His debut album, Homesick, displays a newfound and dogged single-mindedness. It is so intently focused upon its aesthetic-dark, ominous, sensually mechanical, all hot breath and brushed stainless steel-that it feels, in retrospect, like everything until now has been leading up to this. Homesick is not quite a concept album, but there's a ghost of a narrative visible in the record's bookending tracks. First, there's "Necronomicon", which opens the LP with nine-and-a-half minutes of greyscale throb, like Basic Channel rendered ultra-minimal and unusually menacing.

There’s no shortage of potential DJ weaponry on Homesick, but what makes the album truly impressive are the cuts where Matrixxman gets out of his presumed comfort zone and steps away from the club.
