We’re welcoming Italian-born Matisa on the FMB Mixtape this week. Having started her music career playing the piano and oboe, Matisa expanded into DJing and music production, releasing her debut EP in 2019. As usual, we fired over some questions to her:
Happy new year everyone, 2023 is off to a great start and have the feeling this year is going to be a crazy one :) I am so happy that my first mix of the year is with you guys, honestly, a dream come true! I am really honoured!
I have been working on new music for 2023 and have some exciting releases coming up… I recently played an after-party during Milan fashion week for the brand DSQUARED2, it was a nice way to connect with a different crowd and the show was amazing
My mix was recorded at home in Florence, all vinyl recording on Technic 1200 turntables and an Allen & Heath Xone 92 mixer.
I dug through my collection for this one, re-discovering some of my sexy and groovy tracks. Adding some of my first vinyl purchases like Kamasutra – Running Away from 1993.. a really special track that holds loads of special memories for me. My idea for the mix was to bring people into another dimension. I imagined the reasons and what makes us dance, the primitive act of movement, deep sounds and the beauty of harmony we find in music. A spiritual moment for all of you, are you ready?
Up to next?
Aside from some new music coming, I am ready to take on the year with both hands, move things forward and grow.
