Matthew Dear

Dog Days

The preliminary single to Matthew Dear’s debut album Leave Luck to Heaven is an engaging amalgamation of minimal techno, house, and disco. With it, the promise of Matthew Dear has been fulfilled. While previous efforts like EP1 and EP2 featured Matthew’s voice in cut-up, deranged fragments, “Dog Days” features his first attempt at full-on pop vocals.

Dog Days is a future classic, a song fit for virtually any self-respecting dancefloor. The perfect marriage between house, techno and disco.

The A-side is an extended version of the album track, while the flip-side contains a reworking from Pantytec (Perlon), who transforms the catchiness of the original into deep, intricate subtlety. Also included is an acappella of the vocals to create your own remixes.
