Matrixxman & Kohra
27 April 2019
Auro Kitchen & Bar
Amid a serious dearth of US techno producers in recent years, Charles Duff, also known as Matrixxman, has been busy soundtracking the technological singularity that unfolds before us. His sound tends to be cold and mechanised yet somehow retains an element of warmth, perhaps even soul, if you will. A lone spark of instantiated humanity that refuses to be extinguished by the din of automata marching toward us.
Kohra (Urdu - fog or mist) creates a spatial, mystical and ethereal dance music experience. Versatile, hypnotic and forward-thinking he propels forward his sound via Qilla Records, which he set up in 2009 to promote upcoming, diverse and cutting-edge dance music from India and across the world.
