Mat/Matix | Freakin' (With You) | Music Video
Los Angeles native Mat/Matix has soaked up, breathed, internalized and reimagined the west coast sound…championing G- Funk Basslines, Wave-y Jazz & Hip Hop Feels, Boogie-Funk Street Sounds, Underground House parties and RnB jeep-beats to create his own sound to perfectly accompany the beach-lined West Coast of California with his upcoming 'On Lock' LP on Hobo Camp Records. Freakin’ (With You), the most radio-friendly of the bunch introduces California-based singer Zyah Belle to the LP, and delivers the most anthemic chilled-groove RnB jam.
