    The XX Files EP is the latest from @matrixxman, co-owner of the Soo Wavey imprint and formerly known for his work with 5kinAndBone5. Culling influences from the breadth of late 80s/early 90s dance music with particular nods to classic Detroit techno and WBMX-era Chicago house, the EP is a session of analog calisthenics, at times lush and melodic, as in “Credentials” and “A Witness,” and at times tough and unforgiving, as in “Protocol” and the remixes of “Case Closed” and “Credentials.”

    Remixes come courtesy of London’s Ill Life, who issues a quirky but pumping warehouse oddity in his interpretation of “Case Closed,” and Irish producer Myler, who lays down a rugged, syncopated techno wheeler in his almost unrecognizable rendering of “Credentials.”

    Support from TEED, Tommy Four Seven, Tiefschwarz, Sinden, Sei A, Trevino, Forward Strategy Group, Breach, and more.
