Chicago producer and engineer Matt Audio Dope is very well established in the Chicago music scene and has built up an amazing track record of artists from the city. After putting in so much work behind the boards, Matt takes on the executive producer role and decided to put together his own star-studded cast of artists for his own body of work. Handing all the producing, mixing, and mastering, Matt Audio Dope is dropping off his brand new EP titled Gifts From…
Born in the Northwest Suburbs, Matt started producing music of his own just over ten years ago. After obtaining his Audi Arts degree just a few years ago, he began working at Classick Studios, a legendary recording studio here in Chicago with artists such as SZA, Chance the Rapper, and Smino all having been recorded here in the past.
In celebration of Filipino American Heritage Month this October, Matt recruited tons of Filipino artists in Chicago to lay down tracks for the EP. The amazingly talented King Marie kicks the album off right with an old-school Chicago house track with “Free.99”. She also has a song featured on the tape titled “Out Of Love” which is the first song she has ever sung using her language from her hometown in the Philippines. Other artists on the tape include Suburban Kid McFly on tracks “Cinderella” and “HEATWAVE”, Xone White, Jovi, and more!
