MATTE Looks to Add a New Dimension to Dance Music

Matte is a boutique company that encompasses several artistic outlets.  Music, production, film, and “aesthetics,” which is basically a kind way to say “we have amazing taste and make your shit look great.”  They’re putting on a three-part concert series called “Painted BLACK,” where musical acts will be paired with visual artists, stage builders, sculptors, fashion designers, and filmmakers to create unique and individualized artistic pieces to accentuate the audio.

The first act will take place February 13 at New York’s Irving Plaza, and will feature music from electronic music producers Klangkarussell, Thomas Azier, Stefan Biniak, and a DJ set from Little Dragon.  Earmilk asked for mix submissions from DJs to find an opening act for this event, and the winner should be announced in the next few days.  You can check BLACK-NYC.COM for video from last year’s event and more details for next week’s show.  You can also peep the teaser video below featuring model Sarah Stephens getting covered in paint.  For the win.
