Matthias Vogt follows up his first single on Reflections with the double AA side 'My Life / Under The Moon Over The Sky', alongside Johanna Klein. This is the second release from his upcoming album 'Ten As One', out on August 7th.
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 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.
His 'Ten As One' album was supposed to follow similar themes, but instead it developed into an album of exploration and collaboration. Vogt saw an opportunity to connect with some of his favourite artists, one being Johanna Klein, a freestyle jazz musician. The pair collaborated on four tracks on this album, including the second single and album opener 'My Life' and 'Under The Moon Over The Sky'. Klein’s clean, simple vocals work harmoniously alongside Vogt’s emotive Japanese keys that marry minimalism and complexity.
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.
