Nikko.Z's Dopamine White welcomes Matias Rojas aka M.Rojas to the label for his debut EP. Based in Buenos Aires, the Argentinean artist first made his name as a DJ, sharing the booth with some of his country's greats, such as Soundexile, Mariano Mellino, Kevin Di Serna, Simon Vuaranbom, Mike Griego, Facundo Mohr, Marcelo Vasami and Juan Deminicis. 2019 then saw Matias begin to produce, eventually landing releases on Balkan Connection and Clinique Recordings. Now presenting his first release of 2021, M.Rojas debuts on Dopamine White with ‘Ruderalis'. 

Beginning with the title selection Matias explores traditional progressive house sensibilities. Tough yet warm, a well contoured groove sets the piece in motion as striking percussion adds swing to the framework. Dynamic effects and arpeggiated fragments converge for heartfelt moments as the first act unfolds, before haunting chord changes transfer energy into the main break. Tastefully tranquil, the centerpiece heightens emotion, as a wave of noise sparks the arps and groove to drop for a thunderous finale. 

The companion piece ‘Girl Scout Cookies' follows with an equally enticing storyboard. Once again backed by a buoyant foundation, it's a maze of cosmic effects and heartfelt melodies which slowly saturate your senses. Haunting overlays sweep across the framework, adding emotion with each successive loop, while spine tingling modulation highlights a glowing break, before eventually sparking a powerful finale. It rounds out a stunning two track offering from M.Rojas, who makes an excellent Dopamine White debut.
