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.

After co-producing several beats with J-Sw!ft (Producer of Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde), the 2 decided to join forces under the name “The Break Fast Club”. Matt recently became part of FACTOR jury, helping review grant applications for artists all across Canada. Matt also founded the independent label Standstill Music in 2008; publishing 5 self-produced albums & booking/managing international tours for artists such as Slum Village & members of The Pharcyde.
