Track Of The Day #87: Matthew Dear – Her Fantasy


“Her Fantasy’ is the lead single from inventive New York DJ/artist Matthew Dear’s fourth album ‘Beams’ which is available August 27th (EU/UK) & 28th (North America).Her Fantasy’s looping insistently gloopy summer groove is croaked through with Dear’s almost Bowie-like timbre, before releasing a celebration of kaleidoscopic of chants threaded with psych-sweeps, it’s like opening your eyes for the first time and finding the madness of the modern world totally dizzing. It’s wonderful and today’s soundtrack to this sweltering week.
Director Tommy O’Haver’s video for “Her Fantasy” takes us on a journey through bizarre sequences of debauchery and seduction with a hint of humor, as he pays homage to Avant Garde filmmaker Kenneth Anger in a self-described “mash-up”, watch it below. Also, check out the Australian producer Tornado Wallace’s remix of said single. Matthew Dear’s fourth album Beams is available August 27th (EU/UK) & 28th (North America).

Recorded in Dear's home studio and mixed at Nicolas Vernhes' Rare Book Room studios in Brooklyn, Beams evokes a day-lit dreamworld at once strange and familiar.
