We are absolutely deligthed to be bringing Matador and Hobo to Glasgow after over a year of trying to arrange dates, we have managed to secure both of these artists on one night.
Glasgow your in for a treat!!
"Deep, Dark, Chuggy, Warped, Trippy, Driving....once it's interesting, im on it"
The "Matador" project was born in Dublin in 2006, created by Gavin Lynch as a guise
for the writing and release of music created in the early hours.
Inspired by previous creative roles as a chef and sound engineer, Matador's music has
evolved into the brooding, chugging, energetic and at times emotional sound, that has
been at the forefront of techno in 2012.
Building on these solid productions, Matador was launched onto the scene with his
remix of Bryan Zentz "D Clash" on Plus 8, and then went on to play his first Minus
event, the official "Fly Bermuda After Party" at Watergate. The following week saw his
first Minus release the "Kingswing EP" closely followed by the "Spooks Ep" - exploring
the twisted but organic techno sound he has become known for.
"Once it's interesting, I'm on it," says Matador, and it was this mischievous attitude
that piqued the interest of music fans & artists alike around the world. In the past 12
months, he has remixed Moby, Booka Shade, Layo & Bushwacka and most recently,
the new collaboration from Dubfire & Oliver Huntemann.
His live set was voted into Resident Advisor's top 20 this year showcasing at Mixmag
Live in London, Space at the Miami Music Conference, Sonar Barcelona and the
infamous Melt festival. Having laid the foundations during a Summer in Ibiza, Matador
embarked on a whirlwind international tour with the notorious "Enter" shows, taking in
parties in North and South America, Spain and Japan, and through this, his music has
been introduced to a new generation of listeners around the globe.
2013 has seen more touring for Matador as he travels with his ever developing live
show, already playing BPM, WMC Miami, Movment Detroit, Timewarp and with Exit festival Serbia &
many more he is one of the busiest live acts on the circuit. But he promises fans new music and vows to spend as much time as possible where it all started: "late night sessions in my studio in Dublin!!"
Hobo | Bio
Despite being an integral member of the Minus family since 2007, Joel Boychuk very
much has his own identity. On a select number of EPs and singles over the years
has the Canadian explored his own raw form of techno expressionism: sometimes
dark and abstract, others more sample heavy and groove based, it is music for all
recesses of both your mind, and the dancefloor.
As a child it was drums and indie bands which interested Joel: formal training in
percussion and music theory occupied much of his youth until the mid to late 90s,
but then came electronica into his life…
“Once a friend showed me Kraftwerk's Computer World I quickly shifted my
attention to electronica,” says Joel. “I could pick up radio stations from Detroit and
it was from there I discovered everything from Plastikman to Jeff Mills to Juan Atkins,
all the way over to drum & bass and weirder IDM from labels like Warp.”
From that point on, Joel devoured as much electronic music as possible, though a
little helping hand from his mother in gaining a fake ID was what really set him off.
With ID in hand, he went on to spend every weekend exploring warehouse parties
around Detroit, forever fomenting his own techno tastes and meeting life long
friends and colleagues who now tour Europe in their own right.
And so does Joel, with dates in the past at influential clubs like Watergate, Berlin
(his first overseas performance, no less) Womb, Tokyo, fabric, London and Rex,
Paris as well as festivals like Sonar, Love Parade and Timewarp, constantly
channelling those early 90s Detroit influences from the city’s radio stations to its DJs
to the famed Untitled party at The Shelter.
A keen proponent of doing his own thing and going his own way, Hobo production
gems to date include 'Failsafe' and 'Midnight' plucked from 2008’s From A to B as
well as 'Symptom' off his Trackz EP. Most recently, of course, the debut full length
Iron Triangle has been a critical success since release in February. The album
explores stripped back synth textures, minimal grooves and comes doused in plenty
of organic atmosphere, but also marks the closing of a chapter for Hobo…
Having spent a lot of time crafting his album, the man now wants to focus on DJing
(after being an almost exclusively live performer for 6 years) and intends to get to
work writing some all out dancefloor jams. “I’m really just hoping to have a lot of fun
on the road this year” he says. Should you join him at any point on that road, it’s
likely you will too.
