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.
