Matrixxman "A Witness"
Known for his work as one half of 5kinAndBone5, Matrixxman has recently struck out on his own, and today can be found producing beats for Mykki Blanco and collaborating with dancefloor luminaries such as DJ Haus. The San Francisco DJ/producer has also a new EP on the way, entitled The XX Files, which is said to represent perhaps his most straightforward house/techno release to date. This is not to say it's boring, as EP track "A Witness" attests to, combining a slick garage sheen with elastic basslines and plenty of nods to vintage Detroit techno atmospheres. The XX Files will be released on July 23 via Brooklyn label Fifth Wall, but before then, a preview of Matrixxman's upcoming EP can be streamed after the jump.
