Thor & Matt Thibideau – Transparent Thoughts - Thule Records
Canadian producer Matt Thibideau is a veteran producer who has flown under the radar for far too long, considering the quality of his dub-flecked tech house productions. 'Transparent Thoughts' rides a rock-solid rhythm section, but really it's all about the cavernous splashes of melody that chime out in echo chambers sculpted by someone who really knows their reverb. Thibideau then dons his Altitude alias for a sleeker remix which pares the chords down, re-pitches them and works in some delay for a more delicate trip through dub-tech dynamics. Thule main man ThOr then steps up for a version that edges a little more house-oriented insistence into the groove, creating a more bubbling stew that will go down smooth in an after party scenario or a warm up alike.
