Matthew Herbert

Matthew Herbert is forty-seven years old, is English and one of the geniuses of contemporary music. Twenty-three self-titled albums, plus half a dozen like Doctor Rockit, Radio Boy and Wishmountain, and countless EPs ranging from classic labels such as Phono and Clear, to more recent ones such as Curle or Hypercolour. It is more than twenty years of music defined by experimental aesthetics, and the balance between outrageous sampling and groove for the dance floor, in which also relies the bedrock of his own label, Accidental, that Matthew founded in 2000, and counts close to one hundred and fifty releases. Having Matthew Herbert playing records for us at Parque da Pasteleira, in July, will be one of the most awaited moments of this Elétrico Festival!
