Matthew Dear

Post by Vicster » Fri Aug 27, 2004 12:01 am

This guy is one of my favourites, I highly recommend you see him live.
Enjoy x.

Texas-born, Detroit-based Matthew Dear has made remarkable steps toward becoming one of America’s best new techno artists. Between his stunning live performances and evolved DJ sets, Matthew has perked the ears of the industry’s best. His debut album under his birth name, Leave Luck to Heaven, was released in winter 2003-04 on Spectral Sound/Ghostly International, having garnered positive reviews in such publications as Rolling Stone, Spin, NME, and the NY Times and remaining on the CMJ RPM chart for over 13 weeks. Additionally, Dear has recorded for both Plus 8 (as False) and Perlon (as Jabberjaw), in addition to his work for Ghostly International, including 2003’s EP1 and EP2. Summer 2004 will include extensive European and U.S. tour and festival dates, as well as the release of an EP on Spectral under the name Audion and a new mini-LP, Backstroke.

My pleasure! :D

I've just heard he is playing Glasgow again pretty soon along with Villalobos and Hawtin....aaaahhhh the Sonar memories come flooding back! I cant wait. Each time I see him he plays a different live set unlike many other live artists. His stuff as Audion is nearest to what he does live. 8)
