Real Name:
Jamie Quinn
Brother of Matt Quinn (aka Optical), and owner of the Metro label.

Matrix a.k.a Jamie Quinn forged an early path into the drum and bass scene with innovative releases on DJ SS's New Identity Recordings before launching his own Metro imprint in 1997. His seminal debut long player, 'Sleepwalk' on Virus showed that there was more to this producer than simply the 12" format and his remixes of tracks like 'Medicine' (Ed Rush & Optical), 'Phone Call' (Klute) and Kirsty Hawkshaw's 'Leafy Lane' have become timeless classics. In recent years he's also climbed to the top of the pop charts as part of the Goldtrix production team with 'Trippin (It's Love)' going on to add the likes of Tony Braxton, Annie Lennox and Robbie Williams to his growing remix credit list.
Along side a hectic worldwide DJ schedule, 2005 saw Matrix team up with Liverpool based producer Futurebound resulting in the massive 'American Beauty Remix'. Played relentlessly by everyone from Andy C to Pete Tong, the track has reached true anthem status and has set the tone for the duo's forthcoming album which is due to be unleashed in March 2007. Combining straight up dance floor devastation with big hooks and soulful futurism, cuts from the album are already on heavy rotation with those DJs lucky enough to have snagged a copy. The first single from the album, 'Universal Truth'/'Skycraper' is set to drop in November and proves why Matrix is one of a small handful of djs and producers to have maintained a position in the premiere league of Drum and Bass for over ten years, and as if further evidence were needed that he is one of the hardest working producers in Drum and Bass, Matrix is also featured on several tracks on Ed Rush & Optical's album, 'Chameleon'.

Matrix is a Don. Everyone needs to pay the bills from time to time. Don't hate the player

How can someone who made something as amazing as Mute produce this control bollox tune in the charts?
What a sellout.

I am completely baffled as to how a man who's capable of producing incredible tracks such as Fluid Motion, Mute, Double Vision and Sedation, can glide down the slope with producing total boring and uninspired predictable commercial crap like American Beauty (which theme is in itself beautiful!)...
This, together with the same downhill trend for J. Majik, markes the death of true drum'n'bass to me...
I hope the scene will get their acts together and start going deep again, instead of just copying each other over and over!

Skillful producer, always deep and with tension in his tracks.
