Impressed by Barack Obama’s speech in front of more than 200,000 people in Berlin, Germany on July 24th 2008, German producer Matt Flores was inspired to create a new Deep House track.

Using warm and driving beats, moving percussion and bass line, syncopated synth stabs and spheric pads, the arrangement keeps building until it climaxes into a break featuring an excerpt of before mentioned speech.

Personal message from Lars Behrenroth:
After I played ‘Now Is The Time’ on Deeper Shades of House show #260, I received a great amount of messages and emails and the tracks impact made me realize that it needs to be released and heard by many people before the upcoming US presidential election on November 4th 2008.

Matt Flores (Düsseldorf / Germany) has published countless works of art during the past few years and released on labels like Compost Black, Combination, Farside and others.
The flow of his music is being fed by the club, being a social place and a room for the most different kinds of music to which one is able to move. Matt is a scientist, always aware of his past and the history of music, but never wanting to be retro. Being is a dancer himself, he knows how to build the most fresh danceable beats in a very unique manner.
Matt Flores' records are a staple in the bags of Àme, Manuel Tur & D-Play, Laurent Garnier, Westpark Unit just to name a few.
