Manchester based producer Frameworks (Matthew Brewer) returns with his third studio album ‘Imagine Gold’ on LOCI Records. Sighting the album as a reflection of his taste rather than his skill, this album delivers a diversely influenced and executed body of work that reflects growth and maturity. Understated yet intricate, IG narrates and explores the process of creativity; “This album was about simplicity, about creating something I would listen to, ignoring the external validation I had often sought in the past to create something introspective and personal” explains Matthew. IG offers beauty and sophistication; it proudly states it’s a different record from its predecessors and it walks into the limelight offering no apologies. Analogue synths and tape saturated drums show Matthew working with different palettes and expanding on past offerings.
Since Tides in 2015 Frameworks has been building a steady momentum playing the North American festival circuit, performing at Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightning in a Bottle, Camp Bisco, Global Eclipse Gathering, and the 20th anniversary of Shambhala. The most recent incarnation ‘Frameworks live’ takes audiences to a familiar place, giving the audience a truer representation of Matthews background and creative process.
