In the Cartesian view of identity, the body is a container for our mind, personality and ultimately our soul. But what happens when technology allows us to transcend the limitations of physical reality as we know it? In a post-corporeal life, our bodies may no longer be confined to the rather cumbersome form of a human but instead a vast digital network. Matrixxman happens to be a proponent of this possibility. When he is not preoccupied envisioning the emergence of myriad artificial intelligence entities and endless virtual worlds within worlds, he also enjoys composing music. The essence of which is crafting new interpretations of something straddling the grey area between classic Chicago house and Detroit techno. “Resurgent techno atavism” as he prefers to call it.
In 2013, Matrixxman’s debut EP “The XX Files” received critical acclaim, garnering praise from the likes of The Fader, Pitchfork, XLR8R and Fact Magazine. His relentless rhythm tracks like “Protocol” have been supported and played by a who’s who of dope underground elite including Levon Vincent, Len Faki, Richie Hawtin, Jeff Mills, San Soda, Boddika, Pfirter, etc. Meanwhile on the house side of things, various tunes of his have been rinsed by tastemakers such as Larry Heard, Joey Anderson, DVS1, HNNY, Huerco S and Seth Troxler, to name a few. Together with comrade Vin Sol, he runs the label Soo Wavey based out of San Francisco
