About Matmos

One of left-field electronic music's most imaginative and enduring acts, Matmos combine a passion for sampling, concepts worthy of academia, and a keen wit. Drew Daniel and M.C. Schmidt transformed sources like freshly cut hair, the amplified neural activity of crayfish, and washing machines into music that nodded to drum'n'bass and glitch as well as American folk and medieval music. Matmos grounded their clever sonics with culturally relevant themes, with 2001's A Chance to Cut Is a Chance to Cure exploring the intersection of vanity and technology with samples of plastic surgeries; 2005's The Rose Has Teeth in the Mouth of a Beast presenting musical sketches of influential LGBTQ figures; and 2019's Plastic Anniversary depicting climate change playfully and ominously. On 2022's Regards / Ukłony dla Bogusław Schaeffer, Matmos' homage to the experimental Polish polymath showcased their ability to revere history while reinventing it in their unmistakable fashion.
