2008 release. Matthew Dear's eagerly-awaited Body Language mix is a very personal selection, and one which reflects his own artistic interests, concerns and strategies. In a sense, he approached the project literally, seeking to explore aspects of both the "body" and "language" in his selection and ultimately achieve a marriage of the two. Matthew's celebrated 2007 album Asa Breed was remarkable in its organic synthesis of vocals and house grooves, and that same synthesis lies at the heart of this mix; if you listen carefully, you'll hear that every track featured on Body Language 7 employs a vocal or "language" of some kind -- some explicit and pronounced, some broken down or indistinct. Meanwhile, the mix's rhythmic default is one of sinewy, dancefloor-aimed 4x4 grooves, "body" music at its purest and most devastating. Artists: Dinamoe, Kalabrese, Sascha Dive, Samuel Davis, Kid Sublime, Johnny D, Martinez, Diz, Johnny D, Mlle Caro & Franck Garcia, Radio Slave, Prompt, DJ Koze, I:Cube, Soulphiction, Two Armadillos, Seth Troxler, Patrick Russell, Even Tuell, Basti Grub and Lorenzo.
