The Rip-Off Artist

Real Name:
Matt Haines
Profile:
From Los Angeles, California where he runs his label Inflatabl Labl, Matt Haines (aka Mateo Hernandez, aka the Rip-Off Artist) has lived many a life: illegal immigrant, in-demand Nashville country recording session player, political and social activist, offshore oil-rig driller, archeologist, and former drum'n'bass producer. This would be fine and would appear to be the resumé of a man who's lived quite a life, if only any of these things were actually true.

MAtt Haines....legend, up there with the best electronic rhythm composers from that late nineties era alongside Atom tm, Twerk, Dimbiman, Kit Clayton.
Anybody shine any light onto what happened after 2005? All output seemed to stop.
