Matthew Dear – Deserter

At the 2003 Detroit Electronic Music Festival I was standing next to Matthew Dear (techno mastermind behind the Ghostly International techno label) watching Derrick May play to a crowd of 10,000 people. Just a day earlier I had seen him (Matthew Dear) knock out the most memorable performance of that years DEMF at an afterparty in an opera house with a giant chandelier. One of the most innovative “techno” producers in the world.
