Over the last few years, electronic Italian duo, Mathame, have really been able to establish themselves of one of undergrounds’ most promising acts. Released in March via ‘B1 Recordings/Ministry of Sound’, the single, ‘Never Give Up’, continues to gain support, already fostered from industry leaders including BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong who earlier rewarded from Tale Of Us, ‘Afterlife’, ‘For Every Forever’, and their first, ‘Essential New Tune’.
“Musically, ‘Never Give Up’ has many influences, from techno to cinematic soundtracks and sound design. We try to synthesise all our influences into one track that can be like a manifesto of our sound, dynamic, wider, handcrafted, dreaming, with a simple and strong message. A message to the earth, like a flag that calls everyone to not ever give up. The track arrives at the time of a global crisis where it feels like everything is out of our hands and we have lost control. Now more than ever, the planet earth and humanity need this message, every day and every night.” – Mathame
Beginning in 2013, brothers Amedeo and Matteo Giovanelli have been creeping up as an integral part of the underground music scene – forest releasing on Vaal’s, ‘Bastard’, label in 2015. Following that, Mathame released an EP on Tiefschwarz’ revered, ‘Souvenir’ in 2017. Their constant activity arguably added to their peak in a release for Tale Of Us, ‘Afterlife’ label in 2018 – which featured tracks, ‘Nothing Around Us’ and ‘Fade Into You’.
This duo had their breakthrough in 2019, with an international touring schedule going across Stockholm, Abu Dhabi, Milan, Istanbul and many more cities. The tour was highlighted by a performance for French Video Platform, Cercle, filmed at the summit of Mexico City’s Reforma 180 Heliport. The Cercle stream currently has over 2 million streams and Mathame has worked with them as well as close friends for ‘Tale Of Us’. Over the last two years, Mathame has become residents for their ‘Afterlife’ event series, performing at showcases from Mexico to Ibiza.
Closing the gap from underground to mainstream, Mathame has continued to showcase their prowess as producers – remixing for the Grammy-nominated live electronic act RÜFÜS DU SOL, as well as providing an anthemic rework of MEDUZA’s, ‘Lose Control’.
Continuing their unstoppable momentum across the new decade, Mathame recently launched their new cinematic project across all platforms, PHOENIX.

Using the latest 3D real-time technologies, PHOENIX has hundreds of different settings where DJ’s and musicians can perform in outlandish scenarios and backgrounds. The groundbreaking project took two months to develop and, in future, will also be a web community akin to the computer game and virtual universe, ‘Second Life’, where users can meet with their own avatar.
