While it’s easy for artists to collaborate virtually, the latest track from Matthew Dear, Joe Goddard and Eats Everything came to be in a way unique only to them. Dear, best known for his dance and experimental pop music, connected with Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard over some out of the box portraits he had drawn, and the two ended up making “Love Games” together.
Enlisting underground beatmaker Eats Everything to add the final touches, “Love Games” entered the world as an entrancing industrial tech house track ready for the boom of summer. Retro accents abound, we hear analog synth bits merge with heavily-edited vocals and other glitchy accents to make quite the infectious, danceworthy number. Its catchiness was quickly noticed by Catz ‘n’ Dogz, who signed it onto their Pets Recordings imprint.
