1) Mate is Alberto Matesanz, he comes from Madrid, Spain and it’s part of the duo Plastic d’amour. In 2005, he released with siesta records the album ‘sol de medianoche’ “…the perfect record to enjoy the afterglow of pop after sunset. Mr Matesanz -somewhere between Benjamin Biolay and Gilbert O’sullivan- has well-boned songwriting skills, a sharp eye for lyric detail and an instantly recognizable vocal style. His music conveys whimsy and sentiment, it is not ‘hip’ sounding à la lo-fi or country at all. He has a feel for strong melodies in a quirky understated way.
The songs subsequently rely on precise arrangements, solid melodies and smart execution, neat acoustics and romantic pop roads in elastic beds of guitars. Midnight sun pop.


2) Mate is an artist from Szeged, Hungary. About me: I am a student in Hungary. I made “music” when i was very young in Impulse Tracker 2.14, but finished it for about 10 years, and in December 2005 I started to deal with music severely. My name: It’s not from the English word “mate”, it’s from my Hungarian forename Máté, without accents.

3) Mate is a band from Zielona Góra, Poland.
