Founding member & producer/emcee for group The X Presidents & hip-hop trio Conscience, Matt is currently working on his debut self-produced solo album, “The Rimbaud Protocol”, with features from Fatlip & Slimkid3 (formerly of The Pharcyde). The albums’ sound is influenced by jazz, electronic, hip-hop, funk & his hybrid live set combines bass-heavy beats with live instrumentation and emceeing.

Beatroute Magazine spoke highly of his work with The X Presidents’ on their latest project “Hands Up”:

“The X Presidents’ self-produced second album is a largely introspective affair, with tracks ranging in tone from melancholic, guitar-driven reflections like What I Should Have Said” and Get Me Through” to the more feel-good Carefree” and Tumblin’.” Jazz, blues, and rock influences underscore the album, resulting in a cohesive, relevant release from a local hip-hop crew worth keeping an eye out for”

Matt has extensively toured & performed in 13 countries with artists such as KRS-One, Rakim, Fatlip & Slimkid3 (of The Pharcyde), Kool Keith, Raekwon (Wu-Tang), Slum Village, Apathy & Celph Titled. Matt has also worked on studio singles/videos with KRS-One, Fatlip, J-Sw!ft & Kool Keith. In 2017 he performed at the Canada Day 150th at Canada Place as well as Rifflandia Festival - 10th Anniversary, at the famous Phillips Backyard Stage.  In August 2018 he will be performing at the Honda Celebration of Lights on Second Beach in Vancouver.

Matt became a FACTOR juror in 2018. Since founding the independent label Standstill Music in 2008, he has published 5 self-produced albums between both groups & has booked/managed international tours for artists such as Slum Village & members of The Pharcyde.
