Le Matos is a Montreal-based electronic duo. The group consists of Jean-Nicolas Leupi, Jean-Philippe Bernier, and Vincent Menard. Le Matos released a double album on December 5, 2015 that was inspired by Turbo Kid. The first album, Chronicles of the Wasteland, is an original album that was influenced by the movie Turbo Kid. The second album is the soundtrack for the album. For the basis of this review, I will be focusing on the first part.
Chronicles of the Wasteland features ten original tracks. When listening to the introduction, I wasn’t sure how effective it was for the remainder of the songs. Yet, after listening to the subsequent tracks, I was addicted to the album! I highly enjoyed the instrumentals on each track particularly No Tomorrow and Wasteland. Furthermore, the inclusion of No Tomorrow featuring the vocals of Pawws was a good decision. There is not a weak song in the bunch. It will definitely remain on my playlists for the upcoming weeks.
If you enjoy electronic music in general or liked the movie Turbo Kid, I would recommend checking out Chronicles of the Wasteland by Le Matos.
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
