There are at least eight artists with the name Matrix: 1. Matrix is the pseudonym of London based drum and bass producer and DJ Jamie Quinn. Quinn started his musical career as one half of drum and bass duo Turbosound, who signed to DJ SS's F Project Records label, an offshoot of Formation Records.

In 2008 they found a new home at Defected Records, leaving Positiva after 4 years. Since joining Defected they have already made their mark at the world’s leading house music label.
