about

'If debut track ‘Friend’ is anything to go by then Model 86 might just be the most eclectic producer in London at this given moment.' – NME


'New EP 'Self Help Dance' recalls early 90s Warp - the woozy, hypnagogic realm of Scottish duo Boards Of Canada or the more blissful sides of LFO.' - Clash

Firmly establishing himself on the electronic music scene is London-based producer MODEL 86, with his debut EP ‘Self Help Dance’, which so far has seen high acclaim from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, as well as support from BBC 6 Music’s Tom Ravenscroft and Huey Morgan.

Enigmas in modern music are no new thing, but MODEL 86, the moniker of Matthew James Wilcock, takes things further than pseudonyms, masks and no shows. His minimalist facebook profile states his gender as neutral, and this refusal to ascribe to cultural definitions translates to his shape-shifting musical style.

Written over the past year, ‘Self Help Dance’ defies genres, taking influences from modern electronica, 90’s hip hop, film scores, unusual samples and sound design in a style that calls to mind the likes of Flying Lotus and Dorian Concept, while retaining a bold originality.
At times soaring and melodic, at others driving and percussive, ‘Self Help Dance’ is an EP of true sonic experimentalism. Whilst tracks such as 'CTRL' create an ethereal atmosphere with ambient chimes and progressive highs, tracks such as 'LA' and 'Friend' combine chaotic beats with melodic tweaks, fizzles and cinematic glitches, described by Crack In The Road as ‘a mesmerizing patchwork of music’.
