d’Voxx is a live electronic music project courtesy of Paul Borg and Nino Auricchio. Using only new modular instruments for live performance works, they explore the post-digital landscape working within the constraints of an analogue domain. d’Voxx reject the notion of preservation for a more transitory paradigm. Seeking to explore the space between live performance and recorded artefact, and through their recordings they document the collaborative progress of the artist, and the new modular instrument.
d’Voxx has evolved over the past three years through a series of acclaimed live performances at festivals and expos across Europe, including Music Tech Fest at Funkhaus studios, Berlin, Superbooth_17 and 18, Berlin, and St. Louis, Rome. In the UK they have performed at the Belgrave Music Hall in Leeds, the We Are Robots festival in London, the Attenborough Centre in Brighton, ‘Bells n Whistles Crackles n Pops’ in Cambridge, The Readin Pop festival, and the London College of Music’s annual electronic music week event, which included the world premiere of a live new modular performance in 3D-Audio.

Acclaimed electronic producer Matthew Hodson presents his exciting new project, MATTHS, with ‘Velocet’ released on FatCat Records’ sub label FCR on 17 May 2019.
With his debut MATTHS release, the Brighton-based artist presents two stunning, atmospheric soundscapes ‘Velocet’ and ‘Loop’ which both immediately captivate the listener with their masterful, brooding beats. Using a bespoke modular synthesiser setup, MATTHS has designed and compiled a unique musical instrument that enables the creation of textures and tones specific to personal creative concepts.
Recent MATTHS performances include opening for Wire; supporting Alex Banks (Monkeytown Records), Ulrich Schnauss and Rival Consoles (Erased Tapes). MATTHS has worked with the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop on their new material at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios. In May, MATTHS will play the Superbooth Festival in Berlin.
MATTHS is supported by leading electronic musicians including Steve Mac (These Machines / Rhythm Masters), Tim Exile, and Alex Banks.
