DJ and producer Matthew Dear, who also releases music under the aliases Audion, Jabberjaw and False, is the co-founder of electronic music label Ghostly International. Heavily influenced by the Detroit techno scene while growing up in Michigan, Dear began DJing in the mid 1990s and met Sam Valenti IV, other co-founder of Ghostly International, while DJing a party at the University of Michigan. The two heavily influenced each other, but decided to maintain separate solo careers, Dear releasing his first single in 1999 to much acclaim from the underground scene. Though he has explored many sounds, Dear's music is best known as a fusion of avant-pop and minimalist techno and has a wide fan base throughout the US and UK.
The Dig might not have become an official band until 2007, but it has its roots with David Baldwin and Emile Mosseri, who met in 6th grade and began playing together as an early incarnation of The Dig immediately thereafter. As the two young musicians progressed through high school and college, they picked up band members along the way until the band was fully fleshed out into a four-piece. Based out of New York, the group's breed of likable indie rock full of pop hooks and angular guitars, reminiscent of The Strokes, has won it residencies at respected venues and spots opening up for prominent bands that come through the city. While The Dig's fame might be centralized in New York, as it begins touring outside of state lines, the group is quickly building up a more extensive fan base.
