About the artists
He does well swung drums as well as bass, main room house and deeper, musically accomplished offerings that stir real emotion. Still young but with experiences in the booth and studio well beyond his years, he has a fine array of tools at his disposal. Proof of that lies in his varied and vital discography. Coming on labels like Hypercolour, Tsuba and 20: 20 Vision, it includes many club hits and plenty of handy DJ weapons, but also an ambitious and widescreen debut album on Aus Music, which has become a regular home. Always refusing to stay in one sonic niche for too long, Huxley—whether working solo or with close friends like Sam Russo or Ethyl—switches up his sound, tries new things and colours outside the lines with every new outing. Not afraid of a big hook or slaying bassline, he is an artist who unites a variety of sounds, styles and scenes with ease, and always proves as fun as he is well informed.
Whether it is opening, primetime or aftershow, Mathias’ intuition for the crowd and location, proves each time again that he lives for his profession. His music is both distinctly ambitious and refreshing. In a playful approach, he creates an incredible repertoire of feelings that reproduces within the crowd. Mathias’ various sets include the following sound features: funky, freaky, dashing, dub, slamming, enriched by African and South American percussions.
