L.A.-based producer/composer/DJ Matt Lange delivers a darkly melodic breed of electronic music rooted in raw energy and emotion. Hand-selected by Deadmau5 as one of the most unique artists to sign to his label mau5trap; the lifelong musician now has coined his own genre, Langecore, and creates some of today’s most meticulously crafted sounds and sets. Because we are so mystified by what we hear, Lange this week’s highly suggested DJ to Watch.
In today’s deeply saturated market of producers, it’s common to feel like we’re hearing carbon copies of one song after the next, but when Lange comes through the shuffle, it sparks a double take. Drawing inspiration from his younger days in a boys’ choir and time spent strumming the lead guitar in a metal band, you can feel his influences stem from much more than past producers. His music has soul, acute attention to detail, and quality of enchantingness that demands to be felt in a dark strobe-light club.
Just last week, Lange shared 3 new songs in an EP titled, Diversions. Equally ominous as they are entertaining, his new music is brilliant. On June 1st you can catch him live at Bar Smith, grab your tickets here.
