Biography

A“ONE MORE GREAT BAND TO COME OUT OF SOCAL” - NME

“A VERY PROMISING ACT” - MIXMAG

“IF PRINCE & DAVE GAHAN HAD A BABY, IN PARIS, IN THE 90’S, THAT KID MIGHT NOW BE MAKING MUSIC LIKE THIS. IN L.A AT NIGHT.” -GUARDIAN

“This” meaning the work of LA-based Human Life, a.k.a. Matthew Wasley. Citing influences as diverse as The KLF, Depeche Mode, Happy Mondays and the classic Chicago house music label Trax Records, Matthew produces catchy, potent electronic music with engaging vocals and strong song writing.

Human Life’s sound combines the best of the underground and the overground without contriteness or awkwardness - and it’s one that’s already been catching the attention of French legend Alan Braxe, Radio 1’s Jaymo and Andy George, Grum, Aeroplane, Sasha, A-Trak, Crookers and even the late DJ Mehdi, who along with Riton played Human Life tracks on every date of their Carte Blanche tour.

Originally from Boston, Matthew now lives in Los Angeles with the city’s nightlife providing another strand of influence in the project’s sound. The project began in 2009 as a collaboration between Matthew and producers Joshua Collins & Rachael Starr. 2010 and 2011 saw the project play standout gigs in New York’s legendary Webster Hall and Le Bain @ The Standard, L.A.’s number 1 nightspot Avalon, Neon Noise Project at XOYO (London) and Razzmatazz (Barcelona), with showcase spots at the prestigious In The City music conference (set up by Hacienda and Factory Records legend Tony Wilson) and WAD Magazines 10th Birthday (Paris).
