LE MATOS is a Canadian trio from Montreal. Their music is a powerful dancemachine, mix of pop melodies and melancholic new wave, inspired by movie soundtrack composers such as Vangelis or Carpenter and electronic artists like Kraftwerk, Daft Punk or Giorgio Moroder. Their live sets are always a strong experience for the audience. They play real live electronic music, using lots of different machines as mythic Moog or DX7 synthesizers. They have shared the stage with Boys Noize, Shadow Dancer, DIM, Adam Freeland, Evil 9....
They also remixed Coeur De Pirate (released on Barclay in France), Delphic (Kitsuné), We Have Band and many more...
Coming from all 3 corners of Quebec, Jean-Nicolas, Jean-Phillipe and Maxime have quickly established themselves as the new ambassadors of local electro. In just over a year they have gone from completely unknown to playing in front of thousands of people, whether it was at Igloofest or more recently at the I Love NEON 10 year anniversary.
- Le Matos is slang for "The Equipment" in french.
- All members of the group emanate from the hardcore scene and could be described as straight edge (no alcohol, no drugs).
- Their first and only official release is 88mph on Saboteur Records.
