Moving forward Mattia has turned a new corner in his career, after years of development honing his essential and original sound he explores new territory, leaning towards the darker techno end of the spectrum, maintaining the same animated energy he is already known for. His prominent atmospheres are carefully crafted in the studio, and this reflects into his storytelling DJ sets which flicker between different moods that the talented Italian has collected over the years in his home country and his current home of, London. The natural knack in the booth has seen Mattia take his sound to several hotspots including Sisyphos (Berlin) Barcelona, Helsinki, London, Gottingen and Italy.
A prime example of raw technique combined with passion is what we have here, a never ending story of evolution with his sound constantly changing, finding new leases of life, and pockets of creativity from different aspects of his path so far. M.F.S: Observatory may be receiving a curious and gritty new chapter of his journey, but the key elements and beliefs stay the same, and long may that continue.
