Arkestra One is
aged 27 (in 2001). Matthew is currently a registered nurse
working in anaesthetics

since he was young.

struck me the most was the choice of sounds carefully selected to blend
and to create a special ambience. Now he is a member of CS collective
he became Cosmic Sounds COSMONAUT with the launch
of his debut album in April 2002. Arkestra One album is the most
successful CS release so far. The whole album has been licensed by ESL
for USA and also some individual tracks were licensed for several
compilations on Compost, Universal (Germany), Ministry Of Sounds
(Germany), Hed Kandi etc. It was also the most favourite choice for
many of the CS Remixers.
Matthew has been
listening and collecting music for the last 10 years and has been
by everything from Syd Barrett psychedelia through to funk, easy,
and of course jazz. He's into record collecting big time (and there are
so many to get!) Current favourites include obscure 70's library
artists such as Alan Tew/Hawkshaw, Vincent Gemiani, Morricone and
through to the funkier/mellower harmonic side of 60's/70's jazz, think
Dave Pike, George Duke, Quincy Jones, Novi Singers (and to many to
Contemporary influences include DJ Shadow, Air, Jazzanova, Giles
and the Cosmic Sounds collective. Mix these influences with a
latin/bossa Brazil sound and you're getting close to the sound
is Arkestra One! All in all it's a very laid back affair.
