teleportation ~ glances { Matthewdavid interview }

Earthly Matters
featured episode

The so-called LA beat scene, a cache of twisted boom-bap embedded in the cities tradition of hazy psychedelia and g-funk strutting. The now complete All City L.A. Series highlights the cities producers who seem to represent this buzz, one of the standout entries from these well crafted splits was Matthewdavid. His production techniques privilege sonic degradation, taking samples from worn tapes and warped records, focusing on what many would consider to be perhaps trivial and mundane aspects of life. Using intricate sounds of our everyday surroundings through the use of sound collages and field recordings tapping into a lush, sonic wooziness that ushers him out of any reductive scene constrictions.

His label Leaving Records is inventive, it has Ras G at his most abstruse and the baffling Rainwater Tea by Dem Hunger, its a strange and carefully crafted label that is too curious to skip on - much like every Matthewdavid recording to date.

teleportation ~ glances { matthewdavid interview }

It's the final broadcast of 2010 / 11.

````````````````````````````````

Before I decide to hop through one portal and out through another into unfamiliar realms for the duration of the summer, I'm really excited to leave us with an interview from the sui generis of beatmakers to emerge from Los Angeles. The wonderfully enigmatic, Leaving Record's founder, Matthewdavid whose "Outmind" LP - which is released on Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label - is one of 2011's most beautifully crafted records released this year.

ººººººººººººººººººººººº ººººººººººººººººººººººº

As the tide recedes, emerging from the uncomfortably ferocious dense clutches of the oceans stormy waves whilst resting softly, submerged under a thick blanket of microscopic entities within a vast and fragile underwater empire is the gentle hibernation of Outmind.

````````````````````````````````

Once ready to flourish into the ether it gently thrives along the naturally winding movement of the ocean floor interlacing it’s tender fins in between water droplet bubbles, graceful currents, and the passing inhabitants of the barriers peculiar array of species. Outmind represents the gaze of the sun’s luminous reflections upon the inhabitats scales, shimmering and tinkering softly from one organism to the other. Outmind represents the collective memories of coral families upon the shores of land. Outmind represents the tangible sense of touch from one individual to another. Outmind is scattered amongst us. Outmind is belief.

````````````````````````````````

Matthewdavid is the embodiment of diversity, a kind of optimistic energy that shines through from his experiences with Dublab, Brainfeeder, Poo-Bah Records, Low End Theory, and other active hives of creativity within the Los Angeles vicinity. The full spectrum of his work from the awe-inspiring lo-fi, dispersion on the cassette tape releases which are filled with a deep, reverberating sound on his Leaving Records imprint to the visually contented direction of the images that emanate upon each recording gives the music an additional layer of heightened self-awareness.

````````````````````````````````

His approach to creating and distributing music conveys a warm, pleasurable sensation which radiates through his precise attention to detail by focusing on what many would consider to be perhaps trivial and mundane aspects of life by focusing on the intricate sounds of our everyday surroundings through the use of sound collages and field recordings and nourishing it’s fullest potential and tapping into a lush, sonic wooziness of our deepest, most transcendental desires.
