Soundtrack to the Future by Nicolas Matar
Soundtrack to the Future by Nicolas Matar

Nicolas Matar has been DJing since the early age of 15, influenced by the record collection of his father—an original member of Studio 54. He honed his innovative style playing at some of the world’s best festivals and clubs, and, along the way, founded two of New York’s most successful venues: Cielo, and the Berlin- inspired Output. He also does programming for the rowdy and wonderful Basement club at the Miami Beach EDITION. Matar has heard it all, and here, he lets us in on the sounds of the future:

When it comes to the future you can look on the bright side or you can look on the dark side: the world could either turn out to be a hipster utopia or we’ll all be wading around in one another’s blood. To take that question on, we could fill books rather than just this publication. When I’m asked this question “What does the future hold?” I typically answer, “The past is history, the future is a mystery.”

The past is history,
the future is a mystery.

    Those who no longer own or care to own music but pay-per-play from the great cloud in the sky containing all the music ever made. You type in your account code and can listen to, or be inserted virtually into the concert/club of your choosing. This will allow you to live and travel light, and requests would be acceptable.

    The other faction will be the bespoke-analogue-high-fidelity-reproduction real experience. A system playing vinyl and tape on high-end hi-fi in custom built listening clubs. Hand made speaker cabinets, esoteric hand build pre-amps and turntables, moving coil cartridges for conissours and playboys and girls alike.
