King of Arabs "We Are Bored in the City (Matrixxman Remix)"
After establishing his solo career throughout 2013, San Francisco DJ/producer Matrixxman is kicking off 2014 with a new remix of King of Arabs' "We Are Bored in the City," a tune featured on the third volume of the Nasty Rips and Shifting Peaks compilation (out on February 3). The production is carried by a shy 4/4 beat, as the rhythm weaves from a minimalist house groove, takes an extended breath, and continues its upward trajectory into an upbeat, dream-like atmosphere. Matrixxman’s remix portrays his ability to be whimsical yet refined, a nice juxtaposition to his recent The XX Files EP, which focused heavily on straightforward house and techno.
