With the long-awaited arrival of their Mystery Machine LP comes a cut that captures the epic vibrations Matrix & Futurebound conjure up so well. Able to flex on dancefloor burners just as flawlessly as they can get those hands in the air, “Hindsight” dives even deeper into the emotionally charged heart of what the duo is capable of.
Easing into things with a dreamscape sure to have you flashing back to those long nights under the stars, “Hindsight” evokes a vibe that is at once heartbreaking and uplifting. With the stark vocals helping bring on the goosebumps, it’s the orchestral elements that bring it all together in a swirling whirlwind of emotion that unloads on the heart of the tune proper. Once the shivering percussive elements come stepping in, the slow-grinding lift-off sizzles atop a subtle breakbeat that hovers just beneath the surface.
Packing instant crossover appeal, “Hindsight” is one of those cuts that can bridge the gap between your headphones and the festival stage. As Matrix and Futurebound tell it, the tune “had a very cinematic feel about it and a nod to our old-school roots with the breakbeat verses.” Throw in a little vocal from Dave Gibson, and the tune stands in a class all its own while also fitting into the “M&F jigsaw puzzle” their Mystery Machine LP puts on full display.
As if that weren’t enough, the duo is scheduled to touch down at EDC Las Vegas next month, so use this one to get you in the mood for what is sure to be one of the most electrifying sets of the weekend.
Available April 12 via Metro / Viper Recordings.
