Motionen consists of Carlos Matamoros A.K.A. Altrd Being and Matt Salamone A.K.A. Secus, who concentrate on bringing deeper soundscapes to their interpretation of Los Angeles techno creating a unique flow of ambient, acid, and dub techno.
Altrd Being started in the techno scene as Chill-o VJ (Honduras) (Minimo Audio, Modular, Sunjam) doing visuals for some of the biggest parties in Honduras. Seeking for something more he traveled to Los Angeles to pursue a higher education in Video production. Soon after he parted the Honduran techno scene he found his home in the underground techno scene here in LA. He has collected a variety of drum machines and synthesizers. After sequencing them for a few years he started releasing his tracks on Third Eye Records (Honduras) True type tracks' sister label GTK Musik from Guatemala and now on his own imprint Altrd Music.
Matt Salamone has been a musician since 2002, audio engineer since 2005, and producer since 2010. In 2018 he started his solo project, Secus, with a forthcoming release on Ascetic Limited. Originally a drummer, he is strongly influenced by jazz and metal genre's, translating their deep, driving, and technical elements into his own composition of techno. His powerful yet dynamic approach aims to satisfy everyone on the dance floor.
Together, through discovering their similar tastes in music, they formed Motionen.
Motionen's debut EP is titled 'Imago' and was released on their label Ascetic Limited in 2016. In 2017, they released their second EP 'Balance Theory' on Christian Gerlach's Lanthan.audio.
