The concept behind this performance is nothing short of brilliant. Watching Mathieu passionately doing what he loves, encircled by friends and family who support his music, in an intimate yet sophisticated venue immediately set the perfect tone. It’s akin to being invited to a warm and welcoming family dinner, creating a welcoming and warm atmosphere that’s quite crucial, especially for someone like me who wasn’t familiar with the artist before.

Let’s dive into the music. Mathieu seamlessly blends orchestral elements with genres ranging from House and Future House to Midtempo, and even a touch of pop. Vocal-driven tracks intertwine with minimalist instrumentals in an eclectic selection that maintains Mathieu’s distinct sense of calm and elegant minimalism. Yet, it also spans at least five different directions, offering a 360-degree range of tracks to suit various tastes. The way the set is curated provides surprising moments, transitioning from soothing tunes to energetic twists. And yes, this is a live, non pre-recorded exhibition, showcasing Mathieu’s genuine enjoyment behind the decks.

Picking favorites from this set is a challenge, but I can certainly offer a few mini-reviews here about the songs that entertained me the most. I strongly recommend listening to the entire “Mathieu Moës Live and Surrounded by Friends at Melusina, Luxembourg, 2023” to fully appreciate the synergy between the tracks.

Trois aventuriers

With a Deorro-like lead, this track unfolds like an adventure, guiding listeners through a rollercoaster of emotions. The pizzicato vibe adds a distinctive touch, showcasing Mathieu Moës’ talent in telling a story through carefully selected elements. It’s an impressive release that leaves a lasting impact.


Boasting over 100,000+ streams, “Lux-Ville” is undoubtedly a hit from Mathieu. The blend of elegant synths with captivating vocals is simply jaw-dropping. This track encapsulates the epitome of his style’s sophistication, with a solid sound design pairing up with the now-familiar cinematic vibes… And a guitar!


“Bliss” exudes a joyful vibe that harmonizes well with the epic undertone of this part of the set. The addition of energetic percussions enhances the dynamism of the track. It’s slightly experimental in tone, taking the atmosphere into a darker, more melancholic realm, and I appreciate the audacity in changing the mood right when I was settling it for a calmer section.
