Nubian Metropolis

It’s not hard to understand why US producer Matrixxman has found a home on Dekmantel. With the exception of the noisy analogue house of ‘Cybernetic Implant’ — more of a nod to the US Midwest techno sound — ‘Nubian Metropolis’ is steeped in the traditions of Dutch electronic music. ‘Sermons’ fuses tumbling drums and Legowelt-style bass and chord trippiness, while 'System Blackout' is a reduced, Bunker-style acid workout. Best of all though is "Siamese Twins', whose eerie synths and understated drum-fills sound like a product of the West Coast.
