Matthias Vogt makes his Reflections debut with new single ‘A Dream Fulfilled’, alongside the incredible Hans Berg.
Matthias Vogt’s production journey is unconventional to say the least. His early influences came from church, jazz band and Frankfurt’s underground, so his music is a sonic melting pot. Over his decades-long career, Vogt has released dozens of albums under various aliases, including Motorcitysoul and [re:jazz], but his eponymous Matthias Vogt project is where his passion for electronic music, club culture and deep listening intertwine.
His first releases as Matthias Vogt were deep house productions on labels like Polytone Recordings, Saw Recordings and Komplex De Deep. His first release on Anjunadeep came out in 2015, a 3-track house EP that treads the line between hopeful and melancholy. His work took a turn in 2022 with the release of his Pianissimo album, which he describes as a political project. He took away the beats, the bass and the breaks and replaced them with slow-moving music accompanied by soundbites from climate change activists.
On 'A Dream Fulfilled', the trained piano player and jazz musician mixes his eclectic musical range with Hans’ raw talent to create a beautiful and moving track. Vogt has always been fascinated by the work of Hans, and their collaboration pushed Vogt’s creativity in unexpected ways. Berg used a series of prolonged notes stretched out over several minutes, taking up a lot more space than Vogt is used to, however he liked the structure so much he used it as a blueprint for many of the others on the album.
Alongside the release of the single and album, Matthias has tour dates lined up including Anjunadeep Open Air in Finsbury Park, Gans Anders Festival, plus additional dates across Germany.
