Electronic music fans are probably familiar with San Francisco house producer Matrixxman, who's visited NYC over the past few years for shows with Teengirl Fantasy, George FitzGerald, Nosaj Thing and more. Last month, he finally put out his debut album Homesick on Ghostly. FACT liked it and wrote:

Musically, Homesick follows the thrust of Matrixxman's recent output: Detroit techno with touches of electro and industrial, along with ambient pieces that are better suited to an LP than an EP. "It's a totally different approach," he explains via Skype. "With singles and EPs, you're definitely concerned with capturing attention briefly, with more of a shock and awe approach. With the album, you get to delve into more emotional territory."

That territory is exemplified by 'Annika's Theme', a very human moment that comes towards the end of the album; Duff tried to and succeeds at capturing a bittersweet sentiment, the dichotomy of human and machine.

Matrixxman will support the album on tour, including a return to NYC on September 10 at Verboten with Pleasurekraft and Jaceo. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
