Last year we brought French house and techno dynamo, Matt Sassari out to The Room at Superior Ingredients, and it was an absolute smash. His rhythmic minimal house and techno beats stole the hearts of the Brooklyn heads and undoubtedly made for memorable moments for all in attendance. On September 30th at Manhattan's premier dance club, we’re bringing the young DJ/producer back to New York with additional guests Rich NxT, Dimmish and Avante.
2021 was a breakthrough year for Sassari, who’s been toiling away turning heads in the underground since 2012. Even if you haven’t heard his name before, you’ve definitely danced your heart out to his chart-topping release “Give It To Me” —a slinky grinding rework of Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, and Nelly Furtado’s 2007 hit single. The club favorite was the 27th best-selling track on Beatport last year, has racked up over 130M Spotify streams, and received heavy support from everyone from trance heavyweight Brian Kearney to mainstage titan Martin Garrix and house icon Roger Sanchez.
He continued his assault on the speakers in 2022 with over a dozen releases, including a remix of HUGEL and Cumbiafrica’s massive “Morenita” and the debut release for his label SASS. While some use their artist-led labels to release the bits and pieces they couldn’t sign elsewhere, Matt went big, dropping a grinding peak-hour techno banger with the legendary Green Velvet appropriately titled “Dance or Die.”
Matt masterfully slides between peak-hour techno and slinky tech house, lacing every track with his trademark swinging grooves and sub-swelling basslines. With millions of streams across all platforms, his global network of fans stay thirsty for his beats.
Born in Italy and trained at the elite music academy Scuola di Alto Perfezionamento Musicale, Dimmish excels in sound engineering and music production. Since the end of 2018, he's been the top-selling minimal artist, with tracks earning support from industry giants like Marco Carola, Paco Osuna, and Michael Bibi. His releases have been on labels including Solid Grooves, No Art, Eastenderz, and more. Further amplifying his achievements, he's the record label owner of "DENSER"
Rich NxT, one of the original residents at Fuse London since 2008, played a pivotal role in the brand's evolution. From its early days of free afterparties, he elevated FUSE to be one of the most reputable event brands and labels.
Recognized for his expertise in the minimal sound, his influence has been significant in London's rave culture for over a decade. He has been lighting up stages across the globe like his performances We Are FSTVL with Lauren Lo Sung, a b2b set with Seb Zito at ZENfest, a debut set at Miami's Club Space and many more.
Kicking off the night will be New York DJ and producer, Avante, who has lit up dancefloors at Marquee, The Knockdown Center, Williamsburg Hotel and performed alongside Francis Mercier for Deep Root Records.
Matt Sassari is nothing short of a rising superstar with well-established skills behind the decks. However, an appearance in the States is rare. And Musica is a fitting location for his dark and dirty beats. Blending the anonymity of a warehouse with a premium club experience, Musica’s industrial brick-walled design is accented with LED screens and a state-of-the-art sound system.
Musica New York
So don’t miss out on this chance to groove to the funky beat, as Sassari, Rich NxT, Dimmish and Avante are undoubtedly destined to make us dance at Musica and future shows around the world.
