Three years ago, my good friend Adam and I travelled to Burlington, VT in the dead of winter following our favorite band at the time, The New Deal, to Higher Ground. After their high energy set, and the festivities that followed, we were treated to some rousing original beats by many of Adam's friends from CT. Most notably, for me, was Matt Gutt, who shortly after starting up his laptop and hitting a few buttons on his MPC, had several people asking through the night, "Is that Bassnectar?"
Comparisons aside, Matt Gutt, now $ubPRIME has come into a good sound of his own. According to his MySpace Page , Gutt says he, "...is currently finishing up a live remix PA and looking for gigs in the greater Burlington, Vermont area starting at the end of August." Definitely looking forward to that.
Check him out!
