MATRIX & FUTUREBOUND RETURN WITH NEW SINGLE

M&FLeading Drum and Bass duo Matrix & Futurebound are about to follow up the success of “Control” with another smash single – “Don’t Look Back”.

The track features the hot new vocal talents of British singer/songwriter and star-in-the-making, Tanya Lacey. Prior to appearing on “Don’t Look Back”, Tanya’s finest moments have been writing and featuring on Loick Essien’s “How We Roll” and writing “T.H.E” by will.i.am ft Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez.

BBC 1 Xtra’s head of new tunes MistaJam gave “Don’t Look Back” its debut play on his show last night. Jam’s verdict? “…the best Matrix & Futurebound record so far” AND “So big it’s a monster” AND “If that’s not a hit I’ll eat my hat – with no seasoning.” In fact he liked it so much that he played it twice.

Don’t just take his word for it….listen to the play on our Soundcloud and see what you think.

“Don’t Look Back” is due for release on July 6th.
