MATTHEW DEAR is a man of many different guises, whether creating and remixing under his own name, or one of his alter-egos – Jabberjaw, False, and Audion. Depending on who you ask, Matthew Dear is a DJ, a dance-music producer, an experimental pop artist, a bandleader.

He co-founded both Ghostly International and its dancefloor offshoot, Spectral Sound. He’s had remixes commissioned by The XX, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Spoon, Hot Chip, The Postal Service, and Chemical Brothers; he’s made mixes for the Fabric mix series and Get Physical’s Body Language.

Matthew Dear’s new album, ‘Black City’, is an album centred around the Black City that Matthew Dear has created. The Black City can’t be found on any map. It’s a composite, an imaginary metropolis peopled by desperate cases, lovelorn souls, and amoral motives. Like most literary Gothams, Black City is a place to love and hate, as seedy as a nightclub’s back room and as seductive as the promise of power. Matthew Dear, the musician, may live in New York City, but the Matthew Dear of Black City inhabits a sound-world unlike any other: a monument to the shadowy side of urban life that bumps and creaks, shudders and wakes up screaming in the middle of the night. Black City is Matthew Dear’s third album on Ghostly International, and it’s his darkest and most engrossing work to date. He straddles multiple musical worlds and belongs to none—and he’s just hitting his stride.

DARKSTAR in 2010 are an upgraded model of the Darkstar which released the much loved single ‘Aidy’s Girl Is A Computer’ at the end of 2009. That song, and previous singles ‘Need You’ and ‘Squeeze My Lime’ hinted at a nascent songwriting talent and mastery of oozing synth drones that has burst into life on their debut album, ‘North’, out October 18th. The band have adjusted their focus, adding lead singer James Buttery to the production and writing team of James Young and Aiden Whalley. With the beauty of subtle distortion, their sound blends crunchy, citric synths, baroque strings, piano and tender guitar with vocal harmonies, gently laced with glitches and noise.

Fresh off the back of a Gold Panda tour, GHOST EYES is a farmboy who didn’t take over his father’s business and an autosalesman’s son who didn’t take over his fathers business making hip-hop influenced alternative music creating layered textures of instruments, electronics and gathered sound samples, singing confessions of the joyous blues.
