JOKERS OF THE SCENE :: CANADIAN ELECTRONIC MUSIC

MUSIC FIRST PRESENTS: NEIGHBOUR "ELECTRO DISCO BOOGIE HOUSE" HOMEBREAKIN RECORDS Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada http://soundcloud.com/neighbour-homebreakin http://www.myspace.com/neighbourhomebreakin http://www.discogs.com/artist/Neighbour One part sexy robot and one part aerobics instructor, 25 year old Matt Dauncey has managed to find the middle ground between music and athletics. By harnessing the power of wrestling suits, tennis sweatbands, vintage synthesizers, and electric guitar, Neighbour has tapped into an ancient power-source that has given him the capacity to conjure up frenzied dancefloors wherever he is needed. Through a mysterious process that involves not one, but TWO gigantic crystals, the Homebreakin Records co-owner has managed to combine the raw ecstacy of the early days of disco with razor-sharp futuristic production. His hybrid DJ / live performance tore across the continent this year, culminating in an incredible series of festival dates across western Canada, including headlining slots at Shambhala 2009, Soundwave, Bass Coast Project, Astral Harvest, and Summer Break. In addition to playing almost 100% original production and remixes, Neighbour plays 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. Not one to be pigeonholed, Neighbour has spent the better part of the last two years collaborating with everyone in sight. Upcoming dancehall tracks with Calgary's Ouda Ouda, boogie-raps with fellow performer MC ThinkTank, and an unbelieveable slate of remixes and original releases guarantee that as soon as you think you know that "Neighbour Sound", it has grown into something completely different. Some people say that dance music isn't as fun as it used to be; then again, some people haven't seen a grown man in a unitard shoot lazers out of his guitar far away into the night sky.
