Matthew Dekay is a Berlin based, Dutch electronic music composer.
With an international career spanning over more than a decade Matthew was first exposed to electronic music in the early 90's listening to composers like Vangelis and Terry Riley at a young age. This paved the way for Matthew to grow up and become a classically trained musician with a strong fixation for synthesizers. Today, it is these two factors coupled with his never ending hunt for new technology that helped define his signature style of production.
Matthew relocated to Berlin in 2009, which provided him with a fresh musical understanding and appreciation. Soon after, Lee Burridge came over from London to work in the studio and they finally finished their first collaborative success on Cecile Records, "Wongel" Next came "Out of Order" also released on Cecile and the pair continued to work together on the All Day I Dream concept with tracks "Gemini Spell", "Fur Die Liebe" and "Holding On" all released on the label.
Next up came their remixes for Ian Pooley's track "Groove Me" followed by "Tubby" released on Lee Burridge's second new label Get Weird and then the pair produced what was to be their most successful record to date on German label Innervisions. "Lost In A Moment" Also remixed by label owner Dixon it has become the name used by Innervisions for their global party series "Lost In A Moment"
Matthew finished 2012 with a widely respected featured podcast in December on Resident Advisor "RA 342"
In 2013 Matthew continued to release music with his remix of Active Child's "Johnny Belinda" which he made free for a limited time downloadable on his Soundcloud page. He also launched his new project Fur Die Liebe and in March 2014 released his first FDL mix compilation.
Also this year as well as continuing to tour the world Matthew signed a 3 track EP "Amity" to Mano Le Tough's new label Maeve featuring the tracks "Fangtango" and Patience Please" both which have become hugely successful since the release in July.
After completing a metamorphosis through many styles and sounds, Matthew is now where he feels the most comfortable in expressing his creativity, making beautiful music that touches the soul.
