One of the minds behind the All Day I Dream parties and label alongside partner Lee Burridge, Matthew Dekay is an artist with deep roots in the progressive house scene but whose music always stood a distance apart. He shares the melancholic sensibilities and dancefloor-friendly vibes of the era, but as a musician with both classical training and classical restraint, revisiting his releases from 2001-2005 finds only pleasant surprises. The secret to his successful resurgence is perhaps the same one that kept him from the mega-success of a few early contemporaries, but the value of subdued emotional depth in dance music is very much a sign of the times now, and it is this that has brought him to a stature rivaled by few peers. It’s no surprise then that he caught the attention of the legendary Innervisions crew, whose similarly deep and searching sound has ranged freely from ambient to techno and established them as icons of the current era often mentioned in the same breath as Matthew Dear, Villalobos, and Matthew Herbert. All Day I Dream is a simple concept – beautifully orchestrated, melancholic house music presented astutely in specific settings – but everything is in the details, and it’s details that make their idea stand ahead of the imitators. Anchored by Dave Turk of Keep it Movin’, whose likemindedly deep and searching approach has helped turn heads since he began his career in Staten Island, and resident Fahad Halder, BlkMarket Membership encourages all comers to dream all day and all night for this very special occasion.
