2004 was definitely Matthew Dekay's year. After getting noticed with tracks like Beautifull Monday and If i could fly he was absolutely everywhere and wether you love him or hate him you certainly couldnt ignore him!
Bad is his first release for 2005 and does it live up to the hype? Bad starts off with a simple kick drum before a bassline similar to Joey Beltram Energy flash comes into the mix. The track then builds up with some harsh stabs and atmospheric pads before the "Dekay" sound starts to materialise with some lush pianos and strings driving the track along. This track has already had the distinction of being featured on Jonathan Lisles new Bedrock cd and Dekay fans will lap this up for sure!
What if on the flipside is what you would call a more typical Dekay track with uplifting stabs and keychanges galore and is quite similar in feel to his previous hit on DK recordings Gods answer.
Overall this is a good release from Matthew Dekay and though it doesnt quite have the impact of Beautifull Monday or If i could fly its still a very good track in its own right.
