‘Tuhoronuku’ by Matawaka   (November 25, 2011)

Matawaka creates a beautiful fusion between the Maori traditional sound and the more modern “dubstep” on their first single.  Peacefully resolving the dub aesthetic with the world-based-instrumentation is no easy task, and any bloated ego would, of course, take the dub-extremist position (thus ruining the original Maori theme).  However, intelligence and classy assertion pays off as ‘Tuhoronuku’ entices the electronica based atmosphere into a new mold.
