They say you don't need to reinvent the wheel, but Mataio's latest single makes a compelling case for doing so. "Silence" arrives by way of Pantheon Select, and it offers just fresh enough of a take on melodic dubstep that fans of the genre won't turn their noses to it.

To be sure, the space between melodic dubstep and trance has been explored before - but not quite like this. "Silence" starts with arpeggiated plucks that lather up into a fully feels-inducing array of pads at each drop with a serene vocal soaring overhead. In another inventive turn, the song winds down with a guitar melody that transforms its motif into a more organic statement.
