It didn’t take long for Ann Arbor, MI’s Matthew Dear to catapult himself into the front rank of microhouse producers, emerging in the early 2000s with a string of high-quality releases for Spectral Sound, Plus 8, and Perlon (under several aliases). Born and raised in Texas, Dear first discovered electronic music at age 16; he later attended the University of Michigan, where he met future Ghostly International label founder Sam Valenti IV. He started DJing at parties and eventually moved into production. In late 1999, he and Daisha teamed up to deliver the inaugural Ghostly 12“ release, „Hands Up for Detroit.“ Dear wound up on Ghostly’s more dance-oriented subsidiary Spectral Sound, for which he debuted in 2001 with the 12“ „Irreparably Dented“; another, „Stealing Moves,“ followed in 2002. That year, Dear signed to Richie Hawtin’s Plus 8 label under the alias False, and issued three 12“ singles of minimalist house up through early 2003, which were later gathered on a self-titled CD compilation. 2003 was his busiest year yet: as Jabberjaw, he released the „Girlfriend“ 12“ on Berlin’s Perlon label, and returned to Spectral Sound for EP1 and EP2 that summer. Late in the year, he released his first-ever full-length album, Leave Luck to Heaven, also on Spectral Sound. Titled after the loose English translation of the word „Nintendo,“ the album earned positive notice from a number of publications, and spun off the highly acclaimed single „Dog Days.

    Oh and as a follow-up: I asked Gilead about new False (black metal) material and I think he said they might come out with a full-length this year. They should be coming out with an EP, at the least I think.

    Last.fm should really do something about all those mixed pages (I came here for False from Minneapolis)

    I wonder when False will release a full-length? After that phenomenal EP and split I'm dying for more from this band.

    Saw FALSE with Absu on 4/19. Pretty extreme. Maybe they could work on getting the distortion under control but the singer had great presence.

    @DiaArtio - You're right about that split. I dug the Barghest tracks, but more importantly found out 'Church Tower's are pretty fuckin' heavy! Also really enjoyed their "Untitled" as well. Came looking for minimal techno, left with awesome black metal -- hell yes. Thanks, False.

    Oh how I love Matthew Dear; each alias is unique and equally awesome. Now time to check out this black metal band...

    False killed it last night in Huntington WV, one of the best shows I've been to in a long time.

    Along with Ash Borer, easily one of my favourite (BM) bands of the last year or so...

    Yup, they were brilliant. Rachel screams like no other. She has no peers, except maybe the guys in Fell Voices.

    So is it "Passing Suffering" or "Passive Suffering"? On the insert and etched in the vinyl it says "Passive" but everywhere else (like bandcamp) its the other way.

    Saw 'em in St. Augustine with Thou the other week, they were really impressive, very passionate vocal performance.
