Neighbour will be explaining how he is bridging the gap by utilizing a wide array of hardware and software in his productions and live performances as Neighbour, and in his various collaborative endeavours.
Neighbour's track "Light Breaker featuring Piper Davis" is this year's Beat Camp Remix track. With over $6000 in prizes and a release from his record label Homebreakin' this competition will bring out some great new tunes. Be sure to get the stems and read the rules for this year competition here.
Calgary-born Matt Dauncey aka Neighbour – owner of Homebreakin Records and one of Canada’s top deep house producers – combines the raw ecstasy of the early days of disco with razor-sharp futuristic production.
He toured extensively this past year, culminating in an incredible series of festival dates. Brazil’s Universo Paralello, Tribaltech 2012, and D-Edge Sao Paulo were highlights of his South American tour, while stateside he tore up Burning Man 2012 and a series of gigs in California. Back in Canada, he played nine festivals, including Shambhala, Astral Harvest, Bass Coast, Sync, Bushwacked, Kootenanny, Tall Tree Music Festival, and The Kulth.
In addition to playing primarily original productions, remixes, and edits, Neighbour has been known to play live synthesizer and electric guitar alongside his legendary DJ sets, which range from no-nonsense electric funk bangers to gorgeous technicolor remixes of classic garage, disco, and house music. Recent projects include producing and mastering an album for Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation, a new round of tunes with longtime collaborator MC T hinktank, a full length album with his band Red Light Quadrant, and a series of dubs produced for East Vancouver afrobeat band Miami Device. Ever evolving and deeply committed to the science of good sound, Neighbour’s approach to dance.
Neighbour will also be headlining the Beat Camp Red Bull After Party at Calgary's HiFi club later that day and your registration for Beat Camp will get you free entry.
