Matrixxman is the alter-ego of Charles McCloud Duff. Although he’s known primarily for his work in the techno realm as of late, his musical range extends well beyond the confines of dance music.
Initially he honed his skills producing extensively for some of the west coast’s most notorious figures in gangster rap; YG and Ty$. After growing bored of the routine he began collaborating with queer rappers helping establish artists Le1f and Mykki Blanco with some of their biggest hits to date. In pursuit of what he refers to as “some cold ass futuristic shit,” his subsequent adventures led him down an unforeseen path of experimentation touching on 2 step garage, post-dubstep, grime, and other facets of UK Bass music. Several years later he ultimately settled into his groove with something straddling the divide between Chicago House and Detroit Techno. Although truth be told, it was nothing new to him. Word of his diverse production chops spread within the industry culminating in his recent work with Depeche Mode on their album “Spirit”. It’s not often that an artist can cover such range without faltering but then again Matrixxman has always eschewed conformity. The only thing you can definitively conclude about him is that you never know what the fuck he’s going to do next.
