Matte Blvck is an electronic group out of San Diego CA. Producing sounds of sinister pleasures, visual arts and mechanical tinged dance music.
The group captures lush dark-synth stylings complemented by gritty industrial anthems while embodying their affinity for underground techno. Alex Gonzales , Bidi Cobra, and Daniel Corrales serve as the three-piece ensemble. Coming from various influences the trio comes together to complement their vast and scattered ideas to now form their own brand of club aesthetic.
The debut album “ I’m Waving, Not Drowning “ is set to release this Fall following their forthcoming singles “ Pure “, and their ageless rendition of “ Stripped “ from standout titans Depeche Mode. The record was mostly written during the global-wide shutdown due to Covid-19 and has spawned an introverted yet relatable sound. An album created in isolation touching on topics such as pain, panic and suffering yet conceiving a light at the end of the tunnel. Hence the title of the album, “ I’m Waving, Not Drowning “.
