MATT HAINES (born MATEO HERNANDEZ) moved from his hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico, to the border town of Tijuana when he was twelve years old. During his teenage years, he and his friends regularly snuck across the border into the United States for fun, back when it was easy for a small bunch of teenagers. One of their favorite routes was the set of one-way pedestrian bridges from San Ysidro (US) to Tijuana. Pedestrians crossing from the US to Mexico traveled in one direction on one bridge, and return traffic used the other. However, it was possible to climb among the support struts underneath the southbound bridge, and sneak into the US undetected.  Matt has since moved to the United States, changed his name, and has had a successful recording career for the past seven years. But the RIP OFF ARTIST still remembers fondly the times he crossed the border, going north on the southbound bridge to sneak “in through the out door.” This release on Tigerbeat6 is about that period of his life. On In Through The Out Door, he has created a playful world of found voices, peppy rhythms and smart-ass musical references. The music harkens back to his The Kids Are Alright album from 2000, with glitchy electro-fried beats and hummable pop aspects rarely found in modern electronica, which is what makes Tigerbeat6 a perfect home for it.  As the Rip Off Artist, Haines done three full-lengths, six 12-inch EPs, and numerous compilation tracks for labels such as Hot Air, Mille Plateaux, Tigersushi, Massive Advance, City of Angels, Sub Rosa (a glitch house release on a new Mo’Wax / XL sublabel is forthcoming). He’s also had previous drum’n’bass and electro releases on labels like BottomHeavy / Moonshine, and Spinyl; compilation appearances on legendary Miami bass label Pandisc and old school electronica labels Instinct, Moonshine, and Streetbeat (mixed by people like AK1200 an DJ Dan). He’s done remixes for acts like Crystal Method, DeeJay Punk Roc, John Tehada even lounge legends Dean Martin and Julie Sway.  • Upcoming one-off live shows everywhere from San Francisco to Barcelona • Tuneful IDM that mixes the hi-fi processing of Richard Devine with the timeless humor and playfulness of Stock, Hausen and Walkman
