Daniel Matz likes to com­bine orna­men­tal melodies with hump­ing bass, float­ing beats and painstak­ing chordal work, cre­at­ing a sound that is both thrilling and dis­turb­ing. It’s a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed music, that grows from a core of a seem­ingly unend­ing play­ful­ness and excitement.


Born in 1979 in Schw­erin, Ger­many, Phlex began mak­ing music around 1995 on Amiga 500 and released sev­eral tapes with exper­i­men­tal hard dance music. After 10 years of devel­op­ment and a degree in Sound design he founded Rock Paper Scis­sor, a Berlin party series which took place from 2006 till 2008, bring­ing his favorite artists to big stages and cin­e­mas around Berlin .


Aside from releases under his main moniker, Phlex has released sev­eral remixes and tracks under his two other names “Ziggy” and “Tex n Terok”, mak­ing remixes and works for artists like Shitkat­a­pult, Peter Fox, Agnes Obel, North­ern Lights and Bela B. Reg­u­larly he is enlisted as a pro­ducer and sound designer in his own right.


his debut album was released on the 15th of July 2012 at Schematic Records which hosts artists like Richard Devine, Scott Her­ren (Prefuse73, Savath & Savalas), Otto Von Schirach, Push But­ton Objects, and col­lab­o­rate with the likes of Mat­mos, Autechre, Jamie Lidell, Matthew Her­bert, and Glen Velez amongst many notable others.
