‘Asphalt EP’ from Matt Thibideau on Cynosure Recordings

10 years ago Toronto’s Matt Thibideau (aka Altitude/Coordinates) contributed one of the finest tracks in Cynosure history. Today Matt returns with three brand new cuts and a re-mastered version of the CYN001 classic track entitled “Archenar”

Asphalt starts things off with a cutting edge syncopated groove that precisely reflects the Cynosure sound over the years. A minimal, swingin, synth stab work out giving you the right amount of funk. Archenar smooths things out with some lush pads and a dreamy reverb on the drums creating a subtle washed effect, perfect for the early morning blur. But let’s not forget to mention the killer MS-20 sub bass line.. ahhh so deep.

Icebox comes next with some icy precision FM syncopation in the mix. Accompanied by Matt’s signature classic synth percussion grooves. Full of melody and warmth this track would melt most refrigerators down. Last but not least the outside B track entitled 30 story drop. Following suite with Matt’s previous releases on Blue records under the alias Altitude 30 story drop dives deep into basic channel influenced dub and drops some serious bass.

Matt Thibideau’s return to the label has been long anticipated and proves that Cynosure’s mandate of releasing timeless uncompromising music is still very much alive 10 years on.
