We've been sitting on this one for a while, but it puts a big damn smile on our faces to officially announce that Sydney artist MUTO has joined the UNDR Ctrl talent roster.
And what a way to announce too, following last night's stunning performance at our EMC Showcase with the likes of Flume, Daniel Johns, KLP and Slumberjack all watching in the crowd.
Kicking structure, genre and stereotype out the window, MUTO has delivered a brand new single Through The Fog - as premiered on triple j this week.
Not ones to toot their own horn too much however the Of Leisure records crew (his label), reckon there are those moments when you hear something truly original that make you really appreciate why you got into music in the first place. The productions of Sydney’s Northern Beaches beatmaker MUTO are the exact reminder of this.
They could go into more detail about how Flume and Odesza think he’s gonna be big, that Zan, Dom and Dave Ruby from Triple J have championed his previous singles and that FBi Radio have added them both to rotation however in this instance, but we just want you to listen to the music.
Through The Fog is an instrumental rollercoaster ride of percussion, bass lines and truly weird synthesizers, however despite its eclectic sounds and structure you can’t help but just hit the repeat button. Accompanying the single is Lighter, a smorgasbord of extensive percussion samples resulting in a B-Side that could well and truly cut through on its own accord.
In celebration of the release MUTO will be hosting a Single Launch at 107 Projects Art Rooftop, Redfern on December 14. A strictly limited number of tickets are available here
