The EP won the support of the scene’s dedicated fan base a well as rave reviews by music journalists. The momentum and the word of mouth helped Your Chin play a whole bunch of festivals and club dates through the res of the year and the next one. The journey started with Raxit’s love for brining varied sounds together into great composition. Your Chin has a danceable lively electro pop sound layered with muddy beats that lend his seemingly indecipherable urban lyrics a joyful complexity.

Scatter Nature was a gradual progression of his sound and made more people sit up and take notice. It is more layered and handles themes darker and more mature than the first one. Your Chin recently won “Song of the year” Award at the VH1 Soundnation Awards. He has opened for Grammy winner Gotye at the Oz Fest even in New Delhi at Blue Frog. Fall Someplace, a track from the EP was chosen as the promotional song for “A Summer’s Day” Festival headlined by Norah Jones in 2013.

Matt Nash:

Energy and persistence conquers all things. That has certainly been the case with the UK’s Matt Nash, a DJ and producer whose passion and determination have enabled him to rise from his local London scene to forge his own space amongst the global landscape of electronic music.

Deeply immersed in London’s thriving and diverse music scene from the age of fifteen, Matt has grown exponentially as an artist over the subsequent years. Self-assured and full of drive from the very start, he applied a keen ear and thirst for self-development to those around him in order to grow and mature as both a DJ and producer. This hard work has spawned an artist who today, now based in Amsterdam, is both a standout DJ and highly adept producer. Whilst behind the decks in a club, Nash is a natural performer who utilizes encyclopaedic knowledge of house to strengthen an already innate connection with his dancefloors and light up the atmosphere at places like the Revealed stage at Creamfields and Ushuaia in Ibiza. As a producer, he combines a remarkable ear for melody with an instinctive ability to infuse his music with energy, personality and attitude.

His tracks made fast inroads into electronic music culture courtesy of releases on a plethora of dance music mainstays, from Axwell’s Axtone to Hardwell’s Revealed. Probing the tips of the big room, electro and progressive house trends but keeping the roots solid, he has enticed fellow DJ’s and genre specific fans. Highlights so far include two tracks on Tiesto’s album, ‘Starlight’ with Don Diablo released on Axtone and ‘Till The End’ featuring Tara McDonald on Marcus Schossows’ label Code Red. ‘Fire Higher' with Sebjak featuring Eric Turner came on Ultra with the premiere on Proximity receiving over 150k plays in 48 hours.

Added to that, further success looks to follow for Nash with his collaboration with AN21 ‘Louder’ coming on Size Records and currently being hammered by Steve Angello, plus 'Heartbeats' coming on Kryders ‘Sosumi’ label which has been getting played and supported by the likes of Steve Angello, Kryder, Tom Staar to name a select few.

With a smooth approach to the sound he delivers, the house music advocate is in a league of his own, dominating one beat to the next. The coming days are your cue to tune into the electric Matt Nash noise.
