Matthew Herbert Announces Retrospective Boxset Herbert Complete—Get FREE Download Of Track "Suddenly"
British artist Matthew Herbert‘s been making music for many, many years—and today sees the announcement of a major boxset looking back over his career from 1996 to 2006. Called Herbert Complete it covers the many musical styles and experiments he’s traversed and undertaken under his Herbert moniker.
The iTunes boxset will feature photos, rare material, remixes by Plaid, DJ Koze, Mr. Oizo, Recloose, and B-sides. Along with special edition albums spanning his early days on the house scene of the 1990s, releasing music on small independent record labels that have long ceased to exist, to his 12" collection 100lbs and kitchen sound dance album Around the House.
It’ll also showcase his seminal audio experiment Bodily Functions, where he forgoes drum machines and synthesizers in favor of sampling the sounds of various body parts, like teeth, bones, and even an unborn child. And finishes with the aural opulence of Scale, recorded with an 80-piece orchestra.
The boxset will be released on Accidental Records on 4th March. But until then you can get a free download of single “Suddenly” below.
And check out the new video for his track “Foreign Bodies”, off the Bodily Functions album too.
