Stix Records, a sub-label of Favorite Recordings, is back with some heavy dub cuts from label regular Mato. Starting his reggae production career in 2006, Thomas Blanchot aka Mato has released music through various projects on EDR Records, Big Singles or Makasound… In the meantime, he developed a real trademark: taking over classics French, Hip-Hop, or Pop song, into roots reggae-dub new versions. Besides, since 2010, Mato has built a solid reputation thanks to his hot remixes of Hip-Hop classics on Stix Records.
Today, Mato is back with another target for his special skills as a tailor of reggae music, this time focusing on classic musical themes from R. Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra” and Herbie Hancock’s “Maiden Voyage “. It’s a great sensation to hear these melodies turned into superbly crafted Dub monsters. As Mato once said, “Play it loud and burn a chalice!”
