The Italian techno duo Mathame consists of brothers Amadeo and Matteo Giovanelli. They learned all about music from their parents, who ran a pirate radio “Taxi” during the ‘80s. Thanks to the radio’s rich music archive and their ability to play instruments such as piano and violin, they became the kings of the dance floor.
Their dark, dynamic and deep techno is directly inspired by life on Mount Etna, which they say is “like living on Mars.” They quickly received support from the Afterlife label and fellow DJs Tale of Us. Since 2016, they have performed on big stages in Ibiza, Los Angeles, India, Prague, as well as the Parc Del Forum and the Amsterdam Dance Event.
Before the start of the pandemic, they released the track “Never Give Up”, which brought them a new wave of attention and the title of Essential New Tune on BBC Radio 1.
