Mateos has been making music for more than a decade, always cooking up unique sounds that take electronic music in interesting new directions. He has found favor with the likes of Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, and Joseph Capriati for his energetic dancefloor workouts on labels like Toolroom, Circus Recordings and Time Has Changed, all while also running his own Flow Musique outlet with friend Davirus. He has been a resident at Sankeys Ibiza as well as playing all around Europe and now draws on all those experiences for this new project.

2021 will see Mateos release a series of 12 singles, one per month throughout the year. Things kicked off in January with the stellar "La Vida" which picked up support from the likes of Mixmag, Faze, and DMC world and had DJ like Anthony Pappa, Stacey Pullen & Terry Francis all showing the love. Now the story continues with "Origen", a stripped back and hypnotizing slice of deep, tech leaning house with an off-kilter and mesmerizing feel. Muted melodies, tight drum programming, and twisted vocal FX all add to the sense of mystery on this standout single.
