Walsh, here’s a brief intro. He’s a resident of the mighty Bugged Out and was hand-picked by Tiga to release on his label Turbo Recordings. Matt releases under his own name and also Clouded Vision, where he collaborates with his studio-partner Steve Cook. Clouded Vision then became the name of their record label too. Both solo and with others, Matt has also released on Kitsune, Wax:On, Seinan Recordings and Southern Fried.
So settle in for 3 hours of fantastic records including talent-to-watch like People Get Real, The Love Supreme, Remote, Darabi, Remain, Passarella Death Squad and Gesaffelstein; some of which are ludicrously hot off the press:
