Podcast 171: Matthewdavid
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
The ranks of LA's beat scene have swelled exponentially in the past year, but even amongst the sea of FlyLo knockoffs, a small cadre of truly innovative producers continues to stand out. One of those producers is Matthewdavid, an accomplished beatmaker and sound collage artist who also happens to run the inventive Leaving Records label. Both David and the Leaving imprint are known for their love of unusual releases, whether it be limited-run cassettes with custom-made artwork or hand-painted floppy disks. So when we invited Matthewdavid to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series, it comes as little surprise that he elected to do something special. His All the Love I Feel for You mix is quite unlike any other podcast we've ever hosted, as David has combined abstract gems with field recordings, discarded cassettes, distorted vintage R&B instrumentals, and lots and lots of tape delay. When a mix includes song descriptions along the lines of "Mexican tape from the '80s I ended up throwing away," it's clearly not the average DJ offering.
