Ron Like Hell is launching a new party called EXALT and kicking it off with a head-to-head for the ages: Matrixxman headlines alongside the man himself. The American-born, Berlin based artist has been a consistent presence in the scene over the last decade, exploring a spacious, gritty sound rooted in the classic futurism of Detroit techno and early Plastikman. His repertoire of collaborators is sizable, from early work with gangster rapper YG to productions for none other than Depeche Mode, Matrixxman’s wide open approach perfectly matches Ron’s “music first” policy. Ron Like Hell should need no introduction: the Wrecked co-founder is one of NY’s most distinctive selectors, masterfully curating a trance-inducing psychedelic sound. Recent appearances at Honcho Campout, Sustain-Release and Merge have only elevated his reputation as an unmissable artist.
