REVIEW: MATTN vs 2 Faced Funks - How We Roll out on Smash The House / Armada Music

Fresh off the back of her edit of the massive ‘Café Del Mar’, MATTN is back and better than ever on Smash The House with her new track ‘How We Roll’, a collaboration with Dutch duo 2 Faced Funks, who themselves are following up on tracks on the mighty Armada Music and Oxygen Recordings. The combination is a match made in heaven, as the outcome of this musical matrimony is a peak-time club cut primed to make itself heard across the globe and into the sets of the world’s best DJ’s for the foreseeable future.

‘How We Roll’ is full of skippy snares, hardstyle kicks and a bassline that rips its way through the track, guaranteed to cause chaos on the dancefloor. A progressive house style pluck punctuates the track, joined by bursts of synths that keep the listener on their toes. The breakdown teases the elements as they filter up, leading a sea of lush tones to descend on the track before the pounding beats are dropped, pushed along by a low end arpeggio that rumbles underneath menacingly.

The production talent on show in ‘How We Roll’ is evident, as both artists have undoubtedly brought their A-game to a track that could be the biggest yet for both of them. Having toured the world at places such as Dubai, France, Russia, Germany, Jakarta and Brazil collectively, it goes without saying you will be hearing a lot more from both of these artists in the coming months, as they continue their meteoric rise.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]MATTN vs 2 Faced Funks present their Smash The House debut with How We Roll. Super energising and super exciting festival progressive house banger with heavy aggressive hard-style basslines, pumping punchy drums and breakdown that applies the melody from the well known trance anthem Greece 2000 by Three Drives On A Vinyl. Actually it would be so fantastic idea if the whole track was recreation of this track with some cool vocals rather naughty MC style party vocals. Anyway its big party anthem that will drive the festival goers dizzy and help them escape from their problems and experience the dream of the ultimate world domination. #PureBassPower Love It [/content]
