Safety Scissors

In the late '90s, San Francisco's electronic music scene began to gain attention and grow through releases on Belief-Systems, Internet broadcasters such as Beta-Lounge, and the electronic-based magazine XL8TR. With a strong group of artists such as Kit Clayton and Mark Farina, the Bay Area developed a reputation for producing a wide range of talented electronic artists -- part of this camp is Matthew Patterson Curry, artistically known as Safety Scissors. Described as having a more upbeat and eclectic minimalist dub sound, Curry has recorded for the labels Force Tracks, Context, Plug Research, and Beta Bodega. Often adding his own unpolished vocals and sampled additions, Curry has grown into his own identity amongst the Belief-Systems collective.

Curry is originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and relocated to the San Francisco area to have a short stint in art school. Deciding to focus more on music, Curry eventually joined the Belief Systems/Context Records collective. A part of a distinct assembly of artists and musicians, he began working with Kit Clayton, Sutekh, and Twerk. Though he is mostly known for his more offbeat ambient works, he also produced more dance-oriented material for the labels Cytrax and Force Tracks. Curry also performs under the name Moron with Seth Horvitz (Sutekh). In 2000 Curry moved to Berlin, which at the time was a sort of artistic oasis for many electronic producers and artists. The following year Curry released Parts Water on Plug Research. Curry and Sutekh collaborated on 2002's Pigeon Funk Presents!!! EP, which spawned a 2004 remix album. Safety Scissors' second album, 2005's Tainted Lunch, emphasized the quirkiest, poppiest side of the sound Curry set forth on Parts Water. After spending several years concentrating on festival performances and remixes for the likes of Grizzly Bear and Matmos, Curry settled in Brooklyn and returned in 2013 with In a Manner of Sleeping, perhaps the smoothest blend of the experimental, electronic, and pop elements in Safety Scissors' music. ~ Diana Potts
