This weekend is HUGE if you’re in the Northeastern United States and like bass music. The Hydrotechnics Festival, this Friday through Sunday in Afton NY,  is filled to the brim with variety of music that’ll get them bass cannons humming.  Bringing the drum & bass heat is Matteo Cavo AKA MAZTEK.  FCK YES! was lucky and caught MAZTEK for a few quick questions.  Click here for the FCK YES! EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH MAZTEK.

 

FCK YES! –  HOW THE FCK ARE YOU?

MAZTEK – I’m FCK’ing good man!  Touring in the FCK’ing states.

FY! – WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO PLAY DRUM N BASS?  OR DID IT CHOOSE YOU?

M – I chose Drum & Bass because it’s hard, dark, dirty, and it’s a fusion of different music styles.

FY! -WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELAX?

M - I go cycling or be outdoors with my dogs or BBQ with friends whenever I can.

FY! -WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DRUM AND BASS RECORD/ALBUM?

M - My forthcoming album on Renegade Hardware  : )

FY! -YOU’RE PLAYING AT THE HYDROTECHNIS FESTIVAL AT ECHO LAKE IN NY THIS WEEKEND.  ARE THERE ANY OTHER SHOWS THAT YOU ARE PLAYING WHILE IN THE STATES?

M - I already did Miami, Atlanta, Puertto Rico.  I’ll be playing in San Diego tonight and then Boston.

FY! -DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF THE TRACKS YOU’RE GOING TO PLAY WHEN YOU PEFORM?  OR IS IT ALL ON THE FLY?

M - No.  I mean, I know what tunes I like the most and which ones I’m gonna drop for sure. But, I don’t have a premade playlist.  It’s all on the fly, if not I would be bored.

FY! -WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT SO FAR AS A DJ/PRODUCER?

M - I’m proud to be here in the States and to be playing the Hydrotechnics Festival at Echo Lake in NY.

FY! -WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VENUE THAT YOU HAVE PLAYED?

M - I don’t want to pick just one, there are so many venues I really love.

FY! -WHAT IS NEXT FOR MAZTEK?

M - I’m finishing my album for Hardware then I got an EP coming out on Cause4Concern Records, one on Black Out, and one on Bad Taste.  I also have a few remixes coming out soon.

FY! -FINISH THIS SENTENCE:  DRUM N BASS IS….. 

M - FCK’ing MASSIVE!

You know what day it is?  HUMP DAY!  If you’re like me you’re tank is tipping on empty and could use some get up and go to help make it to Friday.  I got just the thing:  some DANK ass drum n bass from the likes of MAZTEK.  Matteo Cavo aka MAZTEK hails from Haarlem, Netherlands and has been putting the drop on drum n bass for 10 years.  His brand of DNB is heavy on the neurofunk but is always a dance floor pleaser.  With countless singles and mixes and remixes, MAZTEK is becoming a staple in the world of drum n bass.  BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!  If you’re in the Northeast United States you can catch MAZTEK at the Hydrotechnics Festival this weekend (July 25-27) at the New Echo Lake Resort.  Tickets are only $85 for all weekend with camping included.  The venue is FCK’ing slicker than grease and the line up is stacked with tons of bass music.  Come get some this weekend!  In the mean time get pumped with this mix from MAZTEK.  Free download?  FCK YES!
