Rioux's first offering of 2016 comes in the form of "Prime Matter," a haunting house track with a blooming bass-line, steel drums, and vocals filled with mystique.

"Prime matter is the state of energy in its raw, potential form. With these sounds I imagine being on the cusp of a great transformation (and the test that comes with it.)" says Rioux.

"Prime Matter" follows a prolific 2015 in which the young Detroit native released the labyrinthine ambient-house track "Evolver (Return)," followed by it's shape-shifting collage video. Earlier in 2015, Rioux shared the genre-bending EP, Evolver, which included its own interactive virtual environment, designed in collaboration with Vinyl Williams.

This past summer marked the 1-year anniversary of Rioux's collaborative LP with Astrophysicist Stephon Alexander and No Wave pioneer Arto Lindsay, Here Comes Now. Rioux looks forward to a productive 2016 overseeing Human Pitch, with a diversity of new productions laying in wait.
