MATRIX & FUTUREBOUND - 'Fire'



Setting standards in the industry ever since they first collaborated in 2005, Matrix & Futurebound possess one of the most impressive track records in Drum and Bass history. Boasting four consecutive Top 40 UK tracks with a back catalogue including hits such as ‘All I Know’, ‘Magnetic Eyes’, ‘Don’t Look Back’ and the legendary ‘Control’ – which recently went Silver in the UK – the production duo are deservedly now two of the most respected names in the business. With a string of hugely successful remixes under their belts including Tine Tempah, Jess Glynne, Birdy, Showtek, and Eric Prydz, the duo return following from the success of ‘Happy Alone’ earlier this year. Bringing the heat on the track is supremely talented singer/songwriter Max Marshall, who previously lent her stunning vocals to the duo’s chart-topping smash ‘Control’. With ‘Control’ reaching #7 on the UK’s Top 40 Singles chart and accumulating over 5.4 million views on UKF and Liquicity’s YouTube channels combined, it’s clear that Matrix & Futurebound and Max Marshall are forces to be reckoned with when paired up in the studio. ‘Fire’ is a masterpiece of uplifting, euphoric Drum and Bass – a style which the duo has seamlessly perfected. Continuing their insistent reign of musical success, 'Fire' is a powerful feel-good track which is sure to catapult Matrix & Futurebound straight back in to the public eye and re-affirm them once again as true pioneers of our scene. Flowing, hypnotic synths build the beat up around dreamy vocals before the track spirals in to an elevated drop driven by a powerful bassline. Snappy percussions run throughout the tune with meticulous precision as ‘Fire’ showcases a skillful fusion between a classically empowering dance track and a straight-up D&B banger.
