2nd Annual Boxing Day Sound Clash feat. NEIGHBOUR
DEC.26/07 2nd ANNUAL BOXING DAY SOUNDCLASH
NEIGHBOUR [Homebreakin Records]
Matt aka NEIGHBOUR has lived and breathed music since he busted out the cradle. At age 5 he would cajole strangers with his beloved ukulele, progressing onto guitar and bass as time went on. After learning to play saxophones in the jazz band and plying his trade as a music teacher throughout high school, he moved on to Mount Royal College where he took part in the Jazz Studies program on guitar. Through it all, Matt developed his recording skills alongside his instruments, learning on the classic four-track Tascam and moving onto serious multitracking and computer sequencing. A strong love for funk, soul, and disco developed as he worked at local record stores and sure enough, these elements are ever present in his groove-drenched productions. These days, when he's not producing or teaching music for Home Breakin', he spends his time playing gigs around town with various bands, DJing, and digging for the next break to transform into funky black gold.
