"In 1993, at the age of 17, Taho already played his first live acts at various raves around Paris. Immediately he attracted the attention of Laurent Garnier, and soon this led to two 12" releases on his label F-Communication -- Vertige EP and Elle EP. After that, Taho disappeared for quite a while. Along with some artist friends he founded the audiovisual label Lumina, which is mainly present on the www. Now Sub Static brings him back to vinyl with this 12" Digital Matter, which actually lies astonishingly close to his early releases, regarding style and attitude. Right after the first seconds it's clear that Taho lost his heart in Detroit, thus the tracks are just sparkling of melodic escapades and the right portion of lovely kitsch. However, the track 'Matter; turns out to be quite a sturdy floor-smasher with an incomparable atmosphere -- captain future goes disco?! The B-side, 'Butterfly', is rather a springtime ode, with blissful peaks of melody and continuously condensing harmonies. But finally Taho's own description of his pieces should be worth a quote: 'the song 'Matter' tells the story of matter creation in the universe, somewhere lost in deep space. And 'Butterfly' is a story in a luminous world where spring is eternal'."
