Artist & Speaker
The Matador Project was set up in December 2006 by Producer/Engineer/DJ "Gavin Lynch". This guise was simply intended for the writing & release of work created in the early hours…Nightworks, this time being when production is at its most natural for the 'Matador Sound'. These early productions often went back and forth as they were road tested at various dj residencies in Dublin, '515@Tripod', 'Acii Disco', & the infamous 'Mixed Salad' parties. These nights & parties would pave the way, stimulate & energize this project & sound in a huge way for the years to come….. Trained as a chef, sound engineer & music producer, Gavin has found his place comfortably in any creative environment, and takes great pride in the work & ethics involved. The journey into techno first began when listening to early dj compilations, 'Dave Clarkes World Service', 'Richie Hawtin's Decks Efx 909' and various others. These 2 particular mixes retained amazing tracklists & from listening to them over & over, whilst sourcing the singles on vinyl, production & engineering was the natural course to take. Understanding, educating, consuming, growing, with time & energy… Having worked and experienced many studio environments, Gavin is now based in Dublin Ireland in his own production studio where, day to day, night to night, music is being created, drums processed, sound designed & tracks completed… "Deep, Dark, Chuggy, Warped, Trippy, Driving….once its interesting…..im on it"
