Matt Weiner AKA TWINS (That Which Is Not Said) has been making synth pop, gritty house and electronica for labels like Ruralfaune and Clan Destine for the past few years and recently launched his own CGI imprint which has already played host to some top drawer 4/4 goodness from the likes of Will Azada and Alex Falk.
He’s now set to join the discography of his own label with a brilliant 12” of smokey house entitled “Love Is A Luxury”, sure to find its way into the crates of the great and the good of the electronic music world. The two tracks contained within showcase his talent for creating atmospheric electronica injected with a hefty amount of dark funk.
He’s also kindly delivered us a rather nice guest mix to further showcase his sound and he had this to say about it.
“For this mix I wanted to present a cross-section of moods and styles that suitssome of my current influences. I start the mix out with a chunk of older records dug up from various Atlanta record stores and gradually move into more contemporary territory. I wanted to include some overlooked gems with some more widely appreciated works and to create a dialogue between house, techno, acid, and synth pop records old and new.”
