Human Life

Represented in South America.

Human Life, a.k.a. Matthew Wasley wants you to listen to his music before you try to label it. “My goal as a producer and DJ is to challenge the idea that an artist has to stick to a narrow genre of music without evolving. Growing up, my favorite artists were the ones that constantly pushed themselves to do something new.” Following this path is the mission of Human Life’s music. Currently drawing inspiration from Underground House, Techno, leftfield Disco & vintage Pop, Human Life connects these influences via strong melodies paired with production that mixes modern electronic sources alongside live instruments & vocals.

Originally from Boston, Matthew now lives in Los Angeles surrounded by the city’s underground warehouse parties and year round sunshine. It was in this environment that the project began to take shape. Human Life’s breakout Smash “In It Together” (released on Defected Records) set the tone with a remix from none other than the late Godfather of house music, Frankie Knuckles, which resulted in a No.1 on Traxsource for 4 weeks and praise from BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong who said “they don’t make ‘em like this anymore” live on air.

Several successful releases followed including collaborations with then unknown singer Anabel Englund. Their first work being the track “Falling” which was released with the Hot Creations family in 2013. The pair returned in 2014 with “El Diablo” which was a major step forward for both artists with lyrics influenced by Jim Morrison, harmonies reminiscent of The Beach Boys, and deep, disco influenced production with an early 90’s touch. “El Diablo” saw an all star remix package on Germany’s Exploited Records including standout mixes from Adana Twins, Joyce Muniz, Mia Dora & more. The result was both club support from DJs like Tensnake, Sasha & Dubfire and radio support from several BBC Radio 1 DJs and the likes of KCRW’s Jason Bentley who called it one of his “favorite songs of the year.”

Complimenting Human Life’s studio output, signature live & DJ sets define a style that connects the projects varying influences while still keeping an ear to the dancefloor. The result has been requests to play standout gigs at some of the world’s best venues including Verboten in NYC, XOYO in London, Razzmatazz in Barcelona and even the world famous Coachella Music Festival.

Moving forward we can expect much more to come. Recent collaborations with Santé & Adana Twins hint the direction of upcoming material on the way with labels such as Kerri Chandler’s MadTech
