Matrixxman is Charles Duff, Bay Area-based producer of rattling techno and electro. Duff's production credits are vast: not only has he released 12 singles since 2013 under the Matrixxman alias (via labels like Unknown to the Unknown, Dekmantel, and Icee Hot), he's also put out a stack of stuff as one half of 5kinandbone5 (who produced for rappers like Le1f and YG).
Matrixxman's debut album 'Homesick' lands on Ghostly next month, its press release highlighting Duff's obsessions with futurism, science fiction, conspiracy theory, AI, and neuroscience. But if you're worried that this might all be a bit of conceptual malarkey from a guy who's read too much William Gibson, you just need to listen to the music: new track HMU (Hit Me Up) features friend and regular collaborator Vin Sol (who is also the co-owner of the Soo Wavey label alongside Duff) and is a whirring, blooping piece of machine tech that just does the business, plain and simple.
