Re: Any love for Matthew Herbert?
I think it's been more than 15 years that he's pretty much my main inspiration and #1 favorite artist. I used to mix his tracks back when I was DJing house music in the late 90s early 00s, then I lost track of him cause I was listening to different music, and when I went to see him live on his goodbye swingtime tour, I didn't know his album, he began with "turning pages" and I bursted into tears, this is how his music touches me. I absolutely love all he has done, and I have a special place in my heart for his recomposition of Mahler 10th (Mahler happens to be, by far, my favorite classical composer).
I didn't get it at first, then I got to listen to it on a large dose of shrooms, and it may have been the deepest musical experience I ever had, it blew my mind open to unimaginable ideas and possibilites.
my most precious dream would be to be on accidental records and have dinner with the actual guy.
To me, he's the best artist who ever walked the face of the earth. Sue me!
He's my rolemodel, inspiration, teacher, he's the father of all the music I make.
I never really been a fan of anything or anyone, but I'm Herbert #1 fan for sure <3
