Los Angeles’ preeminent psychedelic beatsmith is all set to follow up last month’s excellent International EP with a new full-length, Outmind (artwork above), slated for release April 19 on FlyLo’s Brainfeeder imprint. “Like You Mean It” is the latest audio taste from the forthcoming LP and one that finds the Leaving Records head exploring the familiar territories of heavily side-chained samples and fuzzy soundscapes…not that we’re complaining. Out of the wave of murky beat-makers that have been popping up left and right, Matthewdavid clearly belongs at the top of the pack due to his undeniable knack for weaving together disparate textures with seamless detail, crafting tracks that thump you in the chest as much as they toss around your brain. Mr. David has also been tapped for this month’s Altered Zones mix, which we’ve made available for stream/download after the jump. (via Pitchfork)
