The Lab NYC is Mixmag and Smirnoff Sound Collective's weekly afterwork party where we stream the best American and international DJs from the intimate space connected to our Brooklyn office. This Friday Mixmag welcomes Mat.Joe to The Lab NYC to showcase their distinct “crispy urban house”.
The Berlin-based duo of Mat.Joe, aka Matze and Johannes, have been steadily climbing the ranks thanks to releases on esteemed house labels Strictly Rhythm, Exploited and Hottrax, among others. Their musical style fuses rhythmic soul and hip hop elements with forms of house, delivering deep, rich productions aimed squarely at the dancefloor. Following a string of gigs in their native country Germany, Mat.Joe will make their way across the Atlantic for a seven date tour of the states, making stops in NYC, Dallas, San Francisco and Chicago.
The Smirnoff Sound Collective is all about bringing fans closer to the DJs, providing up and coming talent with a solid platform and throwing unique events where fans and artists can party together. Check out more from the Sound Collective here
