"Review of Truth Has No Path"

Kraddy's shadowy, sinewy, jagged electronic sounds bring to mind the deeply textured tracks of many late-'90s IDM artists. It's odd, we've not seen many releases of this ilk in some time... many of the artists who were part of the IDM flurry a few years ago (with the exception of the aforementioned Plaid) have fallen silent as of late. That said, one of the notable differences between 'then' and 'now' is Kraddy's surprisingly basic programmed beats, as opposed to the considerably more complex ones of earlier artists. If you've a been seeking a lengthy late night listenin' album filled with prickly shards jutting out of thick droning swells, you're ready to roll! - Aquarius

"Review of Wiggiddi"

The world knows that San Francisco likes it weird, and few of the city's dance music scenes represent that better than breaks, which has been invaded by a wave of dark, alien beats. One example is Kraddy's "Wiggiddi" on MutiMusic. It's a Fuel-esque track laden with new school bass that glitch fans will love. On the flip, Botchit & Scarper's Atomic Hooligan rework the track with a dancefloor oriented progressive feel. Stay tuned for another Muti release by Kraddy early next year. - XLR8R

"Review of Godzilla"

Kraddy slings some serious cybernetic breaks with crazy drum editing and intricate sampling. The detailed programming on this track will surely rock the fans of Tipper, Si Begg and Uberzone. Soteg unleashes a pulsating electro breaks track with clever programming like the original and puts a twist as if you just walked into a lab of scientific beat junkies.

"Review of Godzilla"

Kraddy drops some seriously cyber-electrofied beats here that fans of Tipper and Si Begg will be feeling. The flip also contains a cool re-working by SOTEG (aka Son Of The Electric Ghost), which is a little more movin and dancy but still in the same electro-breaks realm. Both are cool and worth checkin. - URB Magazine

"Review of Godzilla"

Brooklyn's Blunted Funk Recordings have decided to delve into the twisted side of electro breakbeat electronica. Kraddy's Godzilla spits
warped-sonic-sorcery while SOTEG drops cheeky vocal loops into the original putting a smile on the face of noodling. Excellent electro breakbeat. - Mofo Magazine - UK

Known for his intuitive ability to carve beats out of the bits, Kraddy (Matthew Kratz) has made a name for himself internationally as a producer and a DJ. His releases on Muti Music, Bless Records, Blunted Funk, Ghost Dog Recordings and his own label, Refiner Records have set him apart as a producer with a truly extra-ordinary sound.

Kraddy’s unique tweak has taken him from his home in San Francisco to LA, NY, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, San Diego, Maui and even earned him the headlining slot at Trigger in Birmingham UK. He has also been featured on,, and as well as being reviewed by XLR8R, URB, BPM, Undercover Magazine and Mofo.

Kraddy’s music implicates cybernetic breaks with asymmetrical dub delays and hip hop grooves with dark ethereal melodies. At times his music is technical and frenetic and calls to mind images of genetically mutated earthworms, poping and locking deep underground to sub atomic frequencies, causing minute shifts in the structure and alignment of the tectonic plates, that over millennia will alter the magnetic core of the planet and thus change its frequency field steering its evolution towards greater harmony and a more peaceful form.

Other times he weaves together webs of moody etheresque clouds akin to the sounds of alternate life forces manipulating hydrogen and carbon molecules into biomechanical nanobots that imperceptibly permeate the neuronets of sleeping subjects from light years away in a methodical attempt to preserve and record the neural, synaptic and chemical makeup of all matter.
