Audio Artist Spotlight: Matthew Dear and Oliver

This weekend we’re excited to host two extremely special nights of music. On Friday night, September 15th, experimental pop legend Matthew Dear makes his Audio debut, followed by a night of epic proportions: the famed duo Oliver hits the club on their exclusive tour celebrating their new album, Full Circle.

Get an intro to their sounds, their styles and their backgrounds below.

Friday, September 15: Matthew Dear

Matthew Dear is an avant-garde, experimental pop producer that made a name for himself under numerous aliases: as Dear himself, as minimal master Audion and as the face-melting techno producer Jabberjaw. He’s also quite the leader on the recording company front as well, as he’s the co-founder of two labels: Ghostly International and Spectral Sound.

Dear got his start in 2003 with his single “Dog Days”, which catapulted his name into the limelight. He had been interested in the electronic music scene for many years – he hopped into it at the ripe age of 16 – and eventually put out his first release for Ghostly International with Daisha in 1999 called “Hands Up For Detroit.”

Dear’s sound may come in many different forms and genres, but one thing is clear: he truly knows what he’s doing when it comes to producing. His past two releases, including the singles “Bad Ones” ft. Tegan and Sara and “Modafinal blues”, show his keen capabilities for creating tracks that both soothe and captivate listeners.

Saturday, September 16: Oliver

The dynamic duo known as Oliver has quite the night in store this Saturday, as both band members will be behind the decks at Audio. Their current tour celebrates their new album, Full Circle, which hit #1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart at the end of August.

This dream team, made up of two men by the name of Vaughn “U-Tern” Oliver and Oliver “Oligee” Goldstein, has made a name for themselves for their diverse producing capabilities and much-loved tracks like “Night Is On My Mind” and “Control”. They’ve made their rounds at some of the biggest electronic music festivals across the globe and have mastered the art of combining a bit of funk with a heavy bass.
