Between 2 Speakers with Allaby
Welcome to 'Between 2 Speakers', where we send out truth-seeking laser-beam questions to musicians, artists and DJ's to find out what makes them tick while at the decks and when away.
With our label event only a few weeks away we are getting the hard facts from all the artists appearing at Prism London. Today we welcome Nano Records artist Allaby.
London-based producer Matt Allaby remains a unique voice for psy-trance in 2019, seamlessly blending his love of hypnotic techno and the minimalist class of the early progressive scene. From drummer to resident Dj in the late 90’s, Allaby quickly established himself as one of the top producers in trance through solid releases with Nano Records, Spiral Trax, Twisted Records, Digital Structures and many more.
Currently finishing his acclaimed S.W.I.M series of EP’s for Nano records, Allaby also has new releases for Iboga and J00F Records on the horizon. Now a well established name with vast experience, we think he’s come of age, Matt says he’s just getting started.
