Herbert stood out back in the early-ish days of UK deep house. People often don’t immediately bow down to his finely tuned ear, but anyone who likes their tracks leftfield has to admit he is a “one off” producer and to be honest at the time “parts” came out in 95 I was at least ready for his minimal sounds. And don’t let ‘minimal’ mislead, his dance floor gonads remained huge and teetering until well into the late 90’s. The guy has amazing taste in wax too, and on the occasion I heard him spanking twelves in Leeds, he had the floor in the palms of his hands and was telepathically judging every track choice based on what the floor really really wanted! So put some socks in it if you can’t say anything worth while, there’s enough rubbish on this site as it is without having to skim all the negative opinions of obviously well respected artists...

amen!

Herbert is one of the greatest producers of our time...maybe you dont understand his music :-)
"Take me Back" is an timeless Minimal Kickhouse-Bomb that sounds after 20 years better than more of the stuff from today.

One of the most overrated producers of all time. I was just today listening to a great mix and then suddenly it got destroyed by a laboured track which only managed to repeat a vocal sample "take me back take me back". Checking the track list, I found at no surprise that it was a Herbert track. Not the first time, and I am afraid it is not the last. Why do anybody bother putting his stuff in a mix?

Extensive catalogue of very little I would buy. Not much I'm very impressed with and think, "I MUST have that in my collection." Can't believe the amount of copies for sale and the outrageous prices for something with 18 - 20 copies on the market. Means... not in demand.

What i can say, is just a master!
Taste, quality, perfect sound made Herbert a perfect artist, each album is different from the others but all the releases have something similar that we can find only in her productions and also in her alias..and after years i still believe that Herbert is the most eclettic and productive producer.
I hope only that he continue with her work.
Thanks for your music Mr. Best Boy Electric, Doctor Rockit, Mr. Vertigo, Mumblin' Jim, The Music Man, Radio Boy, Slojak, Wishmountain.

A true electronic 'artist' - Matthew Herbert releases or remixes always have to be checked out... even if one doesn't 'get it' initially (I've done this a few times) his pieces of work nearly always do the do in the end.

He's responsible for adding 'swing' and an element of fun back some po-faced House tracks and is someone I'd recommend you to see live. I saw him supported by Bugge Wesseltoft at the Barbican and at Sonar a few times... two completely differing types of venues but still you know that the performance will be just that, and that's what I find lacking lately in House music.

Maybe I'm just getting old, but I really do recommend people to check Herbert's body of work out if you're into proper house / techno or failing that just good music (with a bit of swing and humour).

Respect! Mr. Herbert has created a new form of House Music which really kicks me the whole day. His release "Around The House" with Dani Siciliano on Phonography is an excellent work to introduce you into his style.
