Laurence Matte

It's brave to resist the crowd's lust for a big drop or obvious track, but that's what Laurence Matte does when she casts a spell on the dance floor on her own terms. Her long and winding DJ sets are fluid and responsive trips that are often slow-burning.

Genres become blurred as she threads together steamy jungle dubs, psyched-out and percussive grooves and loose-limed rhythms that have transfixed crowds everywhere from Piknic Électronik in her native Montréal to Heart in Ibiza, Standard Time in Toronto and Teksupport in New York.

As a producer, she has released on Piknic Électronik Montréal, Ritmo Fatale, and a full EP on whypepeopledance that spans slow-motion electro depths, ambient sci-fi electronics and tripped-out dark disco chug. In these times of instant gratification and short-lived pleasures, Laurence Matte is defying convention with the art of slow-motion sonic seduction and lasting emotional rewards.
