Describing his sound as a marrying of the darker parts of electronic and pop music, Matiryaloka draws on a myriad of influences, combining underground sensibilities with modern mainstream production. Feeling unfulfilled whilst playing in a number of post-hardcore bands growing up in a small village in Germany, he was eventually drawn to studying music production in Berlin, which led to composing not only for short films, and songwriting for other artists, but also gave him the inspiration for his first EP. This experience in composing for films has perhaps lent a hand in forming his debut EP "Drama Disc" – all songs are connected by theme where his penchant for storytelling comes to the forefront. Including his own visual artwork, Matiryaloka takes care to make every bit of his tale true to his own imagination. He strives to bend the boundaries of a sometimes static and uninspired scenery, forging experimental and unusual timbres in such a way that it provides people with a wider range of perspective and self consciousness, whilst also bridging the gap between mainstream and underground.
